Carbon Pricing Mr. Speaker, I guess I hit a nerve with the Conservatives, because they are recognizing that they have not spoken about wildfires and the thousands of their own constituents who have been driven from their homes. Instead of talking about the real impact and cost of climate chan
Points of Order Mr. Speaker, I am honestly not sure what the member opposite is talking about. I did not refer to someone being present or not in the House. I was referring to questions in question period.
Carbon Pricing Mr. Speaker, do colleagues know what is costing Atlantic Canadian families right now? It is the forest fires in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It is the fact that there are thousands of families across this country that have had to flee their homes. Instead of putting policies on

Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Madam Speaker, what my hon. colleague said is really important because it is for all of those reasons that we brought Bill C-35 forward. It is because there was a lack of accessibility. It is because child care was extraordinarily unaffordable. It is because we wanted to ensure h
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Madam Speaker, I am absolutely thrilled to be back in the House talking about Bill C-35, an act respecting early learning and child care in Canada. This is another important step on the journey to providing early learning and child care that is affordable, accessible, high quali
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Thank you, Madam Speaker. I really hope it is not the case that the Conservative Party of Canada has decided not to support affordable child care for Canadians, because I know that, for the hundreds of thousands of Canadian families for which this has been life changing, it woul
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Madam Speaker, that is so typical from the Conservatives. They are saying, “Things are not perfect, so let us just do absolutely nothing.” On this side of the House, the Liberals say that, if we see a challenge, we should go forward and fix it. We should work with Canadians and t
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Madam Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for her collaboration on this. I am absolutely thrilled we are here, continuing to advance early learning and child care and putting it into legislation, so I thank her for that collaboration. Yes, we do need to address the workf
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Madam Speaker, on the contrary, we recognize Quebec's leadership. We used Quebec's experience as a foundation for our child care and early learning program. I worked hand in hand with my Quebec counterpart on getting this bill through. We respect provincial jurisdictions.
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Mr. Speaker, I hear the passion that is there and I appreciate my hon. colleague's support for child care. Every single one of the issues that she raised is why this legislation is important and why this program is important. All of those issues would be in place if we were not m
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Mr. Speaker, I hope Canadian women heard that speech, because the hon. member basically said that $6,000 a year in their pocket is scraps. She said that women want to stay home with their children. If they want to, that is their choice, but there are actually a lot of women who a
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my hon. colleague for her thoughtful speech. She put a lot of thought into it. I want to correct the record on a couple of things, though. The first is with respect to what child care is included in this legislation, as well as the agreements.
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her speech because it reinforces why Bill C-35 is important when it comes to creating affordable child care, creating accessible child care and creating more spaces. I know that, when the Conservatives see a big challenge, they just thr
Canada Early Learning and Child Care Act Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for his speech. I also thank the Bloc Québécois for saying that it is in favour of this bill. I want to confirm that this bill respects the jurisdictions of the provinces and territories, including Quebec's jurisdiction. The agreement we si
