Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I have one question. In other discussions in the House, the member for St. Catharines read into Hansard the definition of hate crime. The definition that he read said that hate crimes were actions that would incite violence against persons. Would the member's bill

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very fine speech. Every day in the House the government says one thing but does another. The Liberals have broken many of their promises and this bill is just another example of that. What changes would the hon. member like to see ma

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 1  Madam Speaker, with respect to the parental leave adjustment, the same amount of benefit would be taken and spread over 18 months, which means that people would have to live on a third of their salaries. That really is not going to be very helpful. I am the chair of the status o

House debate  Mr. Speaker, it seems as if the Liberal government is pretending that the issue is that nobody wants to modernize or that people are resistant to modernizing. I was here when we had the debate on the Standing Orders and heard all kinds of ideas, good ideas, on how we might chang

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, my colleague is always so eloquent and informed when he speaks. I am struck by the hypocrisy that I continually hear in this debate. The government is bringing a message that we are having a conversation. This is so misleading to Canadians. There is a motion that i

Points of Order  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order, the Minister of Science today indicated that I had a new interest in science. It is a matter of public record that for more than 40 years I have been a supporter of science as a professional engineer, as a fellow of Engineers Canada.

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, it is obvious that no research was done on Canada 2020. It is basically Liberal advertising that cost Canadian taxpayers $20,000. Given that the scientific community has found that more funding is needed for research, how can we be sure that the Liberals are not wa

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, the interest is why we are spending research funding dollars for infomercials to promote the Liberals. It seems the best way to talk to the Liberal front bench is to cut a cheque to Liberal insiders. SSHRC gave $20,000 of research funding money to Canada 2020 for a

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243  Mr. Speaker, I spent a lot of time in the member's riding, in Kingston, when I was at Queen's. The need is evident for greater maternity leave flexibility and benefits, and I would spend zero more dollars from the government studying that particular issue. What the strategy shou

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243  Mr. Speaker, while it is my honest desire to review the Hansard of every committee here on the Hill, that is not always possible. I take my colleague's word that he presented this before the committee, had the discussion, did not receive the answer he was looking for, and so is

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243  Mr. Speaker, my colleague has been a tireless advocate for issues affecting women, from pay equity on up, and is a wonderful member of our committee.

Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to rise today and speak to my hon. colleague's motion. I am a little disappointed that I was not able to speak to what I was originally here to speak to, which was the motion regarding gender-based analysis, because I brought the report that our comm

Government Appointments  Mr. Speaker, first there was the appointment to the Halifax Port Authority in exchange for the Minister of Finance's cash for access donation.

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I need to weigh in on this question of parliamentary privilege, but I will be concise in recognition of the time. I do not claim to be as educated on the rules of the House as the many members who have spoken before me, so I trust you, Mr. Speaker, to make the judg
