Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, specific details relating to budgetary costs of Bill C-83 and the changes that it will bring about I believe will be announced soon, as my colleague knows.

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, the hon. member quite rightly raises the issue of indigenous incarceration. I had the honour of serving on the public safety and national security committee last year, which studied that very issue. I am sure she is aware of this, but I would ask the hon. member to a

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to speak today in support of Bill C-83. Among other measures, the bill proposes to eliminate segregation from federal correctional institutions, and would do it in a way that protects the security of correctional institutions. The reali

Infrastructure  Mr. Speaker, for too long, our country's trade with the United States through the Detroit-Windsor corridor has been limited by a lack of capacity. With only one bridge, which is privately owned, the flow of people and goods has not been as efficient as it could and should be. My

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, I would invite the member to look at the blues of the proceedings of the committee on public safety in which two things happened. The MP for Red Deer—Lacombe, who spoke earlier tonight, is a member of the committee. He said outright at committee, “everybody at this

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, I listened with interest to the hon. member talk about his understanding of the bill. I have before me a quote from a gun vendor, an actual business person who has talked about the bill and his understanding of it. How does the hon. member feel about this interpretat

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, the hon. member mentioned, implied, in fact, that individuals should not be held accountable for the acts they carried out when they were 18 years old. He referenced a specific age. What if an individual happened to commit an act of violence, say domestic abuse again

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, what we should not shy away from in this House is telling the people of Canada how we feel about climate change. I have a simple two-part question for the member. First, how does he feel about climate change? Does he believe that it is actually happening? Is the pla

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the hon. member is a member of a party that apparently champions the needs, interests, and concerns of the working class.

Customs Act  Madam Speaker, the member makes a very good point. I have the privilege of working with him at the public safety committee. He brings a great deal of insight to that committee because of what he did in his previous life, if I can put it that way. As I said, this puts us in line
