Macleod  Mr. Speaker, floods have devastated my community, but with aid of Canadians across the country, we came together to help our friends, our neighbours, and our families in a critical time of need. These disasters impacted us profoundly. The scar will take time to heal, but it wil

Supporting Non-Partisan Agents of Parliament Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to participate in today's debate.

Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate my colleague's question, but obviously he has not read the economic action plan or the budget implementation act that we are talking about today. The new children's fitness tax credit is refundable. It is $1,000, and low-income families are able to acces

Economic Action Plan 2014 Act, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the question from my hon. colleague. I think he understands that this budget implementation act will focus on the economy, promote jobs, and be there to help young families and families across the country. If he reads that, he will see that in there.

North West Mounted Police  Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to a Canadian icon. In the autumn of 1874, Colonel Macleod and his troop of red coats pitched camp on the banks of the Oldman River, establishing the first fort and first law force in what would become the province of Alberta. This hard

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, thanks to our new family tax credit and the enhanced universal child care benefit, 100% of Canadian families with children in Macleod and across Canada will be better off. This means working, stay-at-home and single parents, one earner and two earner families, and, i

Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate this opportunity to rise for the debate on this very important issue. I would like to start with a pretty simple statement, one which I think may be a radical notion to some of my colleagues. Evil is real, and evil exists in the world around us today. C

Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague brought up some good points, but I want to reiterate what I said earlier. The bill does enshrine the rule of law and that CSIS, as in the past, must act strictly by Canadian law. The bill would further strengthen that Canadians and people around the worl

Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act  Mr. Speaker, comparing the ability to access a passport and a semi-automatic weapon is a pretty far reach. If we were to ask almost any law-abiding gun owner about some of the issues they face in getting licences and using their firearms, they are quite extensive compared to what
