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. Increasingly, I feel that I live in a different country, only the dividing line is the Rockies, and the cultural disconnect is over the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Here is ...

Elizabeth May I want to start by thanking Darren and other Liberal members of the committee who agreed to allow me to put a question to the minister. I thank both ministers for being here. Preparing for this morning, I reviewed your mandate letters and found that the Prime Minister used identical language in the ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I am speaking tonight in adjournment proceedings and the timing is almost impossible to believe.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, this bill is very similar to one introduced earlier this session by the hon. member for London—Fanshawe. It carries some of the same characteristics, but it is different. I have been working on it for some time, because VIA Rail lacks the legislative framework, a context within which we can ensure ...
