Ethics  Mr. Speaker, let us try to sum up the Liberal ethical violations of just this past year. The Prime Minister breaks the law by taking a private helicopter to a billionaire's island, but who has not done that too? The finance minister secretly holds on to millions of dollars in s

Government Appointments  Mr. Speaker, I am beginning to suspect that the Prime Minister does not know what the words “open and transparent” actually mean. The law requires the Prime Minister to meaningfully consult with the other party leaders. What did the Liberals do? They sent us a “take it or leave i

Government Appointments  Mr. Speaker, he says “engaged”, but then he sends us a letter that says take it or leave it. New Democrats actually offered the Liberals a solution to this appointments mess, and it would actually help Liberals keep their campaign promise. Do members know what the Liberals did? T

Wet'suwet'en and Gitxsan  Mr. Speaker, it is with great pride and humility that I stand and pay tribute to the wisdom, courage, and determination of the Wet'suwet'en and Gitxsan leaders of northern British Columbia. Today, marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision known as Delgamu

Government Appointments  Mr. Speaker, officers of Parliament perform some of the most important roles in Canadian democracy. They run our elections, they police lobbying, and they enforce our ethical rules. The Liberals have completely botched the process of hiring these watchdogs. I do not know about ev

Access to Information Act  Mr. Speaker, I was asked by a colleague if that was a speech or a yelling contest. I think my friend is participating in a yelling contest. At that, he could win; we have no doubt. I am going to grant him that. He can yell louder and longer than most people I have ever met. With

Access to Information Act  No conspiracy. This is in legislation. This is in the bill that the Liberals just introduced. The Prime Minister and Liberals say they would like to give less access to information to Canadians, and Canadians will learn the experience of trying to access information that belongs

Access to Information Act  Mr. Speaker, that is one of the best questions I have ever had. I do not even know where to start. Let me add this, because I do not think we got to it. With regard to the notion of vexatious and bad faith, who determines it? The department holding the information gets to determ

Access to Information Act  Yes, say the Liberals. Oh, my, what delusional sense of history do the Liberals have? That only came to light because Mr. Leblanc from The Globe and Mail dug and dug into government information. He used a part of the Access to Information Act and asked for the documents between t

Access to Information Act  Mr. Speaker, I am sure the parliamentary secretary heard the question that was just offered to her. The Liberals wrote a bad bill. They did not consult with first nations, they did not consult with non-profit groups, and they did not consult with media groups, all of which use

Access to Information Act  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with my colleague from Victoria. “All-party co-operation” is what the Liberals call it. This is what happens to this bad piece of legislation, which the Information Commissioner said, unless it was fundamentally amended would be a regressio

Access to Information Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I think the French title of the Information Commissioner's report had something to do with a missed target. I have never before seen a watchdog of Parliament, an officer of Parliament, hold up government legislation, compare it

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, I am not sure he is listening, so let us try again. Let me repeat inside the House what I just said outside the House. According to Global News, regulatory filings show that William Morneau Sr. sold 200,000 shares in Morneau Shepell before December 3, 2015. Four days

Indian Act  Madam Speaker, there are a lot of conversations that go around the issue that ask when first nations are going to get their stuff together. My answer back to those folks is, “How about we work our side of the hyphen first between native and non-native relations”. When we still en

Indian Act  Madam Speaker, I do not claim any great expertise in parliamentary history as to where and when bills originate from and what the problems are. I will say this. There seems to have been a growing trend, particularly in the last Parliament, of clear government legislation being w
