Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. The Conservatives' motion is especially relevant because the priority at this time is the pandemic. The people we represent are already being asked to do a lot. They are being asked to make sacrifices and to follow public heal

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. What I find interesting about this motion is that it calls on the Standing Committee on Health to study the inadequacy of health transfers. We have been talking about that a lot since the throne speech. I actually received a no

Marie-Paule Gaudreau  Mr. Speaker, I would like to take a moment to send birthday greetings to Marie-Paule Gaudreau, better known as Madame Boulianne or “grand-maman Bou”, a remarkable woman who will celebrate her 103rd birthday on October 23. Madame Boulianne is a fighter. She had 14 children and no

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, one of the arguments made by the Liberals in response to this motion is that this is not the time to look into corruption because of the current pandemic. The government can cite the pandemic as the reason for the blockages at the border, immigration, Service Canad

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, my colleague made several interesting points in his speech, and I thank him for that. Where we may not agree so much is on how the RCMP should intervene in the current context. In light of that, does he not agree that current tensions between the Mi'kmaq and the non

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I completely agree with him that, while the government is good at putting on a show, making grand gestures and holding emergency debates, it never really takes concrete action. I sincerely hope that the government will pay heed

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. He and I have already talked about the situation in both his riding and mine.

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Madam Speaker, I think those two issues go hand in hand. What we want is for the federal government to issue clear guidelines. We saw the indigenous fishers' side and the non-indigenous fishers' side. We can understand the current tensions. The federal government is dragging its

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I think the minister absolutely needs to go to Nova Scotia and sit down with the stakeholders to negotiate an agreement. That is long overdue. The problem is that the government always waits for something really serious to ha

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. When it comes to sovereignty, whether it is Quebec's sovereignty, environmental sovereignty or the territorial sovereignty of indigenous peoples, I like to take a rather positive approach. Of course, in an ideal world, every

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I am always pleased to participate in emergency debates, even though an urgent need to act does not usually signal good news. This is the second time that the members of the House have come together to talk about violent disputes and the federal government's failur

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I must reiterate that the Bloc Québécois strongly condemns the crimes committed in Nova Scotia and the acts of hatred and racism against the Mi'kmaq that we have witnessed recently. In particular, my colleagues and I feel it is deplorable that DFO and successive gove

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Mégantic—L'Érable for his question. I agree with him. We need to begin by starting a conversation. That is exactly what we are doing today. Yes, the provinces and Quebec should draw upon what we are doing. I think Quebec was ahead of it

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I will try to be brief. I believe that the bill does not go far enough. As I was saying earlier, this training could be helpful to a broad range of professionals, not just judges. The bill we are discussing today concerns fed

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I agree that unanimous decisions set a good example. However, before the bill is unanimously passed, we should ensure that it does not contain any flaws, that it truly expresses the intention of parliamentarians and that it w
