Canada Revenue Agency  Mr. Speaker, for the past three years, the Liberals have been talking about how hard they are working to fight tax evasion and tax havens, but nothing has changed and everyone knows it is just a smokescreen. The Minister of National Revenue herself even accepted a donation from

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech, which was more insightful and had quite a bit more depth than the bill itself. What does she think about parliamentarians' responsibility to tell Canadians the truth? We must not take any intellectual shortcuts by telling half-tr

Customs Act  Madam Speaker, today, I am once again amazed at the Liberals' attitude. Once they took office, they did exactly the opposite of what they said they would when they were on this side of the House. That includes the Minister of Public Safety, who sat on this side of the House a few

Customs Act  Madam Speaker, as there seems to be a consensus, as my colleague claims, why exactly does the government find it necessary to move a time allocation motion to limit debate? With 30 minutes for questions and comments, 30 minutes for the ringing of the bells and 15 minutes for the

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, in early October, IPCC experts published an alarming report on the need to take immediate action to protect the environment. According to that report, it is not too late, but time is running out. Another study also found that, if every country were to do what Canada

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Richmond—Arthabaska, a riding not too far from Sherbrooke, for his contribution to the debate, even though we do not agree on much. When I spoke to this motion, I spoke about the threat of a carbon tax bogeyman that the Conservatives keep t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, we have to look at the whole picture. When carbon pricing is considered on its own, we can definitely arrive at the conclusion that it is not the only way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It must go hand in hand with other measures. There must be a more comprehens

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, that was a long lead-up to a pretty simple question. Yes, I recognize the importance of trade to the Canadian economy. What my colleague failed to mention or might tend to forget is that we can trade without having a trade agreement. He seems to think the two go ha

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, first, I would like to mention that I will be sharing my time with the member for Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie. Where to begin the debate on the Conservative motion, which covers so many areas? I can understand if some of the people watching us are a little lost, consi

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, thank you for your intervention. Indeed, there seem to be some conversations happening while we are trying to speak, which makes it difficult to understand one another. I was saying that the carbon tax is the Conservatives' bogeyman, which they like to trot out ever

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Madam Speaker, I am trying to follow the Conservatives' logic on natural resources development, especially in terms of natural resources transportation. Earlier, I asked a question about how this debate is being politicized. A Conservative member said it is vital for communities

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to respond to a comment my colleague made. At the beginning of his speech, he said—and I imagine he speaks on his party's behalf—that he did not want to politicize the debate on the transport, or even the export in some cases, of natural resources. How

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Madam Speaker, today, it is very clear that the Conservative members still do not think that natural resource projects are being carried out fast enough. They want all companies to have the power to move projects forward at all costs, regardless of the views of the communities a

Poverty Reduction Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to be able to ask my colleague a question about this important bill. However, I am disappointed that the government voted against Bill C-245 introduced by my colleague from Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot. Her bill proposed bringing in a national anti-poverty stra

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I do not know whether I should commend my colleague on his speech because he used the House's time to say nothing. Many of my colleagues on this side of the House would have liked to have had that time to talk about the bill. I am wondering whether the people of Még
