Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, taken to its logical extreme, the hon. member would have us address legislation one section at a time, which is not reasonable. If I actually look at the things I am staring at that are included in this bill, there is challenging a person to a duel, fraudulently pret

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I listened intently to much of the debate around omnibus bills. One of the things I would like to clarify is that “omnibus”, in and of itself, should not be a swear word in this House. There are many times that a certain piece of legislation will seek to amend differ

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, there are many great things about democracy in Canada, but one of our flaws I find is partisanship. Good ideas and good people come from different parties all the time. Our process sometimes helps those good ideas come to the fore, no matter which party they come f

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the hon. member for Niagara Centre. Bill C-51 deals with certain revisions to our Criminal Code that would impact our charter. These are two extraordinarily important laws in our country that have a direct impact on the lives of Canad

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, just before I pose my question, a comment was made earlier about my hon. colleague waving his arms on occasion. When he spends as much time in the chamber as this member does, there is very little time for exercise. I know where he comes from. I do want to ask somet

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I enjoyed the very legalistic approach taken in my hon. colleague's remarks. I come from a similar professional background and a similar vintage as the hon. member. However, one of the things I have been privileged to do since I arrived in this place is to serve on

Carlton Munroe  Mr. Speaker, Pictou County lost its local music guru and Tragically Hip super fan Carlton Munroe after his battle with glioblastoma, the same illness that claimed the life of his music hero Gord Downie. Carlton was a dedicated family man, a bright light on the east coast music s

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I would like to remind the member opposite that it would have been Stephen Harper, had he not run a campaign based on fear and division, that would have ended up paying $40 million to lose a lawsuit.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, before I answer the meat of the question, the hon. member across the aisle began his remarks with a comment about division. This motion is an exercise in divisive politics, if ever I have seen one. This is about dividing Canadians, not based on facts, but based on

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, on the first point my hon colleague, the member for Glengarry—Prescott—Russell made, I can point out that this failed campaign tactic has been pulled straight from the playbook of Stephen Harper. The new opposition leader has branded himself after his win as Stephe

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, let me begin by saying that I am somewhat frustrated to be involved in this debate today. The motion on the floor purports to be about the interplay between national security, human rights, and fighting terrorism, to some degree. However, its spirit is to divide C

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure to engage with my colleague, who serves as the chair of the Status of Women committee. It is my pleasure to sit on that committee alongside her. If I were sitting at home listening to the remarks and accepted everything I heard verbatim to

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I would like to start by correcting the record on a few fronts. Although I enjoyed the hon. member opposite's opinions, they were not necessarily based on fact. I note that as part of the national housing strategy, there is money actually being spent today that was a

Transportation Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, there is no question that this is an urgent issue. I met with agricultural producers and shippers who said we need to do this. Their top recommendation during the course of the study was this could be a little better, that could be a little better. All sides have dif

Transportation Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, the hon. member touched on a few different items and, first, I will deal with the marine portion of his question. Importantly, he touched on one piece I did not mention in my remarks. It is with respect to changes in eligibility for different kinds of financing tha
