Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I have a second petition. This was put together by citizens of Canada.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I think the debate around jobs needs to bear in mind that the number one goal of the labour unions of northern Alberta, the Alberta Federation of Labour and Unifor, is to protect jobs. However, it should be noted that these organizations are against the Kinder Morgan expansion. We know they ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague, the member for King—Vaughan for the wonderful work she does as chair of the environment committee.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, there are a number of points in my friend from Bow River’s presentation that require a bit of a fact check. There is a big difference on the west coast of B.C., particularly between Haida Gwaii and the coast. Hecate Strait particularly is an extremely active body of water. There is ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, my hon. colleague from Lakeland referenced the decision to abort the energy east pipeline and blamed the government for that. Energy east was being built by the same company, TransCanada, that is also building Keystone. It made a business decision that two pipelines, both shipping bitumen diluted with diluent for export, ...

Guest Column/ Elizabeth May Policy Magazine   When Canadians used to speak of two solitudes, it meant the divide between Quebec and the rest of Canada.
