Canada Revenue Agency  What rubbish, Mr. Speaker. No charges have been laid. When regular people claim something on their taxes, they are given only 90 days to prove that it is a legal claim. It has been two years since the Panama papers revealed that many of the richest people in Canada had been stash

Leader of the New Democratic Party  Mr. Speaker, over this holiday season, Jagmeet Singh will be knocking on doors throughout Burnaby South. I hope the Prime Minister will stop playing games with the by-election and allow voters to choose their representative. Jagmeet Singh has a very compelling family story. He

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, two weeks ago, the finance minister stated that Trans Mountain was earning money, $200 million annualized. This week, CDEV reported the scandalous truth: Canadians will be losing over $50 million this year alone on Trans Mountain. That is in addition to $4.5 billion

The Economy  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister truly does not seem to care about the impact of his policies. The reality is that the price of food in Canada will go up 3.5% next year, with the annual food costs of the average family going up by $411. If people are on a fixed income or working f

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I get what my colleague is doing; I do. This is a massive omnibus bill. I have illustrated that myself in the House. The reality is that the government's steamroller approach will give very few MPs the chance to speak to this bill. I know that NDP members have a lot

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the member will not like the answer, so he may get up on another point of order. Over 10 years, the Harper regime did nothing about the web giants as they came into our communities, Facebook and Google, and sucked up advertising revenue. In my communities of Burnab

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, by far, that is the best question I have received today. It is a question of substance. The green energy, or clean energy, market in the United States is exploding. As the member knows, it is estimated by building trades to quadruple over the next decade. Yet, we ha

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, all members of Parliament had to battle Paul Calandra under the Harper regime, who would say things that simply were not true. It got to the point that it was an embarrassment to—

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, Paul Calandra did exactly that kind of thing every time it was pointed out he was simply wrong. The member for Vancouver Kingsway showed the member for Spadina—Fort York the platform this week, so he has the figures right in front of him. He knows it was a $3-billio

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, my point was that Paul Calandra was used as an enforcer on the floor of the House of Commons. The member for Spadina—Fort York is doing exactly the same thing. The reality is that putting things forward that members know are not accurate information is not somethin

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I am very disappointed to rise in the House to speak to Bill C-86. I think the disappointment I feel about the promise of the government in 2015 versus what it has delivered recently is felt acutely by many Canadians. Hopes were high in 2015 that things would change.

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, my colleague would be surprised to know that I do not agree with all of his speech, although I very much agree with some of what he said. However, I agree with the amendment he has brought forward. This was discussed at committee, and like every other amendment brou

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, we heard just a few moments ago that the priority for the government was eliminating mandatory minimums. I remind the member that Liberals have now been in power for well over three years. With the idea that they get around to things or that something is a priority

Automotive Industry  Mr. Speaker, yesterday the industry minister said in the House, “read my lips”. The people of Oshawa have been reading those lips all week and what they see is a Liberal government that will do nothing to save their jobs. The Prime Minister is throwing away another $14 billion

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Madam Speaker, I would like to start off by congratulating the member for Saanich—Gulf Islands on her engagement.
