Emergencies Act  Madam Speaker, I appreciate that my colleague has outlined the implications of this measure. We have seen throughout this debate and over the past number of years how misinformation feeds into confusion and a lack of understanding. I have talked with a number of my constituents a

Emergencies Act  Mr. Speaker, the member asked if anyone on the other side had talked to any of the protesters. I did speak to one of my constituents when she came back from Ottawa, and we had a very good conversation. Is it okay, based on his speech, that a couple of hundred people can take ov

Emergencies Act  Mr. Speaker, I have noticed not only this morning but over the past couple of years a very targeted, divisive approach to get to this government, and not on any merit. I will ask the member why he is blurring jurisdiction lines. I know we have heard from Bloc Québécois members

Government Business No. 7—Proceedings on Bill C-12  Mr. Speaker, that is exactly the point. If we are trying to move this legislation forward and if the member opposite agrees that seniors need that support, then why is he not supporting the expedient passage of the bill?

Government Business No. 7—Proceedings on Bill C-12  Mr. Speaker, I have been in the House for six years representing the wonderful people of Mississauga—Erin Mills. Over the past year I listened to the parties opposite rant and rave about how they have no faith in this government and that they do not support it. The government put

Government Business No. 7—Proceedings on Bill C-12  Mr. Speaker, supporting our seniors is one issue I think all parliamentarians have been quite unanimous on. We saw our seniors throughout all communities, rural and urban, struggle so much during this pandemic. We as the Liberal government put in those measures to provide extra s

COVID-19 Emergency Measures Timeline  Mr. Speaker, “I am Canadian and I am triple vaxxed. For my family, my neighbours, my co-workers, our healthcare workers, for my country.

The Opioid Crisis in Canada  Mr. Chair, I thank the member for his very impassioned speech. There are a number of different schools of thought about how justice should be conducted and how we should conduct our society.

COVID-19 Protests  Madam Speaker, the member said in his speech that the Prime Minister's job is to unite, as is everyone's in this place.

National Day of Remembrance and Action Against Islamophobia  Mr. Speaker, five years ago, an act of hate took the lives of Ibrahima, Mamadou, Khaled, Aboubaker, Abdelkrim and Azzeddine in Quebec City.

Diversity and Inclusion  Mr. Speaker, since my Motion No. 103 in 2017, we have changed the conversation so that no federal leader could ever pretend that Islamophobia is not a threat. We have made progress since then, including a national summit earlier this year, but as long as Muslim Canadians fear for

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I have to remind the member that it is up to the judges, and the removal of mandatory minimums gives them the discretion to say that these are the circumstances in which a crime has occurred and that they will ensure the penalties are fitting to the crime. That dis

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her question. My colleague is absolutely right. What we need to understand is that with Bill C-5 and with the removal of mandatory minimums, providing punishment and mandatory minimums is not enough to create the equitable justice we

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, in the last Parliament, the member for Coquitlam—Port Coquitlam's private member's bill addressed the issue of decriminalizing those who were seeking those safe injection sites, and good on him for doing that. One bill is not an answer to addressing a systemic prob
