Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, I noticed that the member completely avoided talking about the fiscal situation that Canada will be facing with the sky-high deficits and this incredible new debt that we are taking on, so I do not really have a question for the member.

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Madam Speaker, I want to thank my colleague, who belongs to another party but sometimes sits with me on the Standing Committee on Finance.

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Madam Speaker, ethics matter, especially when it is the Prime Minister who is leading the cabinet and who has been given this immense responsibility and privilege to serve as the Prime Minister. Ethics do matter. The member talked about infrastructure. It is interesting. The Par

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Madam Speaker, I would like to thank the opposition House leader for concurring in this report and basically presenting the case for why it is important to have debate today on the Prime Minister's ethical breaches.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, everything. Obviously, we will know whether the information given on February 23, during the media briefing, was indeed correct and which the Prime Minister confirmed on February 27, or, whether since then, when the story changed, it is either the foreign affairs min

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to the speech given by my colleague opposite on our motion today, but I did not hear a lot in response to the content of the motion.
