Government Contracts Mr. Speaker, as a result of the Liberal government's performance in the previous Parliament, marred by ethical breaches and cover-ups, the Prime Minister has mandated that his ministers hold themselves to the highest ethical standards. However, now we know that they are in the pr

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to rise today to talk about this important agreement with our most important trading partners. It has been 51 days since we, the official opposition, the Conservatives, who are very concerned and seized with the economic future of our country, re
Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act Madam Speaker, we have arrived at this deal and there are so many questions, but not as to why Conservatives might have concerns.

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act Madam Speaker, truly it is a flawed process.

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act Madam Speaker, one of the members opposite talked about sovereignty.

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act I wonder if the member for Lethbridge, in spite of the interruptions, can give us some comment on that.
Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. While we are on the subject, the member for Spadina—Fort York used some language that would also fall under the same category addressed by his colleague. I am just wondering if you, Madam Speaker, would like to give him the same opport
Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, I thank the member opposite for her comments and echo her condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Can the member explain why Mr. Gallese, who has killed before and was deemed a threat specifically to women, and the member has identified that this was
