Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, like my colleague opposite, the member for Winnipeg North, I want to add to my colleague's speech. I, too, have some touching stories that are often hard to talk about because it is such an emotional subject. I want to congratulate my colleague for her very poignant

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank the minister for her speech. We all know that this is a sensitive topic. Some believe it should be debated longer so that we have the time to discuss it more thoroughly. Others believe that we need to move more quickly because people are waiting for us to le

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I join my colleague opposite in thanking and congratulating the member for sharing that touching story. It really makes us think. I want to point out that there is a difference between suicide and suicidal tendencies and what someone suffering from a serious, irr

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the question that is always swirling around in my mind is why, if it has nothing to hide, is the government not being open and transparent? The government keeps repeating that it does not want to trigger an election and the opposition, with this motion, is forcing t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, there is a very simple principle: when a person has nothing to hide, they generally do not hesitate to open their books or disclose information. When a person has nothing to hide, they let others check the evidence. That is not what is happening here. The government

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, this is a particularly meaningful day to talk about this sensitive issue. Yesterday, October 18, marked the first anniversary of the passing of my aunt Claire, who chose to access medical assistance in dying. She was not looking to end her life, but she simply want

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I congratulate our dear colleague for her outstanding and sensitive speech. Listening to her speech, I remembered that she is the youngest MP in the House. I found her comments to be very constructive, and I think everyone will agree with me. I would like to ask

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I am about to side with the Conservatives. This is a big day. In his speech, my colleague said that the Conservatives are not team players. He accused them of refusing to work as a team. That makes me wonder. Does my colleague think teamwork means encroaching on

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I want to thank my colleague for her fine speech. I heard her talk about what she and her team have done for people during the pandemic. It seems to me that if we all did our jobs properly, what she has described likely represents what the other 337 members of the

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I commend my colleague on his speech. I must say that I found certain parts of it rather entertaining, particularly when he talked about the gains his party made over the past few months by supposedly improving various programs. In his speech, he talked about art

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her excellent speech. I found it admirable that she managed to split her speech into parts of the throne speech she liked and parts she did not. Mind you, one section was slightly longer and more detailed than the other. She briefly touched

COVID-19 Emergency Measures  Mr. Speaker, COVID-19 has hurt the cultural sector more than most. The sector was just coming back to life when people were told to shut down again. This year is a write-off for festivals and events. Our artists are in lockdown again. They are worried. Quebec has announced measu

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I want to thank my colleague from Calgary Centre for his very thoughtful and well-documented speech. Whenever the Conservative Party gets a new leader, the wooing of Quebec begins. It is usually a brief dalliance, but we will make the most of it before the passion

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I must agree that the government's approach often boils down to, “We know what to do, we will tell you how to do it, and we will give you money only on certain conditions”. Since the throne speech, I keep hearing the government say that it wants to work together,

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, during my colleague's speech, I asked my colleague from Jonquière which is emptier: a vacuum or a void. We still have not found the answer. I mean no offence to my colleague, but this is how I have been feeling every time I hear a Liberal's speech. Was the throne
