Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, I have the honour of serving on the environment committee, and the testimony we are hearing about Bill C-69, the new impact assessment act, is truly horrifying, and I use the word advisedly. My colleague across the way had a rosy comment about Canada's economy. That

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, what a ridiculous answer. Last week, the environment minister refused to answer a very simple question at committee, so I will give her another chance. It is a truism that environmental programs should have specific and measurable outcomes. We know how much scrub

The Budget  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Quebec for his usual excellent speech, in which he elucidated in great detail the problems with this Liberal government. I was interested to hear the parliamentary secretary's question. He is a typical Liberal. They think gove

Fisheries Act  Madam Speaker, coming from the Prairies, I feel very inadequate discussing marine fisheries. I would like to focus on the minister's comments about codes of practice. I like codes of practice a lot. As a regional fisheries biologist up at The Pas, I saw some horrific examples o

Fisheries Act  Madam Speaker, it is a great pleasure to stand in the House and speak about the new Fisheries Act. I have had numerous interactions with the minister over my time in Parliament and I know his heart is in the right place. I do have some issues with the new Fisheries Act, however.

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals' proposed changes to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act will saddle job-creating resource development projects with unnecessary red tape, bureaucratic hurdles, political interference, and complex processes before these projects can proceed. In fac
