Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, that is a very reasonable concern for you and the clerks to have. It is just a suggestion that might make sense. I do not see any point in moving forward unless the mover is agreeable to it and it would cause the government to change its direction. The government has

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I listened with interest to the last exchange. I might encourage my colleague from Skeena—Bulkley Valley to listen in on this as well. The government House leader, supported by the member for Mount Royal, raised concerns that this would give a kind of veto to the s

Business of Supply  No, Mr. Speaker, I am not actually proposing the amendment at this time. I am merely putting it out as a thought that might be suitable.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the government House leader has misread the motion. She expresses concern that a subcommittee with three members would be able to override the will of the House, but, as I understand it, the subcommittee, consisting of a nominee from each of the three rec

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I will attempt to keep my eye on you while I am asking this question. It may look like I am following a tennis match. I had two points to raise with my hon. colleague. First, as he noted, there are three recognized parties, and therefore we have a three-person subco

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, next week, the Falkland Islands will be on the agenda at the General Assembly of the Organization of American States. In 2013, the people of the Falkland Islands voted nearly unanimously to remain part of the United Kingdom. Representatives from the Falklands were

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, it is not my business to tell the NDP House leader his business, but I just wanted to put this thought in his head. The bill is going to go to committee whether his party votes in favour of it or not. I am going to guess that if the bill is not amended at third readi

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I would not go so far as to say that this is the worst government we have ever seen, if we are going back through Canada's entire history, because I have only been a member a Parliament for the last sixteen and a half years. I was merely commenting in comparison to t

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, being an astute observer, my hon. colleague has, I suspect, noted one or two parallels with the Ontario Liberal government, starting with all the personnel. The same people have passed over. Clearly, this fundraising practice was started by the McGuinty-Wynne Liberal

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I think this is one of these situations where the Liberals were saying, “We're not claiming we're ethical. We're just saying you're as bad as us.” First, nobody buys tickets for appreciation events. The way an appreciation event works is that the people have already

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I think that a vote by the government party will suffice in this case. With regard to the member's other question about the change to the electoral system, in committee four out of five parties came to a consensus. We came to a consensus on the fact that it would be

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, last November, the Nanos polling organization asked Canadians what they thought of cash for access or pay to play. I will just read from The Globe and Mail coverage, what the answer was. It says: A Nanos public-opinion survey, conducted for The Globe and Mail from

Canada Elections Act  As my colleague suggested, Mr. Speaker, he probably had his hand over his heart when he put this down. It reads: To be worthy of Canadians’ trust, we must always act with integrity. He gets breathless, too. This is not merely a matter of adopting the right rules, or of ens

Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, this legislation could be understood in three steps. Step number one, the Liberals come up with a fundraising system that is profoundly profitable. Step number two, the public finds out about it and it becomes profoundly unpopular. Step number three, the Liberals att

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, the minister will know that I am unique on this side of the House in being a long-time advocate of marijuana legalization, a position I have held since the beginning of my political career some 17 years ago. I am, however, finding it difficult to reconcile some of th
