Finance  Mr. Speaker, I am very happy to get a question from a Quebec MP about our government's investments, because this gives me the opportunity to talk about our investments in early childhood care. This initiative started in Quebec. We are proud to be helping Quebec with this crucial

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, it is pretty hard to take the Conservatives seriously on the cost of groceries when the senior adviser to their leader is actually a lobbyist for Loblaws. Now it turns out that the deputy leader used to work for Walmart. The Conservatives are opposing our historic r

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, this fall we put forward a comprehensive economic plan that included generational changes to Canada's competition law that will bring down grocery prices. The Conservative leader described that plan as a “disgusting scheme”. His actions make a lot more sense now tha

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, I am really glad to have a question about Canadian workers and Canadian jobs because it gives me a chance to share some good news that we got on Friday. The Canadian economy, in January, added 37,000 new jobs. That means we have 1.1 million more jobs than we had befo

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, I am glad the Conservatives are finally asking a question about the economy because it gives me the chance to share some good news. In January, thanks to the hard work of Canadians, Canada created 37,000 new jobs; wages in Canada have been outpacing inflation for the

Government Priorities  Mr. Speaker, the most important thing to every Canadian family is having a job, and every time someone loses their job, it is a disaster for that family. That is why we were so glad to see the strong job recovery across Canada, 1.1 million more jobs since before COVID. It is also

Government Priorities  Mr. Speaker, we will take no lessons from the Conservatives when it comes to supporting the most vulnerable among us. Since we have formed government, 2.3 million Canadians are out of poverty. Poverty in Canada was at 14.5% when the Conservatives left office. Today, it is down to

Forestry Industry  Mr. Speaker, Quebec has had its own carbon pricing system since 2013. The province is not subject to the federal regime. The Conservative leader continues to demonstrate just how poorly he understands Quebeckers by promising to dismantle a system that Quebec decided to put in pl

The Economy  Mr. Speaker, the Conservatives are the ones who want to reduce all the social support that the federal government is currently giving to Quebeckers. All that the Conservatives know how to do is make cuts. They want to cut support for the less fortunate, but we will be there and

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, we will take no lessons from the Conservatives when it comes to supporting the least vulnerable in our country. That is the party that wants to cut the Canada child benefit. That is the party that wants to cut support to our seniors. That is the party that wants to c

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, no one here is surprised to hear the Conservative leader talk about fear and falsehoods, because that is what he trafficks in every single day. It is his area of personal expertise. What he is proposing is at least consistent. He wants to cut, cut, cut the support t

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, the Conservative leader should know a lot about living off the public purse. That is all he has done his entire life. When it comes to the price on pollution, this is entirely revenue-neutral. The government does not keep a penny. It returns more money to eight out

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, I have a lot of respect for the former Conservative leader. He is a proud MP from the province of Saskatchewan, a province that is proud of its Ukrainian-Canadian population. Last week, the current Conservative leader, in a radio interview, implied strongly that he

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, I am glad to hear the member opposite talk about the rebate because that is what it is. It is returning money to Canadians. Eight out of 10 families are better off. It is revenue-neutral for the government. I would ask the Saskatchewan MP, a member of Parliament man

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, Canadians can see through the Conservatives. They know that the only thing Conservatives know how to do is cut, and the people who suffer the most are the most vulnerable. They want to cut the Canada child benefit. They do not support dental care, which is helping th
