Petitions Mr. Speaker, the second petition is in regard to vehicular homicide. The petition sadly informs the House that 22-year-old Kassandra Kaulius was tragically killed by a drunk driver, a person who chose to drive while impaired. Families for Justice are Canadians who have lost a lo
Petitions Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to present two petitions. The first addresses gender-based violence. It is very appropriate with yesterday's visit from Malala. It highlights that ultrasounds are being used to tell the sex of an unborn child, so if it is a girl the pregnancy can be t
Public Services and Procurement Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I have a report from the Library of Parliament that I seek unanimous consent to table. It is a report that clearly shows that the carbon tax is not federally revenue neutral.
Taxation Mr. Speaker, a new report reveals that the Prime Minister will take $130 million out of Alberta and B.C. this year by charging GST on top of their provincial carbon taxes. It is shocking. That is $130 million in federal taxes, despite the Prime Minister's promise that carbon pric

Human Resources committee Right now, in 2017, it does not have an effect.
Human Resources committee Correct. Thank you.
Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243 Mr. Speaker, my NDP colleague has worked very hard with us in the HUMA committee and I want to thank her for her good work. I also want to thank her for being a mom. Mother's Day is not that far away. If we did not have moms, we would not be here. We need moms and we need to prot
Instruction to Committee on Bill C-243 Mr. Speaker, that is a very relevant question. I have been here since 2004. I have been honoured to be elected five times to represent my community.
