Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, we heard a lot of promises in yesterday's throne speech. However, Quebec, the Gaspé and the lower St. Lawrence region have been hit even harder by the second wave of the crisis than the first.

Further COVID-19 Measures Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech, which was very touching. It was a nice call for collaboration. I, too, believe that we could modernize our way of doing things. We did it once with this hybrid Parliament and we could move toward virtual voting. I think that co

Further COVID-19 Measures Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. Bill C-17 included the CERB, but the government decided not to include it in Bill C-20.

Further COVID-19 Measures Act  Madam Speaker, my colleague spoke about ethics. There was the private island, SNC-Lavalin and now WE Charity.

Further COVID-19 Measures Act  Mr. Speaker, earlier today, I raised the issue of how complex this bill is. Many questions are left unanswered. For instance, Bill C-20 expands access to include seasonal businesses, businesses that were not eligible for assistance before. There are several questions in my mind.

Further COVID-19 Measures Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I really liked what he had to say. I think Bill C-20 would have been a good opportunity for the government to simplify to some degree the fairly complex measures introduced in Bill C-17. It is still complex. It is written in very

Regional Air Transportation  Madam Speaker, on July 1, Air Canada announced its decision to drop 30 regional routes and close eight stations at regional airports, including many in eastern Quebec. This was a devastating blow for my entire region, and especially for the Mont-Joli airport, which will lose over

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Madam Chair, when it's not Air Canada, it's Service Canada. Non-essential businesses reopened in Quebec weeks ago, but people still do not have access to Service Canada.

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Madam Chair, as my colleagues keep saying, Air Canada is shamelessly abandoning the regions in Quebec, regions like mine, the Gaspé, the Lower St. Lawrence and the North Shore, regions that are struggling to recover from this crisis. Air Canada is heavily subsidized by the govern

COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters  Madam Chair, Air Canada received far more financial assistance than many businesses in my riding and in several other ridings, which always fall through the cracks during this pandemic.

Proceedings of the House and Committees  Mr. Speaker, in another life, my colleague was a nurse, and my colleague from Longueuil—Saint-Hubert just paid her a beautiful tribute. At least she knows what it is like for people on the front lines. She knows the needs, or what the needs were in the past, and I do not think mu

Proceedings of the House and Committees  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his remarks. It is a very nice way of looking at things. I completely share his point of view. I think this crisis is the right time to rethink all the ways we do things, as I was saying earlier. Indeed, what was normal was not necessarily ri

Proceedings of the House and Committees  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for giving me the opportunity to continue what I was saying about something I care deeply about.
