Tourism Industry Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Cloverdale—Langley City for his hard work. Not one week goes by without him talking to me about tourism. After being abandoned by the Conservatives, the 1.8 million workers in the tourism sector know that we have their backs.
Official Languages Mr. Speaker, francophones in Ontario and across the country know full well that our government is there for them. It was the Conservatives who let them down and decided to protect Doug Ford in Ontario, rather than protecting francophones across the country. It goes without sayin

Budget Implementation Act, 2019, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, in 2015, Canadians had a difficult but clear choice to make.

Budget Implementation Act, 2019, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I would like to offer my congratulations to my hon. colleague. It is a pleasure to see him in the House.

Budget Implementation Act, 2019, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, I would like to mention for my colleague that he has two in one, a minister of finance and the Minister of Tourism, Official Languages and La Francophonie.

Budget Implementation Act, 2019, No. 1 Mr. Speaker, access to home ownership is very important.
