Main Estimates, 2017-18 Mr. Speaker, I listened intently, and it was a very interesting speech, although not quite on topic. We are here to talk about the estimates. I did find the member's perspective interesting with respect to acknowledging the high quality of the appointments of senators. What baf

Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act Madam Speaker, it is an honour to speak on Bill S-226, a very important piece of legislation.

Excise Tax Act Mr. Speaker, the best way to deal with that is to send Bill C-342 to committee to make sure it can be applied fairly so that all provinces benefit equally. The only way that can be ensured is if it goes to committee and is studied and, if necessary, amended. I am open to amendmen
Excise Tax Act Mr. Speaker, the member is missing the point. The point is it is fundamentally unfair to charge a tax on a tax. The member is trying to rewrite history. I was also a member of council for 14 years before coming here for 13 years federally. It was the Chrétien Liberal government d
Excise Tax Act moved that Bill C-342, An Act to amend the Excise Tax Act (carbon levy), be read the second time and referred to a committee. Mr. Speaker, it is truly a great honour to have the privilege to introduce a private member's bill. One of the first things that happens in Parliament
Taxation Mr. Speaker, there they go again, protecting the criminals. When the Prime Minister introduced his mandatory “Ottawa knows best” carbon tax, he promised Canadians it would be federally revenue neutral. That is not true. Research from the Library of Parliament clearly shows that
Human Resources committee Is it possible that there might have been funds available to help the lady in the situation in the example that I gave?
Human Resources committee Good. Thank you very much.
Human Resources committee Thank you, Chair. Thank you to the witnesses for being here. I'm going to focus my comments and questions on outcomes, practical ways of meeting the needs.
