Judges Act Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. We can argue back and forth across the House. The government decided to prorogue Parliament. As for the Conservatives, they unfortunately delayed the passage of the bill. This is the third time we are debating this bill, an
Judges Act Madam Speaker, I thank the hon. member for the question. I very much believe in taking things one step at at time. There is nothing grandiose about this bill. It is important, essential, and will bring us up to date with the times. It is clear that a lot of other changes could b
Judges Act Madam Speaker, we are here today to again debate the Judges Act and the Criminal Code. Bill C-3 amends the Judges Act to restrict eligibility for judicial appointment to persons who undertake to participate in continuing education on matters related to sexual assault law and so

Judges Act Madam Speaker, my question is quite simple: Given the importance of this bill and the fact that all parties seem relatively in favour of it, does my esteemed colleague believe it would be important for the vote to be unanimous or at least very strong?

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply Mr. Speaker, I found the speech by my colleague from Kingston and the Islands unsettling. He tried to justify the throne speech's unjustifiable interference in matters under provincial jurisdiction. My colleagues and I consider that interference unacceptable. It is annoying, inap

Citizenship Act Madam Speaker, I commend my colleague for her clear and precise speech. Bill C-6 seeks to enshrine aboriginal and treaty rights in law. I get the impression that everyone agrees with that. As a Bloc member, why did my colleague not focus on the Quebec nation in her speech?
