Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, the hon. member asked a question in the context of a government that has done more on the feminist concerns than pretty well any government in history, and that includes pay equity.

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, I always appreciate the comments of my hon. colleague, but it seems to be settled at this point that Alberta crude sells at a discount. It does cost more to upgrade it. I agree with that. It does cost more to ship it. I agree with that. However, we are dependent on

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, I think the hon. member asked a legitimate question. Alberta is a resource-based economy and lives and dies on its resources. Ten years ago, Alberta was king of the hill and doing very well, because its resources were in demand. Regrettably, we have not been able t

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, I am thankful for the opportunity to participate in the debate.

That is, of cour

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, the measurement of the success of the bill will be over time, and that is absolutely necessary. We currently have a system that is not working, that is constitutionally deficient, that offends the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and that has a little too many Ashley

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, I really feel bad that the Liberal Party and the Liberal government adheres to the rule of law. What a concept. We do have those of us in here who make law and we have those down the street, learned judges in the law, who interpret the law. When the interpretation

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, there is clearly an effort to make the secure intervention unit an environment that allows very troubled prisoners to have more human interaction.

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, I will be splitting my time with the member for Brampton Centre. This initiative goes back quite a long way for me.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is quite to the contrary. I feel badly that I am having to repeat myself, but there is a process. The government has initiated the process. That was the responsible thing to do. That would be the responsible thing for any government to do. When the Conservatives w

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the government is doing the exact right thing in accordance with the rules, the policy and the law as it is presently set out.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, like others before me I want to express my personal sympathy to the family of Tori Stafford.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, if my hon. colleague's argument is that there is a right to housing, is there also, therefore, a right to adequate transit? The reason I ask is that housing is not so much an issue where I come from, but adequate transit is. People cannot get to and from Scarborough
