Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, that is an important question. Mr. Snowshoe's case is absolutely disgusting.

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, it is actually written right into the bill. This is not something that is a regulation that can be changed if another government comes to power.

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, under the Conservative regime, they started mixing prisoners who should not have been mixed together. That created a very dangerous situation.

Canada Labour Code  Madam Speaker, the issues surrounding committees, for instance, are very important. In a workplace that is too small, under 20 employees, these things obviously need to be handled with a great deal of delicacy to ensure that everyone's privacy is taken into consideration. There h

Global Warming  Madam Speaker, incredibly, in Manitoba, the government had been in place for 17 years before the Conservatives came to power. I think at that point it had been an NDP government that had run out of steam, its members were fighting among themselves, and it was time for a change. I
