Elections Modernization Act  Mr. Speaker, I apologize for having to ask about the time I had available to me a few minutes ago. We switched between two different items, and I was not sure whether I had 10 minutes or 20 minutes. I have since confirmed with the table, and I see you signalling as well, that it

Committees of the House  moved that the 23rd report of the Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs, presented on Monday, March 6, 2017, be concurred in. Mr. Speaker, just to be clear, I have been away for a week. I believe I have 10 minutes at this point. Is that the speaking slot, or is it 20

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, then I will be twice as eloquent. If we multiply that by the longer length of time, we may well find four times the benefit that we would have had if I had had only 10 minutes to speak. Let me start by welcoming the minister to the House. I see her here today. If I

Gord Brown  Mr. Speaker, here are six things you might not know about our friend and colleague, Gord Brown. Number one, Gord was so Conservative, he often wore blue shoes in the Commons. True story. They looked pretty sharp, too. Number two, Gord's oldest son, Chance, was born in November

Captain Roy Brown  Mr. Speaker, this Saturday will mark the centenary of the most famous aerial combat of all time, in which Canadian pilot Captain Roy Brown shot down Manfred von Richthofen, Germany's illustrious Red Baron.

House debate  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order. It is, of course, entirely appropriate when we have proceedings that go on for the better part of a day and possibly, eventually, more than a day, to relax the rules about what people bring into the House to eat and so on. I remember that you ch

An Act to Change the Name of the Electoral District of Châteauguay-Lacolle  Mr. Speaker, while this is really interesting, I fail to find the connection between this and the riding name change that is being proposed in the legislation.

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, the idea that people do not go to people they know, people who are their friends, people they have done business with and who have a high regard for them to seek donations, would be one that would exclude anybody who has a business background from either making a don

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, first, I thank the minister for her kind words. I am confident that my colleague who has taken over the roll will perform as well as and possibly better than I did. Some might say that is an easy bar to clear. I will respond to the substantive question this way. I d

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I want to address Bill C-50 by articulating what I believe is its central purpose, which is not to remedy an absence in the law that has resulted in unlawful behaviour. Rather, it is to deal with an issue that was never unlawful; it was something that did not pass th

Business of the House  Mr. Speaker, there have been discussions among the parties, and I hope you will find the unanimous consent of the House for the following motion that the House recognize that acts of violence and bigotry directed against religious believers, such as the June 23, 1985, bombing of

Victims of Anti-Religious Violence  Mr. Speaker, continuing in the same spirit as the last statement, one year ago today, six Muslims were murdered and 19 more were wounded while at prayer in Quebec City. I believe the best way to honour the martyrs of January 29 is to mark the anniversary of this tragedy by commem

Canada Elections Act  Madam Speaker, I found the comments and proposals by my colleague from Laurentides—Labelle to be a good deal more interesting than those in the bill we are discussing.

Canada Elections Act  Someone suggested that the dinosaur connection is to the Conservatives, and I would point out that the Liberals at the time closely resembled trilobites. At that time, the dinosaurs who ruled were the vast institutions, companies that could contribute large amounts of money, phe
