Calgary Stampede  Mr Speaker, I rise today to shamelessly promote my hometown and one of the greatest annual traditions in the country, the Calgary Stampede. Having joined with the Calgary Exhibition in 1912, the Stampede has weathered recessions, world wars, floods, and even a relocation to New Y

Impact Assessment Act  Sadly, Mr. Speaker, my colleague from North Okanagan—Shuswap knows that the response is “all of the above”. It is for a multitude of reasons that we are in fear of this piece of legislation, and for all of those reasons, the project approval, the uncertainty in regard to market a

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, it is certainly an incredible amount of investment that has fled, but the member reminds me of the irony of this situation. I believe that the Liberal government and the environment minister are doing this in an attempt to improve the environment. The irony is that i

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I will be splitting my time today with the hon. member for Cariboo—Prince George.

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, I really like apples, and I really like oranges. However, I do not think one can compare apples to oranges. I think that is what my colleague across the way is trying to do, compare apples to oranges. The reality is that there is no mechanism right now by which e

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, what would happen if we let 35% of criminals out of the prisons? What would happen if we let 35% of people drive drunk? Thirty-five per cent is too much. We need 100% readiness, 100% confidence from our forces across the nation that they are ready to deal with th

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, as I mentioned, I have a young son. He is seven years old, and the thought that he could possess any amount of marijuana, never mind the amount outlined in this bill, within five years is terrifying to me. I like to think that I am a good parent in the sense that w

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, today I will be splitting my time with the hon. member for Provencher. I am here today to speak against Bill C-45 and its legalization of cannabis. This bill is supposedly intended to protect youth, regulate the industry, and eliminate the black market. Not only w

Prime Minister's Trip to India  Madam Speaker, the Prime Minister's trip to India was billed as an opportunity to foster relations between India and Canada, but that opportunity was squandered when the Liberals caused a diplomatic incident and embarrassed our country on the global stage. It was shocking enough

Fisheries Act  Madam Speaker, it is absolutely unfair to this side of the House that the Liberal government has attempted to make us wear an environmental record that is completely false and untrue, based upon our 10 years in government with Stephen Harper. In the member's commentary, I hear on

Fisheries Act  Madam Speaker, tonight I would like to focus my attention on the detrimental effects Bill C-68 would have on development. Before I do so, I want to point out to those listening at home that the government has once again moved time allocation. When the Liberals were in oppositio

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, as my colleague for Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan said this morning, I believe it would not be prudent at this time for us to have a diplomatic presence in Tehran. In fact, we would be putting the lives of Canadian diplomats there in danger, which is very much a co
