Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, vaccine manufacturing is not the only failure on the pharmaceutical side. I am not a big fan of pharma companies, but I recognize that there are often 10, 15 or 20 years of research in all areas before a vaccine or a drug goes to market. We must put in place a rese

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, we could debate all the strategies, starting with putting all our eggs in one basket, providing researchers and knowledge, and having some sort of partnership. The partner turned out to be unreliable and cut us loose. Canada then turned to a strategy of having as ma

Business of Supply  Gosh darn it, Mr. Speaker, I have had enough of this pandemic. I am completely fed up, I want no truck with it, and I grew up in Fermont, where we like our trucks, so that is saying something. Like everyone here, in February, I asked some questions of the government, specificall

Proceedings on a Bill Entitled An Act to Provide for the Resumption and Continuation of Operations at the Port of Montreal  Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to my colleague. We really do not like having things forced on us. That said, how many times did he call the union over the two years of discussions? The union is prepared to have longshoremen back to work by tomorrow morning if the employer ag

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very pertinent comments. Indeed, if nothing is done, the number of people who speak French will continue to decline in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. It is true that the bill is a small step, but it should not and cannot be the only ste

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. As I mentioned in my own speech, it is important to protect the French language everywhere. It would be despicable if a province acted in retaliation and decided to subject its francophone minority to a law to protect the Engli

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very relevant and interesting question. Indeed, the white paper does not go far enough. The best way to put words into action and walk the talk is to support the passage of Bill C-254, so that federal institutions in Quebec will apply th

Canada Labour Code  moved that Bill C-254, An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code, the Official Languages Act and the Canada Business Corporations Act, be read the second time and referred to a committee.

Canada Labour Code  Yes, Madam Speaker, I meant the hon. member for La Pointe-de-l'Île. Thank you very much. The purpose of this bill has the consensus of the National Assembly of Quebec. Every living premier and every union is calling for the Charter of the French Language to apply to federally re

The Budget  Madam Speaker, as my colleague pointed out, large sums of money are earmarked for distribution in the budget, yet some sectors seem to have been forgotten. The budget seems to leave out SMEs, especially those in the arts, culture and tourism sectors. What does my colleague thin

The Budget  Madam Speaker, I share my colleague's dismay about the spending and where it is going. I am also concerned about the fact that this budget could be summed up in one word: intrusion—intrusion into Quebec and provincial jurisdictions. I would like to hear my colleague comment on

The Budget  Madam Speaker, the government refuses to take action in response to the unanimous request of Quebec and the Canadian provinces to permanently increase health transfers to 35% per year. Permanent transfers are a way to make long-term investments to help people in terms of their

The Budget  Madam Speaker, my colleague spoke about how the budget will help with job creation. From a holistic perspective, I have to wonder. Increasing health transfers would lead to better care, since new equipment could be purchased. This would create jobs, including jobs in health care

The Budget  Madam Speaker, I would like to pick up on the idea of a she-covery and the importance of women in the workplace. Not only are many women in the workforce, but they are also caregivers. The number of patients per nurse, most of whom are women, keeps rising because of diminishing

The Budget  Madam Speaker, I want to come back to what my hon. colleague said. This budget proposes standards and agencies, as well as a $3-billion investment without providing any services to the public, which means more bureaucracy and consultation but without any additional services, at
