Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, the just path is always the right one. So goes the Yiddish proverb, which I know the member for Thornhill will thoroughly enjoy. We know that the government is on the unjust path with vote 40 and how it is going to proceed on its spending plans. The example I give

Latin American Heritage Month Act  Mr. Speaker, it is a great pleasure to join in the debate this evening on a Senate bill. I believe that I am the 23rd MP to rise this evening in the House.

Impact Assessment Act  Madam Speaker, the member has provided us with a great overview of the many failings of the government when it comes to balancing.

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I can answer very simply that in May 2015, an NDP government was elected provincially, and it proceeded to punish energy workers and the energy sector for simply doing their business. The government made it more complicated for companies to merge. It made it more com

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for her question. She is always very precise with the types of questions she asks, especially when it comes to the energy industry. However, if we look at the IEA numbers on upstream capital spending, it shows that in 2016, 2017, and 2018, spending

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to be rejoining the debate on Bill C-69. I have a tough job.

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, as I listened to the parliamentary secretary's speech, she talked mostly about the navigable waters act, but I want to bring it back to the standing test the NEB used to have.
