Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, it is an honour to rise tonight at adjournment proceedings to pursue a question I asked. I am really pleased to bring it up when not too much time has passed since the question was raised. It was toward the end of March this year, when we were seeing Prairie grain ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, I am so glad to be able to get in on private members’ business. Given my status in this place, I am not allowed to make a speech on the bill but I do want to state that I am very proud to be the seconder of this private member’s bill. ...

Ms. Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the member for Vancouver Quadra, hon. the parliamentary secretary. I completely agree about the hazardous area of the Hecate Strait.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, we all wish we were not rising on a sombre day to share memories of such a good guy. The hon. member for Leeds—Grenville—Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes has left us far too soon at 57. It is for all of us a deep shock. We heard the news just hours ...

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.
