The Environment  Mr. Speaker, despite all the fine words, the federal government has no plan to combat climate change. It introduced a bill to achieve net-zero emissions, but it has yet to set greenhouse gas reduction targets for 2030. Then when it does, it has the power to change the target on a

Violence against Women  Madam Speaker, yesterday, December 6, we remembered the 14 women who were gunned down by a killer who did not like feminists. For the past 31 years, the sombre anniversary of the femicide at École Polytechnique in Montreal has provided an opportunity to condemn violence against w

Climate Emergency Action Act  Mr. Speaker, it is always a great pleasure for me to speak to the environment and climate change, and I think we need to do so as much as possible in this forum. I welcome this initiative by my colleague from Winnipeg Centre, who introduced a bill on the climate emergency. She a

Climate Emergency Action Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for introducing this bill and for her work on a climate emergency action framework. I noticed that she has focused heavily on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which is a good thing. The bill also mentions the P

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I will change the tone a little bit because I cannot stand hearing people being used as political pawns. We are talking about human lives and vaccines. We often hear the government say that when the vaccine is ready, Canada will be ready. Obviously that means that

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. The government has already announced that priority groups such as seniors, health workers, firefighters, police officers and indigenous peoples would be the first to receive the vaccine. Dr. Tam has already said that we may not

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. He and I discussed Bill C-215, my bill on climate accountability. He told me that it was not the opposition's job to introduce bills like that but the government's. However, it seems his government completely missed the boat in t

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. Since he loves talking about Alberta and the oil industry so much, I have a question for him about that. CBC reported recently that thousands of jobs were lost in Alberta because oil prices fell by about 30% in March. With that

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for the opportunity to speak more to Bill C-215. It is not complicated. As I was saying, we are being asked to vote on a plan that does not yet exist. Bill C-215 calls on the minister to develop a real plan with concrete measures to achieve ou

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her kind words and her support for my bill. As I was saying, I think it is important for the government to be accountable. The review and accountability processes in this bill need to be improved. Under the bill in its current form, the mi

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague. That is a tricky question. A Bloc MP would never say that the federal government should overrule Quebec, for example. In terms of the environment, I know that my colleague and I have different opinions. The issue may be somewhat more delicat

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his kind remarks, which I will now address. I did hear a particularly interesting comment on Bill C-12. I was told that after a rather, well, careful reading, it was found to be empty. The good news is, a bill that is empty can be infinite

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for making an effort to speak French; it is appreciated. He asked some very interesting questions that I will certainly discuss with him, but this debate is about Bill C-12. Unlike the previous government, this government is committed to addr

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure to rise in the House and talk about the environment and climate change. I was eager to see this bill tabled.
