Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System  Mr. Speaker, anyone who has been watching this discussion would see some very passionate debate happening, looking at our system and what we can do. Is it working? Is it not working? What do we need to do to make it better? However, we see that many Twitter feeds and Facebook fee

Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System  Mr. Speaker, what we indicated is that we would receive and give due scrutiny to anything the government proposes. I want to pick up on something the member talked about with respect to his experience of communities closing down. In the very tragic court case I spoke about, the

Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System  Mr. Speaker, I had it wrong. The Liberals have not introduced none; they have introduced one piece of legislation, and we supported it. We heard tonight the justice minister saying how much work has to be done, how much is undone, and that is what my comments are about. If ther

Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System  Mr. Speaker, I do understand that there have been a lot of reports over the years. It is now two and a half years since the government was elected. We would look at any proposal and give any proposal that the government puts on the table due diligence in terms of what Canadians e

Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System  Mr. Chair, tonight the House of Commons is stepping back from its usual business and taking a few hours to discuss the experience of indigenous people in Canada's justice system. For the past week, Canadians have engaged in an intense, emotional discussion about the outcome of t

Rights of Indigenous Peoples  Mr. Speaker, I rise today to speak on behalf of the official opposition and the Conservative caucus in response to the ministerial statement. The Prime Minister and the government have just informed the House that they intend to move forward with negotiations with a broad range

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, this member did not listen to my speech. I talked about how this was a welcomed project. The NDP is being very irresponsible in this debate, because it is trying to escalate the tensions around an approved project that the government has said is going through. The ND

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, there are two realities. One is that, in Canada, we obviously care very much about the environment and we want appropriate environmental regulations. However, red tape and increasing regulations, such as the carbon tax, that are perhaps not in step with the United St

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, that was an absolutely ludicrous comment. The federal government has a responsibility. The pot has been stirred because the government has not stepped up to the plate. I have watched the process because it has been very much part of the riding I represent. For years,

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I too am pleased to join the important debate today. I will be sharing my time with the member for Brandon—Souris. It has already been stated, but I want to talk first about the importance of our oil industry to Canada and to the world. Canada has 170 billion barrel

Marijuana  Mr. Speaker, Bill C-330 would require landlords' consent before medical marijuana plants could be grown on their property. Under the existing regulations, a tenant with a medical marijuana licence can legally grow plants without notifying their landlord. Compare this with the new

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, we have been counting and it has been 25 months since the minister gutted the First Nations Financial Transparency Act. Band members continue to be forced to take their leadership to court to get access to basic financial information. The Liberals met for a year with

Indigenous Affairs  Madam Speaker, no one is saying that this inquiry should not continue. It now has support of all parties in the House and was a key election promise by the government. We are saying it is time for the Liberals to listen to the red flags, and respond to those red flags and the ver

Indigenous Affairs  Madam Speaker, back on October 18, I stood in this place and shared the tragic story of Jennifer Catcheway, whose parents have every reason to feel betrayed by the Prime Minister and his government. Their beautiful 18-year-old daughter had been taken from them on her birthday i

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I want to pick up on that point. I look back at the summer. As people are aware, it was a horrific wildfire season in B.C.. Communities were devastated. The Prime Minister went up there, did a photo op, and, from my understanding, then went down to Vancouver and did
