Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I congratulate my hon. colleague on his first speech as the Parliamentary Secretary to the President of the Treasury Board. I just wish he had better content for his first speech. Bill C-58 is such a massive disappointment. I have never seen a commissioner like the Privacy Commissioner pan legislation as ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, words may fail me, and that rarely happens. This bill is despicable. The minister should be ashamed of the claim she makes on the floor of this House, the claim that she is supported by doing consultations, when she explicitly ignored the advice of the expert panel on environmental assessment. It ...

Elizabeth May: Madam Speaker, I rise to raise a question I initially asked on May 30, not long ago. While the procedures for Adjournment Proceedings call for being allowed to ask for such a debate when the answer received is not sufficient, I think I am within the rubric of our rules in asking for this ...

Madam Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague and the other half of the Green Party caucus in this place on his first speech. I also thank the voters of Nanaimo—Ladysmith for growing us as a party, as well as the individual efforts of this particular community leader to be in this place and speak ...

Mr. Speaker, I certainly share many of the concerns of the hon. member for Essex about this new version, NAFTA 2.0, CUSMA or USMCA, depending on where people stand and what country they are in. I have concerns and I am also torn. CUSMA certainly is a vast improvement in finally getting rid of the investor-state provisions ...

Madam Speaker, as is not uncommon for me, I find myself somewhat in the middle on this. I deeply object to this very harsh time limitation on the debate of Bill C-88. At the same time, I was here in the 41st Parliament and I did work against the legislation. It was clear at the ...

Mr. Speaker, with all due respect, I do not feel, as leader of the Green Party, that I had adequate opportunity to debate what has happened with Bill C-59, particularly since it went to the Senate. However, I want to say on the record that although it is not the perfect bill one would have wished ...

Mr. Speaker, it is a great honour to speak today during the final hour of debate after several years of work on a bill that is important to the world’s whales. I am particularly honoured to rise this morning because we are at the point that most members in this place appear ready to see ...
