Davie Shipyard  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals like to strut around the Davie shipyard in Lévis and make fine promises. Once the photos have been taken, they slip away without doing anything for the shipyard's workers and suppliers. However, the Canadian Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Navy have

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I have a question for my colleague, but I would like to start by reminding him that the vaccines slated for distribution in the U.K. next week are being made in Belgium. I think the people tuning in are wondering when Canada will take action and when the Liberal g

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, there is absolutely nothing for workers in the shipbuilding industry in the Liberals' economic statement, even though there is a need. The Royal Canadian Navy needs a modern icebreaker to ensure Canada's sovereignty in the Arctic Archipelago. It is time for the Libe

Official Languages  Mr. Speaker, it is obvious that, despite their claims, the Liberals care very little about the status of French in Quebec. Yesterday at the Standing Committee on Government Operations, we obtained confirmation not only that the Treasury Board's rules were not respected in the co

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague. I see that he paid close attention to my speech, and I want to say to him that the Conservatives supported measures to help people during the pandemic.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, one vision that we have as Conservatives is that we do not like the approach of “Ottawa knows best”. Actually, we believe that the expertise is in the provinces, just as it is in Quebec and Ontario or elsewhere in the country. We feel that provinces are best place

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I will be sharing my time with my colleague from British Columbia, the member for Kamloops—Thompson—Cariboo. I would have liked to ask the Liberal minister a question. We are in the midst of a pandemic, and it is true that the environment we live in is disrupted.

Official Languages  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are using their white paper on official languages to buy time until the next election. Meanwhile, they are holding communities hostage. The Fédération des communautés francophones et acadienne and the Quebec Community Groups Network want this. Will th
