Department of Health Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for Lac-Saint-Louis for his lifelong dedication to greater government action to protect our water, including safe drinking water.

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, it is always a pleasure to work with my colleague. I have previously worked with him on committees. It is important that, as a member of the OECD , we take seriously the work that is done in that forum. For example, the OECD recently did a report on all the countrie

Public Safety  Mr. Speaker, this is personal, not just for me but for all Canadians who speak up for the protection of their communities' health and environment. In the 1980s, Canadians were called “unAlbertan” for protesting a dam. The utilities board was later shut down when it was discover

Public Safety  Mr. Speaker, yesterday, the Prime Minister claimed that he believes in the rights of all Canadians to peacefully protest, and yet proceedings before the Federal Court this week suggest the contrary. It has been revealed that CSIS is treating environmental activists as a threat to

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, on capacity, here is a simple example. There is a partnership between the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and a construction company in the capital city region where they are giving low-income Edmontonians living in affordable housing an opportunity to trai

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to hear that at least the member is interested in the federal government encouraging more energy efficiency, but why the heck has it not restored the eco-energy retrofit program? I know every home in my riding would welcome the infusion of dollars so the

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to share with the House that, yet again, View Magazine in Edmonton has chosen me to be its favourite member of Parliament in Edmonton. It is a great honour and I am humbled by it. I will be splitting my time with the member for Essex. I too will speak

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, when is a right to a housing framework not a right to housing when it is a framework? Contrary to what the member alleged in the House, it is simply not fact. This is what Leilani Farha, the United Nations Special Rapporteur, actually said: ...it is impossible to

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I need not remind this place that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on housing, Leilani Farha, called upon the government to finally act on its commitments to provide the right to housing.

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like ask the hon. member the same question I previously asked the member for Edmonton Centre.

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to raise a question about what is not in this deal. This deal looks like it was maybe drafted in the 1990s. There is no mention of climate action and no mention of sustainable development. It contains very dated environmental measures. It completely dero
