Accessible Canada Act  Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to rise today and speak to Bill C-81, the barrier-free Canada act. This proposed act aims to make Canada more accessible for all people but especially for those with physical or developmental disabilities. An act like this is essentially good. It work

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, I rise today to speak to Bill C-93. The bill has come forth as a result of the government's lack of foresight in its hurried quest to legalize marijuana. The bill was so rushed to meet the Prime Minister's self-imposed political deadline that it fails to address a

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, a concept has been put forward by the member opposite, but certainly not the practice that is currently in place. We have seen time and again the heavy hand of the PMO and the Liberal members pressing down on committees. We need look no further than the interferenc

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, this is one of many messes left behind by the Liberal government that the Conservatives will be required and prepared to clean up.

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, what is my colleague's perception and what feedback has he heard from stakeholders, including police associations and other groups, about the ability of police to do their jobs and for law enforcement agencies to protect against drug-impaired driving?

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister's sunny climate plan was supposed to save the environment and boost the economy. Well, it did neither. In reality, all it did was punish Canadians for getting groceries, driving the kids to hockey or even running small businesses. In reality, the

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, I will be sharing my time with my neighbour to the north, the member for Lanark—Frontenac—Kingston. I rise in the House today to speak to Bill C-93.

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, I share the shock and surprise of my colleague. It is unbelievable. The rush to get things done comes out of the government now realizing that it has run out of runway and it wants to have a few things on the achievement list after a pretty rough spring for Canada

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, I find it interesting that the parliamentary secretary would say there has not been an increase in impaired driving cases. The Liberals have not even given the police the tools necessary to detect if impaired driving has occurred. The equipment that they approved i

Criminal Records Act  Madam Speaker, I have had the pleasure of visiting the riding of Kootenay—Columbia and it is, indeed, quite wonderful, although I did not visit any cannabis-growing farms. Bill C-93, in its current form, is flawed. The amendments proposed at committee by industry in response to

Telecommunications  Madam Speaker, we have heard the same answer from those Liberals about the Eastern Ontario Regional Network project and its inaction after four weeks of non-answers. The province has already committed $71 million to fund it. This project will save lives by connecting first resp

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, my riding of Leeds—Grenville—Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes is served by the Eastern Ontario Wardens' Caucus, which has developed a working group, the Eastern Ontario Regional Network.

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals' carbon tax has made life more expensive for Canadians. It has raised the price of everything, including buying groceries, driving the kids to hockey or dance and even the luxury of home heating. Canadians are being punished for living life in Canada. T
