Taxation  Mr. Speaker, once again a Liberal government policy is causing unnecessary financial stress to taxpayers. Daryl is a pensioner in my riding who relies on the GST credit to make ends meet. He filed his taxes on time, yet received a letter from CRA stating he now has to repay the

Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, there is another medical crisis happening at the same time as the COVID-19 pandemic. It is made far worse by the pandemic in major cities such as Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto, and in small towns and indigenous communities. I am talking about the opioid crisis. In

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the member for Calgary Centre. The opioid crisis continues to spiral out of control, with 170 deaths in the month of May alone in British Columbia.

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Mr. Speaker, a month ago, in this committee, I raised the issue of Canada summer job applicants who have been denied.

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Mr. Speaker, with the alarming rise in new COVID cases in the U.S., people in my riding, which is not far from the border, are worried about the abuse of border loopholes.

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, I am anticipating that the Conservative Party will be supporting the bill, but there is a lot of concern with the dithering of the Liberal government.

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I was an MLA for eight years prior to being elected, and today was the first time, as I was telling my colleague who was sitting next to me, that I have been involved in heckling. I was just so infuriated with what I am seeing, with how the Liberals are using indig

Government Priorities  Mr. Speaker, Canada has grounded to a halt because of a weak Prime Minister. The Liberals are kowtowing to a few radical protesters. They are paralyzed.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I would like to make a point regarding the statement that was just made about how rare it is for crimes to be committed during parole and how things are getting better.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, one challenge is that we believe this needs to go beyond the Parole Board examining the Parole Board. There needs to be outside examination by the committee so we can look at what led to this. I would like to bring up a couple of points. The first is the watering d

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is important because lives are at stake. There needs to be a real evaluation of our Parole Board and how criminals are being released oftentimes way ahead of even what the judges have said is not only a minimum sentence, but the minimum time before parole. Therefo

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, why is it that tragic crimes keep happening with criminals on parole? Madam Levesque has paid with her life. What is going on that we are putting our public at risk? Perhaps it is because of the changes the government made to the Parole Board in 2017. It is not just
