United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I asked a Liberal member a question earlier. I asked him why his party had not moved forward with such a bill earlier, since it is such a strong supporter of reconciliation. He said that Mr. Saganash's bill was blocked by the Con

United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I applaud the tabling of the bill, but unfortunately it is a bit late coming. Our NDP colleagues have been introducing bills for the implementation of the United Nations declaration since 2007. The Liberal government has said man

Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2020  Madam Speaker, the time allotted for questions goes by very quickly. I would still like to ask my colleague a question. She said the federal government does not provide assistance to the oil and gas sector, but it seems to me that that is false. In the midst of the pandemic, the

Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2020  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. He spoke about the federal government's deal with Air Canada, worth nearly $6 billion. There were some conditions to this agreement, one of which is that passengers must get refunds for their plane tickets, which is a good thin

Gender-Based Violence  Madam Chair, I thank my colleague for her excellent question, which, frankly, is also a very difficult one. I do think that is where we must start. As I was saying, we must work together, regardless of our differences or the political parties to which we belong. Yes, it starts w

Gender-Based Violence  Madam Chair, it is always a pleasure to rise in the House on behalf of the Bloc Québécois and the people of Avignon—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia, even though we would prefer it if the issue that brings us together here this evening simply did not exist. I really wanted to take part

National Strategy to Redress Environmental Racism Act  Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure for me to rise on behalf of the Bloc Québécois and the people of Avignon—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia, particularly to talk about the environment.

Opposition Motion—Plan for Reopening the Economy  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I do not know if he heard the speech I gave a little earlier today. I spoke about several interesting tidbits that I had read in Alec Castonguay's book about the handling of the early days of the pandemic. I do not know whether h

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. What happened in Quebec's long-term care centres was indeed a tragedy, and that is what Mr. Castonguay says in his book. He says that the long-term care centres were a blind spot for Quebec's health care system and that they

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, as I said earlier, I think we need to take the time to look back and learn from our mistakes in order to move forward. Obvious mistakes were made with regard to vaccine procurement. Everything is going relatively smoothly now, but Canada is lagging behind the other

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, that is a good question, but I think that was the point of my speech today. We are dealing with an unprecedented crisis. We were certainly not prepared. We had to bring in measures quickly, without really knowing if they would work. In my opinion, it is premature

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure to rise on behalf of the Bloc Québécois and the people of Avignon—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia. I must say that there are a number of worthwhile points in the Conservatives' motion. It is true that the COVID‑19 restrictions have had serious ec

Employment Insurance Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. I know that she has been working incredibly hard on this file. A very touching video on this subject has been shared in recent weeks. I also heard from a great-aunt who had cancer that recurred twice. She had to go back to work a

Employment Insurance Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I know he was outraged that people were taking non-essential trips and they should not be entitled to the benefit. The Bloc Québécois is also outraged, and we actually suggested that once the situation was corrected, it should be

Employment Insurance Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her speech. She talked about the workers in her riding. There are also workers in my riding who have called my constituency office because they are caught up in red tape related to their EI claims. Things do not always go smoothly. Th
