Controlled Drugs and Substances Act  Mr. Speaker, first of all, I cannot comment on why another member of Parliament would make a comment or what their intention is. However, we have a crisis in B.C. What has to stop is the pointing of fingers. We have worked very closely with the provincial government to help it t

Controlled Drugs and Substances Act  Mr. Speaker, I am a new MP. What I can remember is that years ago when the first consumption site in B.C. was brought in there was so much uproar against it.

Controlled Drugs and Substances Act  Mr. Speaker, the information on safe consumption sites and the science behind it is very clear. That is just one part of the puzzle. If we do not address mental health at a young age, that is what they turn to. This is just a piece of a puzzle in a complex equation. We need to h

Canada Pension Plan  Mr. Speaker, it is interesting to hear the opposition say that we look at it only that way. If there was a better way, then our seniors right now would not be in the situation they are in. What would the member have us say when seniors get CPP, OAS, and GIS and are still struggli

Canada Pension Plan  Mr. Speaker, I am going to be one of those who says I cannot speak for the government, but I can say that it takes courage to get to where we are.

Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I thank my esteemed colleague on the other side of the House for bringing up that I am a small businessman. In fact, I do believe in the budget because if we want our small businesses to succeed we need people to actually have money to go out and spend. The effort we

Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. When we talk about the CCB, there is a tendency to focus on the small thing. What we need to be focusing on is what it is actually impacting. I have middle-class constituents in my riding who in pre-budget consultations did not
