Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, in the times leading up to the election in 2015, we witnessed hermetically sealed government events that people went to.

National Impaired Driving Prevention Week  Madam Speaker, when I was in my early teens, one of my favourite buddies was a cousin. We woke up one morning to the news that he had been killed by a drunk driver up in Prince George. In those days, the penalties were not what we would see today. I think the driver was fined som
