Telecommunications Act Mr. Speaker, the hon. member seems to be concerned about the enforcement powers in this legislation. However, without those enforcement powers, it would be kind of a useless piece of legislation. If I am sending an email to him to go over there, somehow or another, his entity m
Telecommunications Act Madam Speaker, I would be interested in the hon. member's thoughts on how we protect rights without going down the rights rabbit hole that leads to paralysis with respect to a space that is going so fast that very few of us can actually comprehend how fast it is moving.
Telecommunications Act Madam Speaker, I pretty well agree with everything the member said. However, what I am concerned about is that partisanship is a debilitating exercise around here and this is serious business. Does the member have any thoughts as to how to innoculate this bill, in particular, f
Telecommunications Act Madam Speaker, the brief answer is no. I think we will always be playing catch-up. In this case, things are moving so quickly.
Telecommunications Act Madam Speaker, that was an excellent question. I wish I had written it myself, but apparently someone, or something, else already had. Prior to question period, I was sitting with my colleague from Scarborough—Rouge Park. He wrote a speech for me, through ChatGPT, on my modern s
Telecommunications Act Madam Speaker, that is two impossible questions in a row, and I congratulate the member for them. The first was whether cyberwarfare should be declared an act of war. To my mind, an attack is an attack. If someone is running cars off the road, or interfering with pipelines or ho
Telecommunications Act Mr. Speaker, in some respects, Bill C-26 is quite complicated, but it is also quite simple. It aspires to have the risks of cybersecurity systems identified, managed and addressed so we are at much less risk because of our cyber system. In the last while, I have had the good for
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act Madam Speaker, those are excellent questions. I wish I could wave a magic wand and give the member the absolute assurance that the government would do that, hence it is the reason for devoting part of my speech to the implementation part of the bill. The first question is on gap
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act Madam Speaker, the hon. member points to an enormous problem that is ever growing. In fact, I would point to the weekend's newspapers talking about an issue of Mexican labourers in northern Toronto. The numbers are very difficult to come by. Whatever estimates we have are way bel
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act Madam Speaker, I take issue with the member saying this would require companies to do nothing. This is a substantial change in practice. That is number one. Number two is that I disagree profoundly with the analysis the hon. member made. The two places where due diligence legisl
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act moved that the bill be concurred in.
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act Mr. Speaker, I request that it be carried on division. (Motion agreed to)
Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act moved that the bill be read the third time and passed. Mr. Speaker, this has been quite a journey. We are close to the end of that four-year journey and hopefully we will move to a vote fairly quickly. If I spent all my time thanking everyone who has helped us over the previou
Criminal Code Madam Speaker, I thank the member for an excellent question that centres on the issue of practice standards. I have no doubt that, particularly where I live in the east part of Toronto, we have the highest-quality practice standards. However, there can be the highest standards a

Criminal Code Madam Speaker, I want to thank the hon. member for his intervention. We are at a watershed. This legislation kind of fixes the problem. We could pass it or we, as a society, could be serious about the under-resourcing of those who are most vulnerable. I dare say that we are going
