Elizabeth May, Member of Parliament for Saanich-Gulf Islands: Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise today in the House. I start by acknowledging we are on the traditional territory of the Algonquin peoples. The trans-Pacific partnership agreement has had a convoluted and somewhat rocky road. I think we would all admit that. I would ...

Kennedy Stewart – Member for Burnaby South Mr. Speaker, this is my last week in the House of Commons, and this will be my last petition that I present on stopping the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Citizens of Burnaby have signed this petition, immediately calling on the government to prevent this new pipeline from proceeding through ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I have a second petition. This was put together by citizens of Canada. Some people do not recognize that our petition process can accept signatures from those under 18 years of age. This petition comes from Salt Spring Elementary School. The petitioners ask the government to reconsider spending $7.4 billion on ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, I want to return to this issue. It is obviously controversial in this chamber. Why is it that big oil has been exiting the oil sands? There is no question it has been. There is Marathon, Total, Statoil, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips, and Imperial Oil. I want to read the hon. member two ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, in the past I practised environmental law for a while and I have worked in the environmental field for a long time and I am quite familiar with laws in other countries. It is unlikely that the hon. member will take my word for it, but Canada does not have the ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I suppose we agree that the bill is flawed, but I want to correct a few things. There were at least two opposition amendments accepted. I still cannot vote for Bill C-69, but I want to make sure that people know that, on the recommendation of Professor Martin Olszynski, who was ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it was one of my great fears when the first draft consultation paper was put out about repairing the damage and restoring the original Navigable Waters Protection Act that it looked as though we might just hold to a schedule only. I was very gratified to find the definition had changed ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, my colleague from Timmins—James Bay made a lot of good points about this pipeline. I want to put something to the House that I do not think anyone has raised yet, and that is the financing around this, which is pretty dodgy. We have to remember that Kinder Morgan was founded ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, as much as I want to join in the conversation and keep discussing climate, in looking at Bill C-69 I really want to make a point and ask the hon. member for his commentary. We had an expert panel on EA. The government spent over $1 million to get its advice, ...
