Controlled Drugs and Substances Act  I was standing. She did not look, but I was standing and ready to go.

Controlled Drugs and Substances Act  Madam Speaker, since I only have a couple of minutes, I will cut to the main part of what I was going to discuss. First is a reminder that we are not debating Bill C-45. We are debating something completely different. It was disappointing that so much of the debate seemed to be

Employment Insurance  Madam Speaker, while I always listen to my colleague eagerly when we are having these discussions, at the beginning of her statement she said that she was going to tell us all about the service improvements at the CRA. She certainly had my attention there, and I thought I might h

Employment Insurance  Madam Speaker, I rise tonight to again talk about a question that came up last November. In November, I had asked the Minister of National Revenue about her mandate to provide a more client-focused Canada Revenue Agency. I pointed out then that under her watch, her department h

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, the member for Oshawa makes some excellent points. Importing 700,000 barrels a day at world prices while we are sending oil into the United States at $20 a barrel less than the same oil they are then transferring north is crazy. I hope it might be helpful to some o

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, this is an argument usually used by opponents of the industry who say that they are not really totally opposed to the whole industry and shutting it down, but could we not defy the market and build infrastructure to process our product rather than export it raw? If w

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, there was a whole lot in that question. I will start with the last point and state that in my riding, what men and women want most is economic security through a job. They feel that their livelihoods are threatened by the government's agenda, in particular in the res

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, I did not get a chance in the limited time we had earlier to answer some of the previous questions. The question about pay equity or the issue of gender equality in the workplace and in pay is surely going to be best addressed through a strong economy. The way this b

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour to rise in this place, even during difficult times such as today when it is with somewhat of a heavy heart one rises after the tributes we heard on the terrible tragedy in Saskatchewan. It is also sometimes difficult to rise in trying times su

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary's response tonight was full of promise and an acknowledgement of the shortcomings identified by the Auditor General. Unfortunately, it contained no evidence that there has been any improvement in service or any fulfillment of the Liberals'

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to rise this evening to continue where I left off in November 2017, on my question about the call centre. I asked the minister about the CRA and its notoriously difficult call centre. A scathing report by the Auditor General pointed out that 64% o

Canada Revenue Agency  Mr. Speaker, it is that time of year; it is tax season. While few Canadians relish the process of filing their taxes, almost all Canadians know it is their responsibility to do so accurately and on time. The problem is that accountants from across Canada say that under the revenu

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, given the foregoing comments, I will take this opportunity to ask the member a question related to the motion. Does he think it is reasonable to refuse and to block the testimony of Mr. Jean at the committee for public safety, when that public servant was used by t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order and I am sorry to have to do this again. Just before question period I raised the issue of relevance. While the member has raised many important and I am sure interesting points, he has yet to address the motion. I understand the latitude

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order, I know that the time is almost up before we have to break for question period, but we are about five minutes into the member's speech and he has not addressed the motion yet. I know there is a lot of latitude around relevance, but perhaps when we
