Online News Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank the hon. member for d'Abitibi—Témiscamingue for his speech. If I understood his comments correctly, the Bloc Québécois will be voting in favour of this bill, even though it does have some concerns. I believe that the Conservative Party has the same concerns

Online News Act  Mr. Speaker, I think the preference of our side would have been to draft our own piece of legislation if we were in government, but that is not the case. The next best scenario is this type of amendment. As the member ought to know, as she has been in the House a long time, ther

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, leave it to the Liberals to censor Bill C-11. In less than an hour, they forced a bill through the House that negatively impacts each and every Canadian who watches videos or listens to music on the Internet.

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, again and again, there is more disinformation from the Liberal government. This is a flawed bill.
