Canada Revenue Agency Mr. Speaker, I would argue that in many ways these tax treaties that the member refers to enable the CRA to be able to withdraw more information, indirectly if not directly. We need that information to ensure that there is less tax avoidance. The member is wrong on the assertio
Canada Revenue Agency Mr. Speaker, when members of the opposition raise issues of this nature, they often get into the specifics and name particular companies. It is important to note that there are confidentiality provisions in the Income Tax Act that actually prevent us from discussing the circumsta
Department of Industry Act Mr. Speaker, it is somewhat disappointing, but I know I will get another chance to add some more words. I appreciate the fact that the member for Beauce has brought forward a private member's bill. I believe he is genuine in what he is attempting to accomplish with the bill. Ho
Department of Industry Act Mr. Speaker, as the months go by, I find the Conservatives and the NDP have a lot more in common. I do not know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Many would suggest it is an unholy alliance. I acknowledge that political entities of all stripes across the country, at the pr
Canada Business Corporations Act Mr. Speaker, I suspect if you were to canvass the House, you would find unanimous consent to call it 5:30 p.m., so we can begin private members' hour.
Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1 Madam Speaker, it is interesting to listen to the Conservatives talk about the price on carbon. A majority of Canadians are actually paying a price on carbon already, today. In fact, what we are seeing, which we never saw with Stephen Harper, is what we call national leadership.
Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1 Madam Speaker, I can assure the member that Quebec counts for a great deal. My colleague across the way made the argument in his comments as to why it is important to have a strong national government here in Canada. Let us think about what the member was saying. He talked about
Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1 Madam Speaker, one of the issues I like to talk about is the Canada child benefit and the amount of money that is going into communities. It does not just apply to Winnipeg North. It applies to every riding. Literally millions of dollars are being put into support for the childre
Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I take exception to a number of issues in the member's statement. I was a provincial MLA for many years and for most of those years, we had an NDP administration in the province of Manitoba. If I can contrast that to what this government has done on gender equality a
Petitions Mr. Speaker, I rise today to table a petition signed by many constituents of Winnipeg North asking the government to look at having a universal pharmacare program, recognizing the importance of the Canada Health Act and adopting changes that would see prescription drugs covered a
Questions on the Order Paper Mr. Speaker, I ask that all questions be allowed to stand at this time.
Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Madam Speaker, members can say what they will, but at the end of the day, it is legalization of cannabis. It has gone through another mechanism in order to prevent certain things from taking place in thousands of homes where people would have the right to make that decision. Whe
Controlled Drugs and Substances Act I am encouraged to hear that.
Controlled Drugs and Substances Act I will keep my eyes on you, Madam Speaker, so that I am not interfering with the other side, as I know the members opposite are a little edgy on this piece of legislation. All private members' bills are wonderful initiatives that individual members bring forward. Some bills will
Controlled Drugs and Substances Act Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to rise to speak to the bill of the member opposite. A fairly significant effort has been made by the Prime Minister, working with the Liberal members of Parliament in particular, but also Canadians from virtually every region of our country, to d
