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

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for the history lesson. I know he has a good memory and a lot of information, and my memory is very good too. I enjoy travelling and working with him on committee, and by all means I call him a friend. On the question, it is correc

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, we will probably have to go back and talk about our current regime. I think it is a very important reminder. We know that. As I said, since 1947, when we came up with our legislation, the minister, regardless of which government and which minister it was, has had th

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, when speaking about Bill C-47, we must remind ourselves to mention the current regime we have in Canada regarding arms trade control. Since 1947, when Canada adopted such a control regime, the minister has had the ability to prevent the supply of military equipment t

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis  Mr. Speaker, as members of Parliament, we have the privilege of meeting people all across our great country.

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to congratulate the people of Ontario for electing a new PC government yesterday. It was a great victory. I think they made the right choice by electing a government that can serve the people, first and foremost, and no one other than that. I am please

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, there is a bit of disagreement here about the continual claim by the other side that we are fearmongering when we disagree with it, or when we have a better viewpoint on what we aim to get out of such laws or regulations. During testimony, I asked a very prominent

Taxation  Madam Speaker, under the Liberal government, we have seen billions of dollars of investment leave Canada due to its failed economic policies. Whether it is increased payroll taxes, a carbon tax, or stifling red tape, Canadian businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to co
