Historic Places of Canada Act  Madam Speaker, first of all, I would just like him to confirm that he did say he would like Leduc No. 1 to become a Canadian historic site. If so, would he agree that this is not the right time for that, since we are turning towards renewable energies instead? It seems to me tha

Online Streaming Act  Madam Speaker, in my life as a parliamentarian, there are things I find difficult, and one example is when either individuals or parties try to trash things that make perfect sense, simply for the sake of trashing them. The Conservatives are clearly talking here about attacks on

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I am pleased to hear our Liberal colleague say that it is up to the provinces to ensure the sound management and administration of the health care system. However, what he said about members of the Bloc Québécois is rather frustrating and offensive. He said that t

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, it is very nice to hear my colleague speaking French. His accent is excellent. I would like to once again remind him that Quebec and the provinces are the ones responsible for the health care model. The Supreme Court clearly ruled in that regard in Chaoulli. It st

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, we know that the Liberal government has introduced very few budgetary or legislative measures to try to fight inflation. We all agree on that. Fortunately or unfortunately, the Bank of Canada has had to use the monetary tool at its disposal, that is, increasing inte

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I want to wish you a happy Valentine's Day. I really appreciate you. I am feeling a bit torn.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I want to remind my colleague that ExxonMobil raked in $74 billion in profits. That is an outrage, yet the government is not lifting a finger to get any of that $74 billion back. That is the problem. The carbon tax is not a problem for individuals, it is a problem

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am not questioning the numbers. That said, we need to understand what is behind those numbers. We need to understand why bail was granted to people during trial or while awaiting trial. We need to allow time, but we need to see if there are reasonable grounds. W

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the answer is yes, absolutely. I believe in our justice system. It is not perfect, but I believe in it. Judges are not normally appointed overnight.
