Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure to rise and address the chamber. I am disappointed in the Conservative Party. Those members have been consistent in terms of not really being genuine with respect to supporting the important issue of reconciliation. It has been interesting

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, with respect to consistent support for reconciliation, it is encouraging to hear some of the support for it. However, I do not think that is universally applied throughout the chamber. We often find the Conservatives lacking. They need to reaffirm where they stand.

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, the Conservative members have actually stood up and said that they do not want to progress with the bill because they do not support the legislation. When the member talks about the number of calls for action that have been taken, he makes reference to nine or 10

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, I too rise on a point of order. It is with regard to comments made by the hon. member for Lakeland. Today is a very big day. It has been a very passionate day in debate. However, threatening Canadian unity is never the way to go. I would ask the member in question t

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I appreciate the position of the Bloc on this legislation, and I want to echo some thoughts regarding the importance of the true value of incorporating call to action number 94 into that oath. Has the member ever participated, as an observer or anything of that n

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, it bears reminding members that there are 94 calls to action. This is the 94th. There are a number of calls to action which the government has acted on over the last few years. However, the total number of 94 are not just for the federal government. Many of those c

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I am glad New Democrats are going to be supporting Bill C-6. It is a pretty straightforward piece of legislation. It does respond to the Truth and Reconciliation call to action number 94. That is encouraging. What is discouraging is that a good portion of the membe

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I must say I am a little surprised at the position the Conservative Party seems to be taking on this. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission report has 94 calls to action. The very last call was to make this change. The member is right. This is, in essence, what

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I want to thank the minister for recognizing the importance of the call to action. There were 94 recommendations that came forward. When I reflect on the last four or five years, we have seen the Government of Canada take action on a number of them. The previous

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, was it a beginner's mistake? At the end of the day, the government has taken substantial action on the calls for action for truth and reconciliation. We have the language heritage bill. We have had legislation dealing with the thousands of children who are in chil

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act  Mr. Speaker, the Conservative Party is sending a confusing message. On the one hand, it does not really want to work on Fridays, and we know that. On the other hand, the Conservatives moved another motion saying that we should adjourn the debate on a piece of legislation that eve

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act  Mr. Speaker, we are here to work, unlike the official opposition. It is really important to recognize that. We are debating Bill C-3, a bill the Conservatives previously supported. I am a bit surprised that when they debate, they talk about anything but Bill C-3 and at the first
