Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I did not hear the hon. member, in his speech, talk about the increasing cost of housing and how difficult it is for people to be able to afford that.

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I would imagine $1 million a day is pretty excessive. Grocers can talk about it being about the supply chain and so on, yet the amount of money they are making, is $1 million in profits a day.

Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, one of the concerns I have with the bill is again with respect to companies having too many rights and too much power within this.
