Standing Orders of the House of Commons  Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary is using Orwellian newspeak to try to explain why he is doing the Prime Minister's dirty work of permanently shutting down Parliament on Fridays, permanently limiting debate, and trying not to show up for work. The government House leader,

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, this is not a question of opinion on how things should go. The minister just admitted that she actually engaged in an intimidation tactic to try to get the opposition House leader to acquiesce to her command. In her admission that she, in her superior position, felt

Privilege  Yes, a point of order on decorum, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, in the member for Don Valley East's tweet, she accused the opposition of being infantile while she was taking pictures of us and actually being in violation of the Standing Orders. Actually, as a point of clarification

Points of Order  Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Our purpose during question period is to question the government and hold it to account. After asking the question today, the government House leader looked at me and said, “I'm going to get you for this”. In that sense, I believe my privi

Democratic Reform  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister purports to be a feminist, yet when a strong, confident woman dares to question his arrogance and unilaterally changing the fundamentals of Canadian democracy, he tried to stare her down and yell at her. Will this so-called feminist stand up and ap

Public Safety  Mr. Speaker, one could argue that the time for monitoring has passed and the time for action is now, because we know that illegal border crossings are increasing with no end in sight. What is of more concern right now is we are going to see this trend increase as warmer weather

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, to be honest, I only heard part of my colleague's question. I heard him talk a little about corporate taxes. What I wanted to emphasize to the House was that under our former government, while the federal tax burden was at its lowest level in over 50 years, we actu

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is always a pleasure to rise in this House, and specifically today to speak to this motion. I have a good friend. She is a young woman who is just finishing her university degree. She sent me a Snapchat which said, “Do something to stop the Prime Minister from t

Operation UNIFIER  Mr. Chair, any time a Liberal, especially a rookie member of Parliament from the Liberal Party, stands in the House of Commons and decries any sort of defence funding, I would ask him to look to his colleagues, who have consistently voted against any sort of expenditure increase

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, our government responsibly prevented taxpayers from paying a quarter of a billion dollars in false refugee claims. Therefore, with taxpayers on the hook for this giant increase in refugee claims and a flood of illegal migrants at the American border, the public safet
