Employment  Mr. Speaker, in Canada, we are fortunate that a person's socio-economic background does not automatically limit the opportunities that are available to them, especially when it comes to education. In fact, Canada leads both the OECD and the G7 when it comes to children being able

Seniors  Mr. Speaker, seniors in my riding of Northumberland—Peterborough South have told me they worry about their financial security. Whether they are retired or approaching retirement, they are concerned not only about their future finances, but also about the day-to-day costs they fac

Impact Assessment Act  —so I am a bit confused. He is suggesting that in committee he would vote for UNDRIP, but in the House he would not. That is a bit rich, frankly.

Impact Assessment Act  In terms of the work we have done through Generation Energy, as an example, 380,000 Canadians contributed to a conversation on Canada's energy future. It is about inclusivity. Conservatives forgot indigenous people. We did not.

Impact Assessment Act  Madam Speaker, obviously I will agree to disagree with the hon. member. I am very confident in saying that the Minister of Environment has lived up to her mandate letter and beyond.

Impact Assessment Act  Madam Speaker, as the Prime Minister has said many times, there is no relationship more important to us than the relationship with indigenous peoples.

Impact Assessment Act  Madam Speaker, the speculation and fearmongering that is coming from the other side is a bit rich. As I said in my remarks, the opportunity for the minister to actually request that the panel reconsider their decision is not a veto. The word is “reconsider”. I think it is really

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the passion with which my colleagues opposite stated their positions.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, as I said in my remarks, this was the most comprehensive, robust consultation in Canada's history on any project. It is interesting that the member opposite is cherry-picking his comments out of what people said. Based on my conversations and the Generation Energy

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the member is bringing up the G20, which is happening this week in Argentina. Canada's membership in the G20 is one of the things that we believe is so important to move a number of the elements I referred to in my speech forward. The elimination of the fossil fuels,
