Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act  Madam Speaker, that is a good question. I thank the minister for asking it. Here is my answer. How do we judge whether parents, who are acting out of love for their children, have everything they need based on their situation? It seems to me that we should give everyone the opp

Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act  Madam Speaker, anything is possible after 25 years. As I said, I worked in the forestry industry for seven years. For 44 hours a week, there were three shifts, including a night shift, so day care centres that are open non-standard hours do exist. I would ask members not to get

Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act  That is a very good question, Madam Speaker. Studies have indeed shown that, when education is at the heart of a community, then health care prevention is possible. When individuals are fortunate enough to be informed, to feel safe and to be educated, it has a direct impact on

Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act  Madam Speaker, my wish for my colleagues is that 2023 is a bit different than these past few years. A few minutes ago, I heard my colleague ask if we could encourage people to get into politics and set aside partisan rhetoric on the thousands of files before us. Today I have

Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act  Madam Speaker, in Quebec, we call them centres de la petite enfance, or CPEs. This has allowed parents, like me for that matter, to not have to make the agonizing choice of deciding which parent should stay home to educate and prepare children for school based on family income.

Official Languages  Mr. Speaker, only 57% of the Commissioner of Official Languages' recommendations were implemented this year. That is only half. The worst offender with respect to the French language is not Air Canada, it is the federal government itself. How many recommendations has Transport Ca

Immigration and Refugee Protection Act  Mr. Speaker, we are happy that the holiday season is approaching. There are a few days left before we rise. My colleague opposite will have enough time to ask a question because I will be brief. I appreciate my colleague's speech. I am sad to hear that she did not get an answer

Immigration and Refugee Protection Act  Mr. Speaker, earlier, I asked my colleague a question. I wanted to know why the government had waited so long, given the importance of this bill not only for identifying terrorist groups, but also for ensuring the safety of refugees. I will ask my other colleague the same questi

Immigration and Refugee Protection Act  Mr. Speaker, the Bloc Québécois agrees. We also want to ensure that we have everything in our possession to guarantee that our refugees are protected. Earlier I heard my colleague talk about the fact that the government is behind the curve. That is true not just in defence, but

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for the question. However, for the people watching, I would like to point out that decades ago, 50% of the tax dollars collected by Ottawa were transferred for health care. There was never any question as to whether the provinces were able to

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, as I said earlier, this is just a rehash of the budget, but it took a pandemic for the government to say that high-speed Internet is an essential service. Now, when we talk about public safety, the government points out that there is broadband, but if there is no

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I am not a tax expert or an economist, but what I do know is that we need to listen to scientists, to those who are recommending measures to offset this inflation. We saw it with the key rate, which continues to rise, even th

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I will begin my remarks with a short aside about Sainte‑Adèle, a municipality in my riding. On Friday, a terrible fire destroyed the Hôtel Mont Gabriel, which is a Laurentides—Labelle institution. The hotel has been perched on the summit of Mont Gabriel since 1936.

Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, it is a beautiful Monday morning, particularly since we are talking about a bill that will likely make things easier for people who, unfortunately, did not give their consent or whose personal information was compromised.

Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I commend my colleague. I sat with her on the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics for a few months. We had concerns about privacy. Several recommendations were made, and that is why Bill C‑11 became Bill C‑27. I acknowledge that the bil
