Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member opposite for his advocacy in trying to prevent harassment in the workplace.

Oil Tanker Moratorium Act  Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary mentioned a list of supporters of this oil tanker ban. I noticed that the Dogwood Initiative was in that list.

Tobacco and Vaping Products Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. When it comes to excise tax, the answer was not clear in Australia.

Tobacco and Vaping Products Act  Madam Speaker, when not a single one of the amendments we bring is ever approved at committee, it is clear to me that it is partisan politics at play.

Tobacco and Vaping Products Act  Madam Speaker, it is always hard to pick just one, but if I had to, I would go with the diacetyl one, because it was something that was experienced as a serious respiratory illness.

Tobacco and Vaping Products Act  Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to speak today on Bill S-5 regarding plain packaging and vaping. Canada has come a long way in terms of smoking cessation.
