Committees of the House Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present, in both official languages, the fourth report of the Standing Committee on the Status of Women, entitled, “Implementing Gender-Based Analysis Plus in the Government of Canada”.

Main Estimates 2016-17 Madam Speaker, “If I had a million dollars”, I would buy a hospice that could give palliative care to Canadians; I would buy youth shelter infrastructure for $350,000, which we need in Sarnia—Lambton. I am offended. When the offices were given out, we had to wait for the party w

Health Mr. Speaker, I rise on a question of privilege. The Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development has just talked about introducing a new innovation consultation, and he said he did it in an open and transparent way. That is not at all true. This is the first I have he

Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, certainly I want to give a big thumbs up. The minister of science and I worked very hard to come up with a science strategy that is very good for Canada. It emphasizes the good things that were in place under the previous government, and alongside additional fundamen
Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I feel that with the current Liberal government, the fossil fuel area is under siege. It is not just that we have lost hundreds of thousands of jobs in this area. Now the carbon taxes that are coming to this industry will make us uncompetitive. We need to keep in m
Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, as someone who was a youth leader for over 30 years and a camp director, any time we are doing something good for children, I am happy about it. We can argue about what the approach is. The previous government was putting together not just the universal child care b
Palliative Care Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to share with my fellow parliamentarians that since being introduced in the House of Commons on May 30, my private member's Bill C-277, An Act providing for the development of a framework on palliative care in Canada, has gained support across the nation
Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time today with the member for Edmonton Riverbend. It is said that if one wants to bring constructive criticism, one should make a sandwich; say something positive, then bring the criticism, then finish off with something else positive. That is
Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for his speech. When he was talking about broken promises, I started to reflect on all the broken promises: not holding the deficit to $10 billion, the cost-neutral middle-class income tax, the home delivery. I wonder if the m
Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I would like to share the hon. member's tribute to Gordie Howe, who was one of the greatest hockey players of all time. I am concerned about young people who want to rise up and become the next Gordie Howe. I wonder if the member could comment on why his government
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Mr. Speaker, my riding has been waiting five months for the arrival of Syrian refugee families. Local groups have raised money and paid rent on housing. The Liberals' inaction has cost my constituents over $10,000, and they are frustrated. While many government-sponsored refuge
Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, my question for the hon. member is simple. Can she provide a fact- and evidence-based argument as to why the murder of more than a million Christians in Syria and Iraq does not constitute a genocide?
Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, I really liked hearing the definition of genocide. I thought that was very helpful in making it clear. I wonder if my colleague could reflect on that and provide some examples to show that it has really occurred.
Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, I am happy to hear the hon. member say that this is genocide. There used to be 1.5 million Christians in Iraq in 2003 and now there are less than 200,000. More than a million people have been killed. Certainly, that is a genocide on any scale. Similar stories could b
