United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act  Mr. Speaker, the minister referred to the pre-study at INAN and all the work that has supposedly been done on this legislation already.

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I would start my answer by simply suggesting we are talking today about Bill C-22, not about climate change, so let us stick to the topic. In the context of discretion of judges, judges are professional. They have great training and they have great abilities. As a ne

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, when the Prime Minister made election promises in 2015 and then again in 2019 to eliminate all long-term drinking water advisories in first nations communities, he was glad to stand in front of cameras and microphones.

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, the minister likes to talk a lot about numbers and the advisories lifted, but let us talk about some other numbers. In last week's Auditor General's Report, there is clear identification of the Liberal government's failure in the past six years. In those six years,
