National Framework for a School Food Program Act  Madam Speaker, you are incredibly patient. We first rose on a point of order about five minutes ago to ask members to be respectful enough to talk about our colleague's bill, which is an important bill that has nothing to do with the carbon tax. I think that, out of respect for t

Jessica Bonneville  Mr. Speaker, as a former school principal, I have a great deal of respect for the workers who invest directly or indirectly in education. Guiding our young people, encouraging them to excel, to believe in their strengths and abilities is of the utmost importance. Today, I would

Canadian Aviation Regulations  Mr. Speaker, I must say that I love my work, because every day I learn something new on a variety of topics. I think that as MPs, we have an extraordinary opportunity here. The motion we are studying is a fine example of that. It is quite simple: We want to allow firefighters to

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, the federal government is pushing aside the Quebec winners of a competition for designing the monument to commemorate the mission in Afghanistan. It is relying on public consultation. In fact, the experts at Léger studied that consultation. According to them, it in n

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, it was Leger that said that. Leger is the leading polling firm, and its experts are saying that the federal government's survey was unscientific and that the results are unusable. Even Louise Arbour, a former Supreme Court justice, had to intervene last Thursday to a

Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I address the House today as an MP, but also as a trained criminologist. We are talking about Bill C‑325, an act to amend the Criminal Code and the Corrections and Conditional Release Act. I will skip ahead and confirm that the Bloc Québécois and I, obviously, will

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, the Bloc Québécois is very pleased with Bill S‑12. We are pleased with it because it puts the victims front and centre. Does my Conservative colleague think that the government can and must interfere in parole decisions to move an inmate from a maximum security inst

Affordable Housing and Groceries Act  Madam Speaker, of course the Bloc Québécois is in favour of this bill, but it will not have much impact. When it comes to housing, eliminating the goods and services tax on construction will have no impact on lowering rent. That is a concern that everyone shares. This will have

Boisbriand Photography Club  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise today in honour of the 30th anniversary of the Boisbriand photography club. The club has delivered a host of activities since 1993, including conferences, outings, contests, exhibitions and more, to teach and share knowledge about the photograph

Veterans Affairs  Mr. Speaker, it is hard to believe. The worst part is that they admit it. This is what they wrote to the Daoust team: “Despite the fact that the jury designated your concept as the winning concept of the competition...the Government of Canada has decided to select the concept dev

Veterans Affairs  Mr. Speaker, here is another example of how far Ottawa can go to push Quebec aside. The federal government held a competition to design a monument to commemorate the role of our soldiers in Afghanistan. A jury of experts decided that the Daoust team in Quebec won. However, the L

Employment Insurance Act  Mr. Speaker, I first want to welcome you and all my colleagues from every party back to the House. I rise today on Bill C-318, an act to amend the Employment Insurance Act and the Canada Labour Code, regarding a very specific topic: adoptive and intended parents. The Liberal go

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, there are often peculiar components to the Conservatives' motions. The motion itself is interesting. It reads well. The Conservatives are asking for a plan and the Bloc Québécois agrees with that. The disappointing part is that the motion is based on premises or w

Online News Act  Madam Speaker, I am rather shocked by my colleague's comments. I do not know what his point is. My colleague is currently questioning freedom of the press and freedom of expression. There is nothing about that in Bill C‑18. That does not make sense. Since he likes quotes, I wi

Veterans  Madam Speaker, Veterans Affairs Canada has a backlog of 8,365 disability claims. These 8,365 claims exceed the already long service standard of 16 weeks. The Parliamentary Budget Officer presented the solution in 2020, however. Ottawa needed to hire just 400 permanent employees,
