Strengthening Motor Vehicle Safety for Canadians Act  Mr. Speaker, I have had the opportunity to work the member opposite as well on the same committee I referenced previously. Simple questions are best, although without having the Auditor General's report in front of me at the moment, it does make it a bit more difficult to answe

Strengthening Motor Vehicle Safety for Canadians Act  Mr. Speaker, I always enjoy participating in debates with someone who knows my backyard so well. Unfortunately, not being part of the government, this is an area where I do not have the information the member is seeking, and I am not afraid to admit that. The bill was sponsored

Strengthening Motor Vehicle Safety for Canadians Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the hon. member's kind remarks and her thoughtful deliberations, both in our shared committee assignment and in the House.

Strengthening Motor Vehicle Safety for Canadians Act  Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to rise to offer a few remarks on Bill S-2, an act to amend the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Before I begin, I was under the impression I would have 20 minutes, so I will give the Coles Notes version of a longer speech. Before I get too deep into th

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, before I address the question, I would like to say, to the extent you heard shouting, I heard some friendly conversation back and forth. To answer the question from the member for Courtenay—Alberni, and I enjoy his passion for this issue, the forestry sector is stra

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thought it ironic that we are painted on the one hand as loving quoting these CEOs but on the other hand of taxing them too much, to the point that they are furious with us. I think the truth lies somewhere in between. The fact is that we are trying to adopt policy

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure, as always, to rise in the House to contribute to the discourse on what may be the most important issue facing my constituents, and that is the Canadian economy.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, this House unanimously passed a motion from my colleague, the member for Fundy Royal, to study Atlantic immigration and the retention of newcomers.

House debate  Madam Speaker, as I mentioned, there has been a shift in attitude since we have come into government that recognizes the potential in Atlantic Canada. This has been put into action through the Atlantic growth strategy that was formed after the feedback from 32 Atlantic Liberal M

House debate  Madam Speaker, I appreciate the member's question and I congratulate him on his participation in a hard-fought leadership race for the official opposition. I would like to say that perhaps this is my optimism or naïveté as a young member of Parliament from Atlantic Canada, but I

House debate  Madam Speaker, on the issue of time allocation, I find this a difficult issue to take seriously at times because of what I have watched go on in this chamber over the course of the last few months. Again, perhaps this is out of a bit of naïveté, but I did not expect to come here
