One Seed Project  Mr. Speaker, I want to give a shout-out to Lambton College for its Enactus project, the One Seed project, which just won first place globally. The students in this project have lifted 330,000 people in Zambia out of poverty. By training 75,000 farmers in no-till farming methods,

Standing Committee on Health  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise in the House today to speak to Motion No. 206. I will begin by reading the motion: That the Standing Committee on Health be instructed to undertake a study on the level of fitness and physical activity of youth in Canada and provide recommenda

Standing Committee on Health  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member opposite for bringing forward this motion on physical fitness. It is a very worthy motion. I am not sure why the member did not just suggest to one of the Liberal members on the health committee that we should do the study, because w

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, we should have a fair and legal immigration process. I want to clearly state that I am opposed to people who hate people on the basis of race, religion, colour or any of these things. These extremist groups certainly do not represent the views of our party or my pers

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, as a point of information for the parliamentary secretary to the government House leader, the sign at Roxham Road says “illegal” and that is why the phrase of “illegal immigrants” is appropriate. His point is well taken. There have been a number of people who have

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, when it comes to immigration, we have a fair and legal immigration process. We want to have people come to Canada who will help us fill those economic skill gaps, who will be reunited with their families, who will be people on whom we take compassion, rescuing them f

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, I am totally offended by the accusation that member has made. It is really insulting. Even though I find his attitude offensive, I grant him the privilege of freedom of speech. I am listening to the advice of people who are in the know. The former justice minister a

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, this will probably be one of the last times I rise to speak in this building, as we are moving to West Block in the new year. Like many fellow members, I have been reflecting on this place, its beauty and history. I do not know the route the Usher of the Black Rod wi

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, when Bill C-21 was first tabled in June of 2016, the relationship we had with the United States was a very close one, so sharing data made sense at that time. I am increasingly concerned about the tariffs the U.S. has put on us, claiming national security issues. I

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my hon. colleague for her reflections on the many important things that have happened over the last 15 years. It is important for government, when there is a plethora of important things to address, to actually pick the things that are important

Opioid Crisis in Canada  Mr. Chair, I fully agree that more needs to be done and we need to listen to one another. Would the member comment on the government's priority when it has offered $600 million to buy the media in an election and $230 million to address the opioid crisis?

Opioid Crisis in Canada  Mr. Chair, one of the really important things is to make sure there is public education about the harms from these drugs and the fact that one can take them once and die. It is the government's duty to inform. There has been no education about the harms of the opioid crisis that

Opioid Crisis in Canada  Mr. Chair, one of the areas we have not talked about tonight has been the grief supports that families of people who have died from the opioid crisis need. I am an advocate for palliative care, which has created a lot of grief support across the country. However, that support is

Opioid Crisis in Canada  Madam Chair, my question for the member is this. This is a huge priority. We see the Prime Minister tweeting out $50 million here and there. There have been $250 million pledged to the opioid crisis, but probably only $50 million has been spent to date. Will the government increa

Opioid Crisis in Canada  Madam Chair, the member brings up a very good point. There were shortages of naloxone. There are chronic drug shortages under the current Liberal government. The Liberals need to get a plan to address that. Their plan of having a website where they list them is not helpful at all
