Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, what is the member's plan to deal with the climate change crisis the world faces? I will give him a minute to think about it, because it may not be the number one priority for his party. I will make two comments while he is doing that. First, it is fascinating how

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, increasing the Canada child benefit, for instance, for lots of low-income aboriginal people, indigenous people, and others in my riding is crucial.

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I would like to add a perfect example of what the parliamentary secretary just said about not being in accord with Bill C-17, which hopefully we will get passed soon and have this dealt with that way.

Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I am enjoying the speech, the treatise on western civilization and diamonds around the world, but we do not have diamond mines in the Yukon at the moment.

Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I am more excited about the member's speech than any others today, for several reasons. First, the member is absolutely right. I learned The Cremation of Sam McGee in grade 3. It is why I moved to Yukon and became chair of the Yukon Robert Service Society. I thank th

Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, my point of order also applies to other speakers. Basically, it is on relevance, and I know how you will rule.

Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, first of all on the uncertainty, that is what we are doing today: returning the certainty.
