Hon. Jim Carr  Mr. Speaker, “I am encouraged, excited and optimistic about how we can strengthen our federation in ways we have strived to achieve as a nation for decades.” These were words from the speech delivered just this year on his private member's bill. Jim was a nation builder and a gen

Committees of the House  Madam Speaker, I certainly enjoyed my time on the foreign affairs committee working with my colleague.

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I wonder if the member could answer a question for me. The Parliamentary Budget Officer identified $14.2 billion in what he called unannounced spending in the fall economic statement. Can the member tell us what it will be spent on before we vote to approve it?

The Economy  Mr. Speaker, the Liberal government says that inflation in Canada is not its fault. Blowing up people's mortgage payments is not its fault. High interest rates are not its fault. If one cannot afford gas, groceries or home heating, it is not its fault either. However, now we know

Copyright Act  Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise today to speak to Bill C-294, the unlocking innovation act. I was delighted to hear from the member for Winnipeg North just a few moments ago that the Liberal members will be supporting this very important piece of legislation introduced by my

The Economy  Mr. Speaker, the reality is that 40% of spending that took place during the pandemic, according to the government's own appointed Parliamentary Budget Officer, had absolutely zero to do with the pandemic. The member's response is cold comfort for those who cannot afford to heat t

Finance  Mr. Speaker, since 2015, the Prime Minister has doubled our national debt to $1.2 trillion. Over $100 billion of that was even prior to the pandemic. He has incurred more debt than all other prime ministers combined. Just yesterday, the Governor of the Bank of Canada told me that

Extension of Sitting Hours and Conduct of Extended Proceedings  Madam Speaker, I would like to read this into the record. This is section 48 of the Constitution Act, 1867.

Extension of Sitting Hours and Conduct of Extended Proceedings  Madam Speaker, I have a very serious question. I believe our colleague across the way is an hon. member of the House.

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, unfortunately I have bad news for the member. The fall economic statement is going to make things far worse for seniors in his riding and all of our ridings. The reason is that the government spent $500 billion in a very short period of time and printed a lot of th

Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2022  Madam Speaker, I will agree with my colleague on one thing, which is that so many things are broken. It seems like the government could not create a program that it could not bungle so badly. Canadians cannot get passports. They cannot get through to the CRA. The worst is the i
