Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, yesterday, we learned just how little the Prime Minister thinks of Canadians who are actually going to have to pay his carbon tax. Saskatchewan is taking the Liberals to court to fight against the carbon tax, yet the Prime Minister said that any citizens group that r

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague hit a lot of key points in his question. One of the unfortunate things that we are seeing is certainly that erosion in the trust of Canadians, whether CUPW workers or small business owners, in Canada Post. We have to ensure that we have a reliable serv

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, this is kind of the crux of this problem. I appreciate my colleague's question, but again, he is going back to something that happened seven years ago. It is time for the Liberals to take responsibility for the situation they have placed themselves in now. This is th

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, the member is talking about all of the things the Liberals allegedly did differently. They are in the same position. They do not have an agreement, they have brought forward back-to-work legislation and they have left everything until the 11th hour. I go back to the

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, this is going to be a red letter day, because we agree yet again. I could not agree more, and I did mention in my speech that I do not think there is opposition between small business and Canada Post workers. I think I made that quite clear. They both understand the

Postal Services Resumption and Continuation Act  Mr. Speaker, we have talked a lot about some of the consequences of the rotating strikes over the last several weeks. Those on the NDP, the Conservative and Liberal sides may disagree on a few issues when it comes to labour, but what it comes down to, in many cases, is how we app

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, I always appreciate my colleague's speeches during debate. I appreciate their passion. I am hoping that this is an example of the passion and commitment they will have in fighting for Alberta's oil and gas workers and for B.C.'s forestry workers. I hope they are next

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Mr. Speaker, obviously my colleague and I will disagree on the necessity of the back-to-work legislation. Even in 2011, we understood the seriousness of the issue. This is not something that any government should take lightly. Understanding how important it was to ensure that ev

An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Postal Services  Madam Speaker, I would certainly not be one to profess that the Conservatives and NDP would agree on a lot of issues when it comes to labour. However, I would agree with her on the point that when we brought this issue up in 2011, we did give members of the opposition every oppor

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to pose questions to the minister on this issue. Yesterday during her presentation she talked about the crisis that our small businesses across Canada are facing. We have heard from small businesses across the country that have said many

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary brings up a good point. On his direction, he is right. This could have been a great starting point. However, if it was a great starting point, why do we have letters from dozens of stakeholders who are upset with the bill and questioning w

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, that is something we all have to take to heart. When we ask Canadians to come to Ottawa or to participate in a study because we want to consult with them and get their opinion and their input to help build legislation, and they come up with something that we then ign

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague has always been very good to work with. I do agree that we work well on the committee. However, unfortunately, she does have to take some responsibility for what this bill is. To go back to what the Conservative government did in the past, the minister h

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, I did not have an opportunity to address that in my speech and I appreciate my hon. colleague's bringing that up. One of the biggest frustrations with Bill C-81 is that we had representatives from first nations communities come to committee and it is almost like th

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to rise today to speak to Bill C-81. Those of us who are members of the HUMA committee worked extremely hard to come up with a bill that we thought would address the needs of disabled Canadians across the country. As I said at the outset, I look at
