Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I wish I shared the enthusiasm of the member for St. John’s East that the current government has a climate plan. It does not have a plan. However, nothing makes me more sympathetic to the Liberals’ attempts to deal with climate change, which is a current crisis, than hearing the Conservatives ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I will follow up on the last question from my hon. colleague from Vancouver Quadra. The carbon tax approach to reducing greenhouse gases is accepted by experts globally, including The Economist and the International Monetary Fund. It is very establishment-accepted by economists that it is a precursor to basically correct a ...

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, the Conservatives have this tendency of listing off projects where the proponents decided for market and internal reasons of their own to cancel a project. I think it was a travesty that the Liberal government gave a permit to Petronas LNG to build on Lelu Island, but the Malaysian state-owned enterprise, ...

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, ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, it is an honour to rise today to support Bill C-48, a bill to legislate a permanent tanker ban along British Columbia’s north coast. I also have amendments that I hope will still pass, which I brought before the committee. I find the debate about this tanker ban to take place, ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to be one of the seconders for this motion. The way I see it, we know action must be taken, and a study should not delay action. For instance, we know seismic testing in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is disastrous for the right whale. While the Minister ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, this is an issue that touches on so very much of the deep and searing pain that was experienced by generations of indigenous people across Canada. For those of us who are practising Christians, it touches on questions of our obligations as parliamentarians with regard to the structure and the institution ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, as a member from an ocean coastal riding, I welcome Bill C-55. The hon. member may be interested to know that there is a proposed protected area for a national marine conservation area in my riding. It is still called the Southern Strait of Georgia proposal, although everyone in my area ...

Elizabetgh May Mr. Speaker, I thank the Minister of Families. The Minister of Fisheries and Oceans did a great job on Bill C-55. That is not the problem. The problems is that the government is abusing the process by repeatedly imposing gag orders in the House. That is undemocratic. Could the minister please explain to ...
