Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, it is worrisome. In addition to the cost overruns, today the Auditor General is condemning the major delays in shipbuilding. She notes that Irving will not deliver its ships until 2030 and that Seaspan is also behind schedule. These delays will get worse because th

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, a number of things my hon. colleague mentioned in his speech were very interesting. However, when it comes time to put food on the table and buy winter clothing, these things do not help seniors take out their debit cards and pay for the necessities of life. Yes,

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, 140,000 members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada were victims of the Phoenix pay system. Some were not paid for months. Some lost their homes, their mental health, their lives. To make up for this fiasco, the government announced $2,500 in compensation. Now

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, public servants already pay taxes on their wages. The compensation they are getting for the Phoenix fiasco is not wages, a bonus or a promotion. They are being compensated because the federal government failed to pay its own employees and caused them hardship for ye

Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2020  Madam Speaker, speaking of transparency, a huge amount of money is currently being spent, and we, the Bloc Québécois, believe that it is important that a committee be established to review and study all COVID-19 spending, in order to ensure that past and future spending is manage

Economic Statement Implementation Act, 2020  Madam Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for his speech. I am reminded of Félix Leclerc, who said the best way to kill a man is to pay him to do nothing. What is needed in order to jump-start the economy are vaccines. Two provisions in Bill C-14 will help speed up distribution,

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to hear my colleague's thoughts on how the Minister of Foreign Affairs implied that China is a major economic partner and that this economic partnership outweighs the threats against the Five Eyes. Does she think that by refusing to call what is happeni

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, let me paraphrase the late Pierre Mondy and the brilliant Alexandre Astier who believed that a great leader, a hero, always fights for the dignity of the weak. With that sentiment in mind, I would like my colleague to comment on Canada's actions, or lack of action,

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I was much younger then, but I remember hearing about the Rwandan genocide and about how the government did not listen to General Dallaire. He suffered terribly knowing what he did when no one would listen. What can the government do today to avoid repeating its m

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, we call that abandoning Davie because $2.4 billion in maintenance is a far cry from the $70 billion it will end up costing to build the frigates instead of $26 billion as was first thought. That is a cost overrun the equivalent of Quebec's entire annual health budge

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, it has been 10 years since the federal government awarded Irving the contract to build frigates, but the shipyard has yet to deliver anything. Now we learn that it is going to be another 10 years until the first frigate is built. It will be delivered in 2031, at the

Health  Mr. Speaker, we are the only G7 country to take what is meant for the least fortunate and then eventually give it back to the least fortunate. We are the only ones. The government needs to be transparent. On December 7, the Prime Minister said that we would get a head start on v

Health  Mr. Speaker, despite the bad news that keeps piling up, the government keeps insisting that we will receive six million doses by the end of March. I hope so, but the government needs to share whatever information it has to support that claim. At this point, halfway through, we ha

Health  Mr. Speaker, the people need to be able to have confidence in this government, but this is difficult, since the government is not transparent and everything we do find out is worrisome. The people are not reassured to hear that the government is taking vaccines from the COVAX pro

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, that is an excellent question that we could have asked. It almost needs to be a standing committee. We should study our relationships on an ongoing basis to ensure that they are real partnerships. Why did we not do so with the former administration? That is an ex
