Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, yes, I think it is irresponsible on the part of the government to have tabled this legislation without hearing back from Canadians. As I mentioned in my remarks, two weeks for Canadians to respond to such important legislation was not sufficient, especially when we

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, this question relates to public safety and the people housed in our correctional facilities in Canada.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, our justice system is broken. Our Crown prosecutors do not lay charges when they should. Our parole officers do not have resources. They are losing hope.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the sanitary pipeline project in Mission is unique in that there is a failure on the part of multiple levels of government to see this project through.
