Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Prime Minister said in this House that he will not play politics when it comes to the safe third country agreement.

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, one of the concerns one of the members brought up earlier was about having two young people together, one who is of age and one who is very close but not quite there, and the criminal record they could get for making the mistake of passing a joint. I wonder if you

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, what an interesting question from the member across the way. I first want to point out that the Alberta NDP is doing some of the most amazing work across this country on climate change.

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is more concerned with looking like a global climate leader to the other G7 leaders than with actually being one here at home. Instead of eliminating subsidies for fossil fuels, the Prime Minister will now spend over $10 billion to build a new pipe

National Security Act, 2017  Mr. Speaker, I want to acknowledge that I also spend time with the member on the NATO Parliamentary Assembly.
