Canadian Heritage  Madam Speaker, I would remind my colleague that Bill C-10 is the result of the Yale report, issued by a commission that worked for over 18 months and received 2,000 submissions from across the country. Furthermore, Bill C-10 is supported by the entire arts community across the c

Canadian Heritage  Madam Speaker, the Conservative Party is attacking our artists and artisans. Every month that goes by, the Conservative Party is depriving Canada's artistic community of $70 million. Bill C-10 will make web giants pay. I do not understand why the Conservative Party has decided to

Broadcasting Act  Madam Speaker, the fourth point I want to make, one that my colleague raised earlier, has to do with freedom of expression. We had an independent analysis done by public servants at the Department of Justice that found that Bill C-10 is entirely consistent with—

Broadcasting Act  Madam Speaker, as I was saying, during the next 11 meetings of the committee, which is when the Conservative Party started systematically obstructing the work of the committee, only seven amendments were studied or voted on. At this rate, it would likely take more than six months

Broadcasting Act  Madam Speaker, I would first like to point out that the premise of my colleague from Richmond—Arthabaska is absolutely incorrect. First of all, as the Minister of Canadian Heritage, I am not the one who decides what changes are made at committee; it is the committee itself that

Bills of Exchange Act  Madam Speaker, as I said the first time that Bill C-5 was introduced to the House, I recognize all of the work done by Madame Jolibois on all of this. In fact, the bill does reflect what had been tabled during the last Parliament. As the member well knows, the Senate is an inde

Bills of Exchange Act  Madam Speaker, in my view, and I think in the view of most member, reconciliation is a path and journey that we are taking with first nations, Inuit and Métis people. There are a number of things that we as government, as the Crown, need to do on that path to reconciliation. Thi

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, I am rather shocked by my hon. colleague's question. I did not hear the Bloc Québécois speak out in forums all across the country against the Conservative Party and in support of Bill C-10. I spoke with over 4,000 artists from across the country over the last few mo

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for the question. We have been working hard for months to get Bill C-10 passed. We have defended it at every forum across the country, while the Conservative Party has been fearmongering by spreading misinformation. We have worked with the

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, I profoundly disagree with the basis of the hon. member's question, as does the Department of Justice Canada. Its analysts confirmed that Bill C-10 remains consistent with the charter's guarantee of freedom of speech. Bill C-10 is about levelling the playing field
