Agriculture and Agri-Food  Do something now.

March 1st, 2018House debate

John BarlowConservative

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, it is great to hear the government once again standing up for the rail lines and not fighting for Canadian farmers. The Western Grain Elevator Association said that the situation is dire, and that the grain backlog is getting worse not better. The Liberals ignored

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague has to understand the difference in terms of what was in place before. There was never a political decision made on any pipeline approval that was there. It was based strictly on the National Energy Board, which is a non-partisan, arm's length decision p

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I completely agree, except in this case I do not think there is any room in Bill C-69 for any science-based decision-making. It is quite clear that there would be one person making the decision moving forward on any infrastructure project when it comes to our natural

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I love the member's imaginative memory. In fact, the Conservatives had 17 pipelines built. I love how they put that part in there about “to tidewater”. Well, let us look back. The Liberals have not had one new pipeline approved to tidewater. Not one has done their co

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I will be splitting my time with my colleague from Provencher. I want to start by reading a couple of quotes about the response to the Liberals' new Bill C-69: In reality, it’s unlikely that any major project would proceed under the new rules.... [It] contains a g

Impact Assessment Act  Madam Speaker, I do not think there are too many people in the House who have the knowledge and expertise on this issue as does our shadow minister for natural resources. Two things that the member touched on are quite important to discuss. Liberals are trying to talk about that

John BarlowConservative

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, we had that provision in place so that we would not be facing the crisis that we are facing right now. Grain farmers are facing a crippling rail backlog because the Liberals ignored our advice to pass a separate grain transportation bill. Now Canadian farmers are l

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to rise to speak in this debate. I recall very succinctly, in my previous career as a journalist, how important the ramifications of the changes in 2012 to the Navigable Waters Protection Act were to farmers, ranchers, and municipalities. I will shar

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the perspective of my Liberal colleague. I do not think anybody in the House wants to jeopardize the health of our fisheries, whether in the oceans or rivers. I have probably three of the most pristine fly fishing rivers in the world in my riding. I cert

Health  Mr. Speaker, today is Canada's Agriculture Day. It is a day where across Canada we celebrate our producers and thank them for all they do. However, our farmers and ranchers are not celebrating because the Liberals have shut them out of the discussion on the Canada food guide. O

International Trade  Mr. Speaker, the trans-Pacific partnership is a vital agreement. It will give our agriculture and agribusiness exporters unprecedented market access to high value markets like Japan, Vietnam, and Malaysia. It will also give us a competitive advantage over the United States. Howev

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I ask that the recorded division be deferred until tomorrow, Wednesday, February 7 at the end of the time provided for government orders.

February 6th, 2018House debate

John BarlowConservative

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are carrying out an ideological attack on Canadian agriculture, with warning labels on dairy and meat products, and a Canadian food guide that discourages people from eating healthy animal protein and dairy. Not one single farmer or processor was allowed

John BarlowConservative

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, Canadian farmers are asking for us to do them a bit of a favour. Can somebody please put an APB out on the Minister of Agriculture? First, India imposes debilitating tariffs on Canadian pea exports and now our durum wheat producers are being unfairly targeted by It
