Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, our colleague's comments have nothing to do with the motion being debated today. Can he move on to something else?

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, my colleague talks about wounds still being felt. I was 12 years old at the time, so I did not experience long-term trauma, but I can say that in the weeks and months that followed, I locked my door. We were not allowed to lock the door, but I got the right to do so.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, yes, that is exactly what I said and that is what I can repeat. The War Measures Act was invoked essentially to kill the sovereignty movement. No one would be able to convince me that there were other apparent reasons. Fewer than 10 FLQ members had to appear in court, and they were already targeted anyway.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I half understand my colleague’s question. I thank him for it anyway. I would say that today’s debate is a very simple one. We are not talking about the death that unfortunately occurred and that will always be remembered by everyone—we are talking about an excessive law.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour to rise in this chamber. We have been saying it over and over all day, but I think that some still do not understand. In the middle of the night on October 16, hundreds of Quebeckers were arrested unfairly, arbitrarily and sometimes violently.

Canada Revenue Agency Act  Madam Speaker, we are here today to once again debate the bill to amend the Canada Revenue Agency Act with regard to organ donors. This bill comes from the member for Calgary Confederation, who first introduced it in 2015. It was known then as Bill C-316, and it went as far as first reading in the Senate in late 2018.

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. We can argue back and forth across the House. The government decided to prorogue Parliament. As for the Conservatives, they unfortunately delayed the passage of the bill. This is the third time we are debating this bill, and we all hope it will be the last.

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I thank the hon. member for the question. I very much believe in taking things one step at at time. There is nothing grandiose about this bill. It is important, essential, and will bring us up to date with the times. It is clear that a lot of other changes could be made when it comes to training judges.

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, we are here today to again debate the Judges Act and the Criminal Code. Bill C-3 amends the Judges Act to restrict eligibility for judicial appointment to persons who undertake to participate in continuing education on matters related to sexual assault law and social context.

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, my question is quite simple: Given the importance of this bill and the fact that all parties seem relatively in favour of it, does my esteemed colleague believe it would be important for the vote to be unanimous or at least very strong?

Judges Act  Madam Speaker, I congratulate the member for her speech. I thought it was heartfelt, profound and deeply personal, which is something we do not often see in the House. I commend her for that. I think that almost everyone in the House agrees on this bill, but I do want to ask her a quick question.

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I congratulate my colleague from Kitchener Centre. We all really appreciated his speech. The only problem is that the government does not seem to be walking the talk. I would like to get his opinion. He spoke with great pride about the environment, which is very important to the Bloc Québécois as well.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Yes, Madam Speaker. The French interpretation is back online, but it was offline for at least five minutes.

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, I found the speech by my colleague from Kingston and the Islands unsettling. He tried to justify the throne speech's unjustifiable interference in matters under provincial jurisdiction. My colleagues and I consider that interference unacceptable. It is annoying, inappropriate and deeply disrespectful.
