Infrastructure  Mr. Speaker, I want to start by thanking the member for Brome—Missisquoi for his question and his excellent work. I was in Bécancour recently to announce a joint investment of $4.6 million with the province to replace the current wastewater treatment system and build a new pumpi

Infrastructure  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague. She is so enthusiastic that perhaps she could help me paint the bridge. Indeed, it is an important project. It is a heritage structure for the people of Quebec City. I can assure my colleague and all MPs from the greater Quebec City area that

Employment  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased that my Bloc Québécois colleague asked us this question because, as the Canadians watching us know, we are the ones who stood up to give the workers, pensioners and suppliers who have nothing to do with this whole situation a voice here. We will continu

Infrastructure  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question and for her interest in the Quebec Bridge. For the past six months, I have been engaged in intense discussions with the various partners involved to come up with a permanent solution for the Quebec Bridge. My message to the peop

Employment  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. We on this side of the House will always stand up for workers across the country. Of course we can stand up for workers, pensioners and suppliers while obeying all rules of law. The real issue, for Canadians watching us today

Justice  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. We can absolutely stand up for the workers, suppliers and retirees of a company like SNC-Lavalin while at the same time complying with ethics rules and all of the other legal rules surrounding these discussions. On this side o

Justice  Mr. Speaker, let me be clear. In our parliamentary system, we can represent the interests of workers, retirees, suppliers and any Canadian company while complying with the ethics and legal rules surrounding these discussions. We will always stand up for workers, we will always s

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Louis-Saint-Laurent, whom I very much respect. We cross paths often. I am sure everyone will understand why I would ignore what the Conservative leader says in favour of what the Premier of Quebec said about this approach potentially causi

François-Philippe Champagne

Business of Supply  With all due respect, I am going to rely less on the Conservative leader, who has never been to Shawinigan, and more on the person in charge of the tax centre, the union president and the people who work there. They tell me the Conservatives' proposal is unthinkable because it wo

Business of Supply  Let me make this clear: no Quebecker should stand up in the House to say things that could jeopardize good jobs in the regions.

François-Philippe Champagne

Business of Supply  Personally, I have high hopes for the regions, and I hope all the other MPs do too. I am not saying every proposal would have that effect. I am saying we should not even say things that could jeopardize those kinds of jobs in the regions because every job is precious and represen

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Trois-Rivières. Obviously, people will listen to him. Anything is possible. I find it interesting to hear the NDP talk about unions. I met with the president of the national union yesterday. Union representatives Normand Pelletier and Michè

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague, for whom I have a great deal of respect, for allowing me to say that yes, we must work with the Premier of Quebec to see what can be done. I want to come back to the building that was announced yesterday. It is a new building, 20,000 square met

Business of Supply  Some of my colleagues may laugh, but I can say that, if they had been in the chamber yesterday, they would have seen the 1,600 workers laugh at them, because they understood that the truth is that what we need is people who will fight to keep jobs in the regions. I cannot imagine

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I will speak for about 20 minutes to talk about the motion moved by the Conservative Party that is being defended by colleagues from Quebec. As a Quebecker, that surprises me. I want to thank the member for Mégantic—L'Érable for his remarks during question period. H
