Elizabeth May: Saanich—Gulf Islands, BC Mr. Speaker, this is my first opportunity to get to my feet in today’s debate on Bill C-37. We are all terribly concerned. I am desperately concerned, as a member of Parliament from British Columbia, about the fentanyl crisis. Over 900 people died last year; I think it was 162 in ...

Mr. Speaker, I think all of us tonight are feeling very united in a commitment that is shared and non-partisan. I want to make this more as a comment than a question because I do not want to put my hon. colleague on the spot. The systemic violence of the residential school system over 100 ...
