Valcartier Victims  Mr. Speaker, it is with deep sadness, but also a sense of peace, that I rise today. In July 1974, young cadets gathered at the Valcartier Cadet Summer Training Centre in Quebec. During a training exercise a grenade exploded, killing six cadets and injuring dozens more. I was a

Fisheries and Oceans  Mr. Speaker, the coast of B.C. is home to four globally unique glass sponge reefs, the Hecate Strait and Queen Charlotte Sound glass sponge reefs.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I too held a town hall in my riding and spoke with lots of my constituents.

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. It was challenged over and over again. I am a member of Parliament today, able to respond and able to actually implement

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

Transport  Mr. Speaker, the government recently announced the oceans protection plan. The House should know that investing in marine safety not only benefits coastal communities but watershed communities, like my riding of Pitt Meadows—Maple Ridge. Could the minister tell the House about

Dennis TeBoekhorst  Mr. Speaker, it is with great sorrow and gratitude that I rise today to honour the life of one of my constituents, Lieutenant Dennis TeBoekhorst, who passed away while fishing, which was one of his great passions.

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. If, back in 1965, the government had not done this, where would our seniors be today? What kind of economy, what kind of environment,
