Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Vancouver Kingsway for his speech. We agree on a number of things, particularly the fact that we have before us a government whose policy seems to be one of withholding information to cover up its scandals. Contrary to what it said, the g

Government Commitments  Mr. Speaker, today, for the umpteenth time, dairy farmers called on the government to grant a simple request: that it keep its word. We ask farmers to keep us fed, so the least we can do is support them. The government needs to show them a modicum of respect, since they have be

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I share the same feelings and concerns as my colleague. He talked about the mental health of seniors.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask my colleague a question.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his great question, which will allow me to speak about several things. We agree on free trade. The Bloc Québécois has always been in favour of trade, but it must be done in an intelligent manner. Canada exports pork and will continue to do s

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his multi-faceted question. First of all, I did not say “$270 million”, I said “$252 million”. My colleague raises a very important point. Indeed, not only is it a rather small amount, but some of it is recycled money. Second, I do not beli

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I commend my colleague for her speech. I am a little dismayed to see the government members playing a kind of partisan politics.

Proceedings on the bill entitled An Act relating to economic recovery in response to COVID-19  Madam Speaker, I congratulate my colleague on his speech.
