Broadcasting Act  Mr. Speaker, our broadcasting rules are pretty clear. Content must be 55% Canadian, and 50% of that must be in French, if memory serves, although that was over 25 years ago. In addition to collecting tax dollars, would it not also be a good idea to think about increasing those q

Expropriation Act  Madam Speaker, I rise this evening to speak on behalf of the Bloc Québécois about Bill C-222, which would amend the Expropriation Act. The concept of expropriation is not new in the history of humankind, nor is it new to Canada. Expropriation has been used since ancient times an

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, the government had a choice. It could either award contracts to the Davie shipyard at a cost of $1.4 billion, or it could have the work done under the shipbuilding strategy at a cost of more than $4 billion. That is a difference of $2.6 billion. That is how much the

House debate  Madam Speaker, I have a simple question. How can we ensure that this training does not become a convention where a bunch of pals get together once a year? How can we ensure that the training has a tangible, visible impact on both the Crown and the judge, so that we never again h

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, the Davie shipyard is Canada's expert on icebreakers. However, Ottawa has been slow to award a contract of more than $1 billion for the construction of the polar icebreaker Diefenbaker. The contract has been in limbo since 2013. Ottawa had to withdraw the order fro

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, that does not pass the smell test. Davie is a global leader and a national centre of expertise when it comes to icebreakers. It is Canada's premier shipbuilder with five construction berths, unlike Seaspan, which only has one. The Davie shipyard is prepared to take t

Income Tax Act  Madam Speaker, I really enjoyed my colleague's speech. We share the same opinion on the government's tremendous and unprecedented capacity to wait too long before making decisions. I would like my colleague to tell me how many businesses have had to close their doors for good be

Income Tax Act  Madam Speaker, the question is quite simple. We welcome the bill, which includes several proposals the Bloc Québécois has made in the past. This shows that by working together we can come up with something worthwhile. Nevertheless, there are some major oversights, such as air tr

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I hear my colleague loud and clear, and audits can be a way for large and small businesses to improve. My colleague mentioned manufacturing companies. That said, the government keeps repeating that we have to work together and that it is here to help citizens. Bu

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, my question is similar to my colleague's. From the outset, the hon. member for Joliette has repeatedly called within the Standing Committee on Finance for changes to the commercial rent assistance program to make it more flexible. It is now expected that there wil

Attack in Old Quebec  Mr. Speaker, we were all horrified to learn of the tragic events that unfolded in Quebec City on Saturday night.

Bills of Exchange Act  Madam Speaker, I truly want to thank my colleague from Manicouagan for her speech, which really touched my heart, because I also come from the North Shore and have lived with these people. One person I have had the pleasure of meeting is Marly Fontaine, an artist who literally h

Bills of Exchange Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to commend my colleague and her family for their resilience and strength in the face of those hardships. The first nations and the Inuit and Métis peoples have suffered greatly. The creation of a day of commemoration is a first step. I am thinking of

Intergovernmental Relations  Mr. Speaker, the federal government rightly apologized for the mass internment of Japanese Canadians without cause during the Second World War. For the same reasons and the same war, the Prime Minister himself promised an official apology to the Italian community. The only peopl
