Canada's Oil and Gas Sector  Mr. Speaker, I listened with interest to the speech from the member for Calgary Centre. I cannot believe how he can actually stand behind the Prime Minister, who has failed this country so badly with regard to Canada's energy resources and Alberta's energy resources, in particula

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, my colleague from Langley—Aldergrove asked where the money is coming from. It is plain and simple where. It is coming from future Canadians, but they do not realize it yet, unfortunately. We cannot continue to wrack up deficit after deficit after deficit. I came fr

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, deficits arose with the great global recession of 2007-09. We were forced into running deficits to keep Canadians working. In fact, when we were running those deficits, it was the Liberals who kept screaming, from this side of the House at that time. They wanted bigg

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the biggest reason we have had to deal with deficits is that we have taken over from Liberal governments that have spent the cupboards absolutely bare. We come back in when the economy has changed and business investment has left the country because of the tax situat

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise today to speak to Bill C-86, the budget implementation act.

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, when the member was knocking on those doors, did he mention that the government would pass on a debt to every many, woman and child in his riding of at least $600 per year? If he even mentioned that to them, what sort of reaction might the member have gotten? It

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, I rise today again on time allocation called on a budget bill of over 800 pages. Should we be surprised by this? Unfortunately, no. We have a government that promised not to introduce omnibus bills, yet we have a bill that is almost 900 pages long. The Liberals c

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I rise today to strongly oppose this time allocation, this time limit on this bill. The minister is boasting about how there has been so much consultation and time allowed already. She talked about seven hours of debate. With over 300 members in this chamber, that

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise today to speak to Bill C-84. I would first like to mention that I will be sharing my time with the member for Markham—Unionville. Bill C-84 seems to be another example of the government striking a valiant attempt to make a change, yet it is a

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I have some serious questions about this legislation. It is going in the right direction but I do not believe it has been completely thought out. Part of my concern is over the definition of bestiality, where it says that it means any contact for sexual purposes wi

Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities  Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to get up to speak to this motion by the member for Fort McMurray—Cold Lake.

Bob Spiers  Mr. Speaker, as we approach municipal and regional elections in the North Okanagan Shuswap, this month there will be one name missing from the ballot in Vernon. Through three elections in 10 years, the name Bob Spiers was a popular choice of the voters in Vernon. I had the plea

Justice  Mr. Speaker, it is a bit awkward for me to stand to speak to a divorce bill, having enjoyed almost 40 years of a very happy marriage. Although we have had a very happy marriage, we also have a number of friends who have gone through uncomfortable divorces. One thing that comes

Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, a couple of things I have noticed in the debate today is that there is all kinds of talk about punishment or penalties for non-compliance. About two weeks ago I met with a group in my riding, the Independent Living Vernon. It has been helping people with accessibil
