Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the hon. member for Rivière-des-Mille-Îles. I am very pleased to rise to speak to this motion. I do so with great humility and compassion, because this motion is about compassion for the people who were unjustly imprisoned in 1970. My

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I have a simple question. Bill C-7 is very important, and all of the questions it raises are very delicate. However, right now, there are people who are expecting us and the federal government to pass legislation. Does my collea

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I really enjoyed my hon. colleague's speech. I found one aspect somewhat intriguing. Everyone agrees that we need to pass this bill quickly. Some people who have experienced trauma are waiting for us to pass it. However, there are several other pressing issues, incl

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I very much appreciated my colleague's speech. Like her, I agree with the bill we are debating today. I recently watched the TV series Ratched, which is set in a psychiatric hospital in the 1950s. In the series, they treat homosexuality with a lobotomy. It really d

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. I am glad she is on the right side of this issue and agrees that Canadian society in general and Quebec society in particular still have a ways to go. I myself did not realize conversion therapy was even available in Canada. Th

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his excellent, very moving and very eloquent speech on this issue. I have to admit that until just a few weeks ago, I did not even know that conversion therapy was allowed in Canada. I did not think that such a barbaric practice could exis

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the question the member just asked our Liberal colleague about why the government prorogued the House for five weeks if it is so worried about public servants losing 14 days gathering documents. We could have been responsible and worked for the well-bein

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I am trying to understand the chain of events. Last night, we voted on a motion that would have created a committee to analyze things like the government's spending over the past six months. It would have looked into WE Charity

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. I noticed that she, like everyone, is very concerned about the health of Canadians in the coming months. However, what we are hearing is that the government could, once again, make this motion a confidence vote and potentially

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I have a quick question. For the past two days, the two parties have been passing the buck and blaming each other. I mentioned that earlier. Does my hon. colleague agree that if we had abolished the Senate, this bill would already be passed? As an elected member I

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I think that is what this bill seeks to address. Clearly, the justice system is not welcoming to victims right now. Women do not feel safe, as I mentioned. It is like a mountain. Sexual assault victims must repeat their stories to a police officer, a lawyer, a judg

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I agree with my hon. colleague. I have been here since yesterday, and I have been an MP for a year. I see the Liberals and the Conservatives pointing fingers at each other and saying it is the other party's fault that the bill has not been passed. Both parties are

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, it is a small part. The bill sends a message that judges will have to take training going forward, and this will encourage them to be more open-minded when it comes to these issues, thereby avoiding the kind of terrible comments and remarks we heard from Judge Brau

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to take this opportunity in the House to thank and congratulate folks in Quebec and across Canada who are working on the front lines of this pandemic in hospitals and long-term care homes. I am talking about health care workers, nurses, doctors and ord

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I appreciated the speech delivered by my colleague, who has a thorough understanding of this matter. That is remarkable. I believe we are all of one mind on this issue. I think that everyone is pretty much on the same page. In Canada and Quebec, we want to ensure
