Employment Insurance  Mr. Speaker, the Liberal leader is trying to have his cake and eat it too, but he cannot fool Canadians. By flip-flopping on today's Bloc bill, he thinks that Canadians will forget that he supports a $4 billion, 45-day work year. Yet even though the Liberals admit that the bill i

Firearms Registry  Mr. Speaker, today is decision day for opposition MPs. They will need to decide if they will stand up for their constituents or if they will bend to their leader's wishes. It is time to scrap the wasteful and ineffective long gun registry that has wasted over $1 billion. We know

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, I rise today to speak against the motion that is before us today. It is not a complicated motion, but it certainly is a misleading motion.

Business of Supply  Madam Chair, I was wondering if the minister could comment on the Arctic and the north.

Firearms Registry  Mr. Speaker, this week is an important one for those of us who have long opposed the long gun registry. Tomorrow, the public safety committee will start clause-by-clause consideration of Bill C-391, which would end this registry. However, Liberal MPs such as the member for Aja

Firearms Registry  Mr. Speaker, Canadians continue to speak out against the wasteful and ineffective long gun registry, but the Liberal leader does not want to listen. He thinks he can score political points by fighting a so-called cultural war against rural Canadians. However, the Liberal leader
