Agriculture and Agri-food  Mr. Speaker, in spite of recent lofty commitments, the government has increased the burden on our businesses. In my riding, Absorbent Products, a three-decade-old family business that manufactures food grade additives for use in animal feed, has been fighting with CFIA officials

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, I know that in the last Parliament there were many strikes that were averted. We have fine mediators who do great work. I know of many cases where our ministers made sure the strikes were averted by the work they did at the table, sleeping in the port, and really get

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, I will again reiterate that we all want to see this report in the House and the change that was promised. I acknowledge that I continue to be concerned. As we watched the inquiry, we saw personnel, whether it was chief executive officers or commissioners, leave. Mo

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, tonight I rise regarding a question I asked the minister several months ago. Although a lot of time has passed, I think the issue is even more relevant today than when I asked it at that time, which I certainly did not feel I got a satisfactory response to. It was a

Bear Clan Patrol  Mr. Speaker, last Thursday evening, I walked with a Bear Clan Patrol in Winnipeg. It was heart-wrenching. The team of volunteers patrols the north end, providing support for the most vulnerable. In just a few hours, we encountered a sexual assault victim, domestic abuse, and drug

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate my colleague's thoughts on one area of the bill, a bill that is 850-plus pages. When parliamentarians stand to vote on the legislation, with the very minimal debate time we have had, people will be very unfamiliar with many parts of the bill because they

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, during the time allocation debate, I expressed concerns about the fact that I would not be able to have a chance to speak to this budget implementation act. What I would like to ask my colleague is this. This is a big bill. It is a complex bill and in division 4, s

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, in this budget implementation act there are three bills concerning important indigenous issues that should be separate and standalone bills. First of all, when trying to go to the relevant areas of the document, there are no links. The document is so massive it take

Points of Order  Mr. Speaker, I too will try to keep my comments to just a couple of minutes, but it is important to intervene. We are talking about the NATO Parliamentary Association. If we look at what the purpose of NATO is, it is to safeguard freedom and security of all its members, collectiv

Canada Revenue Agency Act  Mr. Speaker, I was honoured to have a few minutes in the first hour of debate and I am now honoured to have the opportunity to continue my thoughts in this second hour of debate.

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, life is very expensive in northern Canada, and residents simply do not have an option to hop on the O-Train or the Canada Line. The cost of housing, the cost of infrastructure, the cost of food and heating their homes in the winter is extraordinarily expensive. Two h

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, the government has insisted that it has to rush this bill because of court imperatives and in response to a court decision. My colleague has clearly articulated how that is not accurate. Could he share with us what the courts actually said Liberals had to do and how

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, it is important to remember that what we are debating today is time allocation. I want to go back to 2015 when the Liberals made a number of commitments. They promised electoral reform, and what happened? They ditched it. They promised to get back to a balanced bud

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, three years ago, this was a key election promise by the government. We know that food costs in the north are absolutely staggering. After going through the process and withdrawing from the consultations, an Inuit leader told CBC that she had lost all hope. Listen to

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, this morning we learned that the five major Inuit organizations pulled out of the government's working group on food security. It was clear from the start that the Liberals had no intention of listening. The consultations were “just tokenism and optics...so they ca
