Broadcasting Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie for his question. I think there are a lot of surprises and new things that we will have to deal with with the arrival and invasion of digital technologies. As I mentioned in my speech, I think we need to proceed

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, last night on the TV show Tout le monde en parle, the Minister of Canadian Heritage said that he was optimistic that web giants would be subject to GST in the next budget. It is not optimism he needs; it is a bit of initiative. The minister does not need to wait for

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague opposite for his speech. When it comes to the indigenous file, I have the impression that the Liberal government tends to take symbolic rather than concrete action. It often drags its feet when it is time to take concrete action. Examples that
