Bill C-76—Time Allocation Motion  Mr. Speaker, I thank you for giving me this time, which may be my last time in this wonderful building.

Poverty Reduction Act  Mr. Speaker, that is a wonderful speech by the hon. gentleman on the other side, and a beautiful bedtime story. However, the annex of the bill is empty. There is nothing in it. It is a blank page. How did he come up with all these achievements that he is claiming that his governm

Gender-based Violence  Mr. Speaker, November 25 to December 10 marks 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.

Government Spending  Mr. Speaker, this weekend we learned that the Liberals spent $500,000 to develop a marketing plan for the federal government's rural poverty reduction initiative. I am not just making this up: $500,000 would go a long way to help save lives and protect the vulnerable in the devel

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, the notion of the Liberals so far has been that they never take responsibility for their actions. The message today is a result of non-action on their side. They keep blaming others all the way. They keep laying the blame on other people. They have been on the job fo

National Local Food Day Act  Mr. Speaker, I congratulate the hon. member for what he is trying to do and what he is trying to submit.

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I heard the member opposite respond to a question on some of the weaknesses of the bill, and since he is on that path, I would like to ask him if he could outline some of the areas that could perhaps be strengthened or be better with this bill. Could he highlight t

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

Despite the Liberals' refusal to meet our previous Conservative government's level of development funding, the Prime Minister claims to have a plan.
