Bills of Exchange Act  Mr. Speaker, I really appreciated my colleague's speech. I thank her for that. This is difficult for people like me who did not experience the atrocities that others in the community did. What we can do is put ourselves in their shoes and be allies. It is our duty as parliamenta

Bills of Exchange Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. I am fortunate to serve with her on the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security, which is studying systemic racism within police services in Canada.

Bills of Exchange Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I see this bill as a step in the right direction towards reconciliation, but more needs to be done. Earlier I asked the Minister of Canadian Heritage whether he agreed that we need to accept and implement the United Nations Decl

Bills of Exchange Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. One trap that we must not fall into is making this statutory holiday an ordinary holiday like any other. I liked the suggestion made earlier by a Conservative member who said that we, as parliamentarians, have a major role to pl

Bills of Exchange Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I applaud the introduction of this bill. It is important to take time to reflect and remember, but I think that we need to go much further than that. This bill responds to call to action no. 80 in the Truth and Reconciliation Com

Post-Secondary Education  Mr. Speaker, as institutions of higher learning, universities are an ideal venue for debate and analysis. What are the implications of a word? What does it mean to those it is directed at? What weight does it carry today and in history? Universities are the place for such debate

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. The Conservatives' motion is especially relevant because the priority at this time is the pandemic. The people we represent are already being asked to do a lot. They are being asked to make sacrifices and to follow public heal

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. What I find interesting about this motion is that it calls on the Standing Committee on Health to study the inadequacy of health transfers. We have been talking about that a lot since the throne speech. I actually received a no

Marie-Paule Gaudreau  Mr. Speaker, I would like to take a moment to send birthday greetings to Marie-Paule Gaudreau, better known as Madame Boulianne or “grand-maman Bou”, a remarkable woman who will celebrate her 103rd birthday on October 23.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, one of the arguments made by the Liberals in response to this motion is that this is not the time to look into corruption because of the current pandemic. The government can cite the pandemic as the reason for the blockages at the border, immigration, Service Canad

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, my colleague made several interesting points in his speech, and I thank him for that. Where we may not agree so much is on how the RCMP should intervene in the current context. In light of that, does he not agree that current tensions between the Mi'kmaq and the non

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I completely agree with him that, while the government is good at putting on a show, making grand gestures and holding emergency debates, it never really takes concrete action. I sincerely hope that the government will pay heed

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Madam Speaker, I think those two issues go hand in hand. What we want is for the federal government to issue clear guidelines. We saw the indigenous fishers' side and the non-indigenous fishers' side. We can understand the current tensions. The federal government is dragging its

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I think the minister absolutely needs to go to Nova Scotia and sit down with the stakeholders to negotiate an agreement. That is long overdue. The problem is that the government always waits for something really serious to ha
