Fisheries and Oceans  Mr. Speaker, our government takes the protection, conservation, and recovery of the North Atlantic right whale extremely seriously.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, there were five or six things that were somewhat misleading, or perhaps the member opposite just does not know about British Columbia, but there are two things I want to point out. The member stated that we are instituting this to finance a growing national debt.

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, on this World Oceans Day, I want to thank the member for Bonavista—Burin—Trinity for his advocacy on this issue and his work on the fisheries committee. Last month we announced the official reopening of the Canadian Coast Guard maritime rescue sub-centre in St. Joh

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, I listened to the member's speech intently, particularly the story about the gun range. We heard similar stories about fields and drainage ditches and the like. We know that industry wants certainty on their timelines and on their requirements. We also know that we

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, during the member's speech, he stated that they were able to find no scientific proof of harm. Of course, it is hard to find scientific proof if they have fired all of the scientists, or they are muzzling the scientists they do have so they cannot even report what th

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, my congratulations to any Capitals fans out there. Today, we are discussing Bill C-68. It is interesting. For the last month or so, I have been answering these unsubstantiated claims in the House on the surf clam issue. In fact, the member opposite found a way to br

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, the member for Victoria and I have had a chance to work together on a number of issues with another British Columbian. It seems to be an all-British Columbian cast so far. I expect we will hear from other parts of the country. When it comes to the introduction of th

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today in support of the amendments to the Fisheries Act. For far too long we have taken our oceans for granted. This was demonstrated when, in 2012, the previous government decided to change the habitat protections without the support of, or pr

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, I agree with my hon. friend that this place is the voice of Canadians. In fact, I was so interested in what was going on with the Fisheries Act that I went back to the lengthy debate that happened in 2012 on the changes made by the last government to the Fisheries Ac

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, as I have risen to state in the House many times, many of these allegations are unsubstantiated. Our government believes that increasing indigenous participation in offshore fisheries offers a powerful opportunity to advance reconciliation. That is why we created a p
