Petitions  Mr. Speaker, this petition was presented to me by a lady named Anita Payne, who ran against me for the Green Party. She has continued to work hard with both myself and the provincial member, who she also ran against, on behalf of climate change issues. I want to congratulate her

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-71  Mr. Speaker, I have to admit that I anticipated a Liberal getting up to ask a question, but seeing as it is me, my congratulations to my colleague on his well-formulated remarks. I would ask an obvious question. When he compares what the Liberals are doing by focusing on the rig

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-71  Madam Speaker, I have been here for 17 and a half years. I was elected along with my colleague from Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke in 2000, and we were the only two non-Liberals at the time. I think there is an element of my colleague's comments that ought to be listened to very care

Elections Modernization Act  Madam Speaker, the minister, quite correctly, points out that we have discussed the CEO's report and recommendations at committee. However, let us be clear about this: this is a bill that is 300-odd pages long, and while a substantial portion of it is those recommendations, a ve

Elections Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, I respect my colleague from the Liberal benches. I think he has intelligent and unconventional ideas, but I wonder if in this case, I could take the opportunity to disagree with him and to encourage my friend from the New Democrats to share my disagreement here. Ju

Elections Modernization Act  That is a good question, Mr. Speaker. The reference of course is to the very long campaign that took place in 2015. In general terms, it is advantageous to have as little discretion as possible with the length of a campaign, particularly as we now have moved to fixed election d

Elections Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, there has been a tendency on the part of the current government, which it has happened so often that I find it hard to believe it is not a deliberate pattern of behaviour, of not introducing important legislation for a considerable length of time, and then when it is

Elections Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, I apologize for having to ask about the time I had available to me a few minutes ago. We switched between two different items, and I was not sure whether I had 10 minutes or 20 minutes. I have since confirmed with the table, and I see you signalling as well, that it

Committees of the House  moved that the 23rd report of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs, presented on Monday, March 6, 2017, be concurred in. Mr. Speaker, just to be clear, I have been away for a week. I believe I have 10 minutes at this point. Is that the speaking slot, or is it 20

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, then I will be twice as eloquent. If we multiply that by the longer length of time, we may well find four times the benefit that we would have had if I had had only 10 minutes to speak. Let me start by welcoming the minister to the House. I see her here today. If I

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, there have been consultations, and I hope you will find unanimous consent for the following: “That, notwithstanding any standing order or usual practice of the House, in keeping with wide support for the notion that debate ought not to be curtailed for bills aimed at

Gord Brown  Mr. Speaker, here are six things you might not know about our friend and colleague, Gord Brown. Number one, Gord was so Conservative, he often wore blue shoes in the Commons. True story. They looked pretty sharp, too. Number two, Gord's oldest son, Chance, was born in November

Captain Roy Brown  Mr. Speaker, this Saturday will mark the centenary of the most famous aerial combat of all time, in which Canadian pilot Captain Roy Brown shot down Manfred von Richthofen, Germany's illustrious Red Baron. In so doing, Brown ended the career of the deadliest flying ace of the war

House debate  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order. It is, of course, entirely appropriate when we have proceedings that go on for the better part of a day and possibly, eventually, more than a day, to relax the rules about what people bring into the House to eat and so on. I remember that you ch
