Border Security  Mr. Speaker, that is the plan of no plan. It is clear that the Prime Minister has no plan to ensure the integrity of our borders. The number of illegal crossings is on the rise. We have already had more this year than the same time last year. Canada's Conservatives have propose

Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities  Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague and friend for bringing this very important motion to the House of Commons.

International Development  Mr. Speaker, the development needs across the world are enormous. Despite the Liberals' refusal to meet our previous Conservative government's level of development funding, the Prime Minister claims to have a plan. He has announced that he is going to set up yet another bureaucra

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, over the course of the summer I had the pleasure of speaking to thousands of constituents. One such group was the Nicaraguan community, whom I had the pleasure of meeting with recently. The situation in Nicaragua has continued to deteriorate over the past months, and

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, I sense through the speech of the hon. member that there was a list of benefits versus disadvantages in the CPTPP agreement. Could she list at least two items that would be of benefit to Canada by signing and going forward with this agreement?

Human Rights  Mr. Speaker, recently some of my Conservative colleagues and I met with a group of young Yazidis who were previously in captivity, enslaved by Daesh. These young people proceeded to tell us stories that were truly the things of nightmares. Loved ones being killed before their eye

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, let me tell the House a story of the Liberal government. It invites us to lunch, makes us pay for that lunch, and then it takes the receipt and claims the expense. It seems like the Liberal government has a problem with definitions. It seems like the Liberals have a

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, it is in the craziness of what the government is doing, when expectation is so high, that the government wants Canadians to sign a blank cheque for them with respect to a carbon tax grab without telling them the cost and how much the emissions will be reduced. Who

Latin American Heritage Month Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased, rather happy, and also thankful for this opportunity to stand here tonight in Ottawa, in the House of Commons, to speak about a topic that I grew up knowing and hearing about from my family.

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, when we do any signalling, we have to watch what we do. I have a lot of respect for my hon. colleague. We serve together on the foreign affairs committee. I will tell her something. When I am listening to the Liberals, whether as a politician or as an average Canadia

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, it is a very good question, but in the meantime, they are changing the label all the time. The Liberals put a new label on and call it a step forward, or something that we have to do. Now, we have a change of label. This is not about the Arms Trade Treaty. It is no

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, that is a very good question. I think this is what we sometimes call virtue signalling by the government. We have very tight control over this. We have the Canada Border Services Agency and Statistics Canada for the collection of all of the information over and abov

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, I think my good friend from Kitchener Centre's memory has failed him big time this time. He knows that the most prominent NATO members have not ratified it. This has to be corrected. We have to be able to call a spade a spade. Besides that, we have a standard. I was
