COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters Madam Chair, two weeks ago the Prime Minister went on a campaign-style tour of Ottawa small businesses and stopped at the Big Rig Brewery. On that very same day, they applied for and received a licence to produce hand sanitizer. What is the average delay for a hand sanitizer lic
COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Matters Madam Chair, what I'm saying is that the average is much longer than the same-day delivery service they received at Big Rig. Does the Minister believe that a PM's photo op is a good reason to prefer one business owner over another?

Business of Supply Madam Speaker, toward the end of last year, we grew at 0.1% to 0.3%. That will almost certainly make our debt-to-GDP ratio go up. We are spending billions of dollars. I do not think it is unreasonable to say that if we did not have our sizeable $30-billion deficit and a declining
Business of Supply Madam Speaker, to the member's comment, no, I will not be making CBC News tonight in talking out against the TMX. I will agree wholeheartedly with the member that it was a foolish move for the government to purchase it. When the government selects winners and losers in the econo

Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, I congratulate the hon. member on his excellent comments and his bid at comedy. I will be splitting my time with the hon. member for Kootenay—Columbia. In all seriousness, we are facing an economic crisis. The TSX dropped over 1,600 points today. It is serious. Wh
Criminal Code Madam Speaker, all of the speeches in the House come from a great place. On my side of the House we value life, and that is meritorious. We have heard other perspectives that talk about ending suffering and that truly has merit, so I appreciate all of the speeches that have taken
