Transportation Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, it is pleasure to rise today and speak to Bill C-49 and the motion put forward by the government. The message I want to get forward today is really about what brought us here and whether Canadian agriculture had to go through all this pain and suffering when we rea

Transportation Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, the minister's presentation highlights a lot of the frustration that we have heard from our stakeholders. A lot of questions are around the inaction from the minister on this file, especially when it comes to grain transportation. The minister is now standing up and

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister's conspiracy theory has destroyed our trading relationship with India. Canadian pulse producers are already facing 50% duties, and now India has imposed basically a three-month ban on yellow pea imports. Our pea exports to India are down 80%, putti

Interprovincial Trade  Mr. Speaker, a true Canadian free trade agreement would offer an incredible economic opportunity. It would create jobs and improve consumer choice. Interprovincial trade barriers are crippling Canadian businesses, costing our economy $130 billion. Instead of fighting for free tr

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Minister of Natural Resources asked why we are not sharing his optimism. Is he serious? Investments of $86 billion are gone. Northern gateway, energy east, and Pacific NorthWest are cancelled. Trans Mountain is on its last legs, and we are facing a job-

National Grain Week  Mr. Speaker, our farmers have much of which to be proud: a tireless work ethic, an unwavering commitment to our rural communities, and a passion for the land passed on from generation to generation. I invite Canadians across the country to join me in celebrating the inaugural Na

Agriculture and Agrifood  Mr. Speaker, it does not matter if our producers cannot get their products to market if they do not have a market to sell it to. The Liberals have to understand that there are very real consequences to the Prime Minister's disastrous trip to India.

Agriculture and Agrifood  Mr. Speaker, our key exports are down 73%. Lentils are down 79%. India has increased tariffs and are implementing a fumigation fee. The CEO of a major pulse exporter said that the trade crisis with India is the “ultimate hammer”, and that we have been “hit over the head and we ar

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, whether my colleague agrees with free trade or not, I know in his province of Manitoba, pulses and these types of products are very important to the farmers. In case I am wrong, I want to ensure my numbers are correct. The tariffs on lentils and pulses went to 30% a

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, I guess this shows us how much of a priority agriculture is when the ministers do not know who should get up to answer the question. Farmers and ranchers who use the temporary foreign worker program are stressed and they are angry. Service Canada auditors are treati

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, once again, in that discussion between Canada and India, agriculture was never even discussed. From this wonderful meeting, was any agreement reached on fumigation or reducing tariffs on lentils and peas? No, none of those things were done. In fact, absolutely, it

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, that is a great point. My answer is no, but I want to bring it back to what I have been talking about, if that is okay with my colleague. There is a very significant difference between when we were in government as Conservatives and the Liberal government, and I wa

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to speak to this issue. I will be taking a different tack on what we are discussing today. Our motion is asking the Prime Minister to come clean with the conspiracy theories he has been putting forward. This is an issue of concern for Canadians a
