Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, unfortunately we have another sad example of a Conservative Party member dragging, through the mud, our great Canadian creators, who are wildly renowned around the world.

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, Bill C-10 aims to level the playing field between creators and web giants, and I continue to be baffled by the fact that the Conservative Party of Canada has decided to side with some of the wealthiest and most powerful companies in the world, against our Canadian artists in this country and our musicians.

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, I am always pleased to respond to the requests of the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage.
