Canada Revenue Agency Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to be joining the debate at third reading on a private member's bill which I seconded, and which I support.

Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, I have been listening to the member for Kingston and the Islands make his argument that the Conservatives do not support pieces of legislation and therefore we speak against them. The argument from the government caucus is we sound angry or mean, and we do not agree

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I voted against Bill C-69. It is a bad bill. It is poorly worded with flowery language. It is a matter that is no longer before the House. It is now in another place, in the Senate, for consideration. The vast majority of my constituents want to see Bill C-69 fail

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, of course, it will have a huge impact on farmers and the farming community. I do not happen to represent a riding with many farmers. In the deep southeast part of my riding, there are what I would call “ranchettes”, the hobby farms and ranches that Calgarians have ch

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the member is very diligent in asking the same question to get an answer. It is hard for people to pay into CPP or EI when they do not have a job. It is hard to provide for their family when they do not have a job. It is also hard to face a government that is fully

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the approach the member has suggested and the measure he is speaking of, the expropriation and purchase of Trans Mountain, is, to quote Ronald Reagan, “I'm from the government and I'm here to help”. It is patently untrue. The vast majority of Albertans would say that

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the member draws our attention to the fact that the date for balancing the budget is now difficult to even predict, because many finance department documents and budgetary documents do not quite match up. It does not make a lot of sense. To me, it is very simple. Th

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the purpose of the amendment I proposed in the House of Commons is to take this matter at third reading stage and return it to committee for a full consideration of this issue of bereavement leave.

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, the member for New Westminster—Burnaby is absolutely correct. It happens all too often.
