Mr. Speaker, I certainly support Bill C-98. I share the views around this place that it is lamentable that it has come forward now. I just wanted to share a brief experience, which chilled me to the bone, of how this country can treat people. This was in the 41st Parliament. Richard Germaine is an indigenous ...

Mr. Speaker, I apologize to my hon. colleague from Abbotsford for being out of the chamber for parts of his remarks, so he may have addressed this. What targets does the Conservative Party currently think are appropriate? If we look at the IPCC report on why we must hold global average temperature to more than ...

Mr. Speaker, I will vote for the NDP motion. We are in a climate emergency. I will also vote for the Liberal motion. We are in a climate emergency. That requires less partisanship. With all due respect to the hon. member for Burnaby South, I need clarification, because I did not hear him say in ...

Madam Speaker, I am rising today to pursue a question that I asked initially in question period on March 18. That date was only three days after the quite extraordinary Friday climate strike at schools across Canada. Schoolchildren joined millions of other children around the world on March 15 for a global school strike for ...

Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the Minister of Fisheries for commenting on other actions. I support Bill C-55, but I cannot support the continual use of time allocation. We have seen a steady increase in its use in this place. It was shocking when it happened under the previous government. I have bemoaned this over and ...

Madam Speaker, I want to put on the record that I will vote for Bill C-55, the Oceans Act, as it comes back to this place. This is probably my only opportunity to say something I have been wanting to say for awhile, which is that we owe so much to the former minister of fisheries, ...

I thank those members who are applauding this historic day. I speak for myself and for many Canadians from coast to coast to coast when I say we are very grateful for the assistance of the hon. Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, the assistance of the hon. Minister of Environment and Climate Change and ...

Mr. Speaker, I have to say for the hon. Minister of Justice that not all members in this place have had ample opportunity. Some of us have had no opportunity. I would also like to say that, while the Green Party is in strong agreement with the bill, there is a difficulty with repeatedly using time allocation. ...

  Mr. Speaker, I appreciated the as-ever thoughtful approach of my friend from Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan on this issue. We may disagree around some of the aspects of his speech, but he is clearly very thoughtful about issues of reconciliation. However, when the member’s leader was before the Assembly of First Nations and was asked what the ...

Ms. Elizabeth May – Member for Saanich—Gulf Islands Mr. Speaker, I certainly do not pretend that I have any right to give lessons to our Minister of Finance, but I want to remind him that this is a discussion about time allocation, not about the substance. This is a question of taking a bill that ...
