Health  Mr. Speaker, next week marks the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. Once again, the government issued statements of concern, but we see little or no action to back up these concerns. The Liberals promised in the last election to remove the five-year

Department of Public Works and Government Services Act  Madam Speaker, it gives me great pride to rise today in support of Bill C-354, proposed by the member for South Okanagan—West Kootenay. I am pretty sure there are a few mountains in that part of Canada, and because I made a promise to a childhood friend, which I could not keep,

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour to table petitions and to help citizens' voices be heard in Parliament. Today I am tabling two petitions. The first petition is from citizens who oppose the Kinder Morgan pipeline.

Public Transportation  Mr. Speaker, last Friday, I rose in the chamber to ask again what the government was doing, and the reply from the government was: ...we understand that having an efficient and functional transportation system is absolutely critical. We need to work together. We have to work to

Public Transportation  Mr. Speaker, in January, I asked a question in the House about the hardship brought on by the closure of the Saskatchewan Transportation Company a year ago this month, and was encouraged when the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development replied: As the member kn

Canada Labour Code  Madam Speaker, I would like to reiterate the fact that many of the speakers this afternoon have talked about legislation and regulation as important steps, but that a cultural change on Parliament Hill, within our workplaces, is the work that we all still need to be doing. I wond

Public Transportation  Mr. Speaker, it has been one year since STC was shut down, and the people of Saskatchewan are still without access to safe, affordable, public transportation. After saying it would work with me to address this issue in a meaningful way, the silence from the government is deafen

Health  Mr. Speaker, I want to ask my colleague to hold his government to account. It is unconscionable, given the statistics, to remove a third of the funding for these programmes without any real explanation or any other replacement in place. In the face of the undeniable evidence that

Health  Mr. Speaker, it pains me to once again ask the government about its commitment to health funding in my home province of Saskatchewan. Five months ago, on World AIDS Day, I asked the government if it would declare a public health state of emergency in Saskatchewan, as our doctor

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, it is not enough for the Liberals to tell Canadians they are going to implement pharmacare, or ask Canadians to just trust them, or tell Canadians they are going to have an advisory committee but it takes a long time, that kind of thing. It would really be helpfu

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I guess I will thank my hon. colleague across the way for his comments, although he did not quite reflect what I said. What I had talked about is that the majority of the new investment into housing is coming after the next federal election. Of the $40 billion I ha

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I guess what I am saying is there is not enough in this omnibus budget for the residents in my riding, in particular for those women I met at the Trade Journey program. I am not denying that the Canada child benefit has helped people. However, the program does not
