Salaries Act Mr. Speaker, I do not think it was deliberate, but the member has misled this Parliament or he is ill informed. In fact, the previous government realized that Canadians were living longer and working longer. Therefore, the Conservatives suggested that the age of eligibility be ra
Salaries Act Mr. Speaker, I would agree with the member. There is a lot of rhetoric. It is unfortunate that the truth is not coming out. Canadians knows where the Conservative Party stands. Canadians know where the NDP stands. Canadians do not know where the Liberal government stands. The Lib
Salaries Act Mr. Speaker, it is a real honour to speak on this important piece of legislation, which is terribly flawed, and hopefully the government will listen. Before I speak to Bill C-24, the previous Liberal speaker shared with this House, with great gusto, that he was shocked about a q
Christmas Mr. Speaker, the Christmas season is here with wonderful music and beautiful decorations. This is the Christmas story: And there were...shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2 Mr. Speaker, I believe all of us have a responsibility to be available to our constituents, to listen to our constituents, and to represent our constituents. I introduced a motion that a meeting be dedicated to study job opportunities for youth and taking care of our aging popula
Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2 Mr. Speaker, the travel to Brussels, Latvia, and Ukraine in nine days was a wonderful, edifying, educating experience. It was a brutal trip where there was no stopping. It was go, go, go, and many of us came back sick. Was it ever educational. It was an amazing trip that came on
Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2 Mr. Speaker, I would encourage the Liberal member to listen for a moment. He asked his question. I appreciated that trip, but that travel does not happen every year. In the last Parliament we had a trip on accessibility and the Liberals wanted to travel some more. They did it la
Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2 Mr. Speaker, that is a big question and the big answer is the Liberals are not spending wisely the dollars that are sent here in trust by hard-working Canadian taxpayers. Canadians want Parliament to do a better job. They want this Parliament to vote against the way the Liberal
Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2 Mr. Speaker, it is a real honour to be able to speak in the House on this important issue, and Canadians are engaged on this issue. Canadians are realizing the serious problem that Canada has with a government that has a serious spending problem. The spending problem is actually
Human Resources committee Chair, if there were a study on seniors and all the issues related to seniors, including accessibility, then I think this would be very worthwhile travel, but what we've heard from Mr. Cuzner is that this has already been done in the last Parliament. That's what Canadians object
Human Resources committee Chair, which travel are you referring to?
Human Resources committee On which topic is that?
Human Resources committee Chair, to speak to that, we have to be very careful how we spend taxpayers' dollars. There is to be what has been referred to as a bit of a boondoggle out in front of the Prime Minister's office, a skating rink. That's not a good use of dollars, and travelling is not necessary, s
Human Resources committee To respond to Mr. Ruimy, I think everybody—I would trust that everybody—supports looking at ways to help people who have a disability that creates accessibility problems. I think it's good that we look at that. Actually having to travel and spend taxpayers' dollars, over $100,000
