Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, while Trump closed the doors to those fleeing gang violence and domestic violence, yet many fleeing from Central America cite gang violence as the main reason to seek asylum. Trump's policy is in violation of the UN convention for gender-related persecution. As long

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, the fact is that over 2,000 migrant children are already in baby jails. The parents do not know where they are or when they will see them again. The head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed parents' worst fears. He expects hundreds of separated chi

World Refugee Day  Mr. Speaker, today is World Refugee Day. Globally, conflict, persecution, and disaster have forced over 65 million people to flee their homes in search of safety.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, even former Conservative minister Chris Alexander is calling for the suspension of the safe third country agreement.

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his well-researched speech. The reason I say that is that I have been listening to many of the speeches, and he is the one who actually highlighted all the differences between Bill C-51 and Bill C-59 and where attention needs to be paid.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, the United States is forcibly separating migrant children from their parents when they enter the U.S. to claim asylum.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, I have a news flash for the Prime Minister. The human rights commissioner condemned this policy and calls it unconscionable. This is destroying lives. If Canada does not step up, then we are complicit. Nearly 2,000 children have been sent to mass detention centres, a

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister just does not get it, does he? Climate leaders do not spend billions of dollars to build new pipelines, and they certainly do not put Canadian pensions on the line to do it. We are now hearing that the Canada pension plan may invest in the Liberals

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I want to say very clearly, the NDP supports diplomatic engagement, based on the principle that dialogue is the best path forward to peace and positive change.
