Carbon Pricing  Madam Speaker, today is the Prime Minister's last opportunity to walk back his April Fool's joke, the carbon tax hike. Canadians are struggling, but the Bloc Québécois wants to drastically increase the carbon tax, which will drive up the cost of gas by 20¢ a litre and have a mas

Government Priorities  Mr. Speaker, the Bloc Québécois is keeping the Prime Minister in power even though he broke our immigration system, raised taxes and doubled the national debt.

Housing  Mr. Speaker, that answer proves just how out of touch and asleep at the switch this government is. It needs to get out of the way so municipalities can build affordable housing, just as Victoriaville, Saguenay and Trois-Rivières have done. The community organization Le Bercail h

Housing  Mr. Speaker, after eight years under this government, the price of homes has doubled, rent has doubled and this government is not worth the cost. A homeless shelter, the Bercail, in Saint‑George in Beauce, says that it is overwhelmed by requests for rooms in 2024. The government

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, this new regulation on single-use plastics will indeed have a very significant and negative impact on Quebec consumers.
