Privilege  Yes, Mr. Speaker, I am prepared to do that. To further clarify the situation for the member for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, I did not accuse the minister of conflict of interest. If he reads the question he will see that I did not do that. I did not say that anyone was co-opted

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I did not hear all of the minister's comments, but what I am saying is that there is a conflict of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest. I said that it was done knowingly or unknowingly. I am asking for the minister's clarification. I would like to pu

Members Of Parliament Retiring Allowances Act  Mr. Speaker, this will serve to keep the ratio of government to member contribution very high. The member for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell talked yesterday of openness, honesty and sincerity. There is not a scintilla of veracity in what the government is telling Canadians about th

Members Of Parliament Retiring Allowances Act  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to participate in the debate on the issue of MPs pensions.

Indian Affairs  Mr. Speaker, it would be refreshing to have the minister stop attacking the Reform Party every time he is asked a question. He could start being a professional manager. The minister has given conflicting reports as to when he knew about the overcutting at Stoney Reserve. Did he

Indian Affairs  Mr. Speaker, this morning the minister of Indian affairs clarified his conflicting answers on the series of events on the Stoney Reserve. It is now evident the minister did not seriously investigate this ongoing situation until after yesterday's question period. I have now heard

Indian Affairs  Mr. Speaker, my question follows the question from my leader and is for the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. I would like to quickly say that we foster sensible dialogue, and in our aboriginal town halls in British Columbia offered a very welcome and refreshi
