December 07, 2017 (OTTAWA) – Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada (MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands), submitted five amendments to Bill C-55, An Act to amend the Oceans Act and the Canada Petroleum Resources Act, which went through clause-by-clause consideration at the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans this morning. Two of Ms. May’s ...

Date: 2017/12/07 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Question of Privilege

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I will not trespass long on our time. I heard the point of privilege put forward by the hon. member for New Westminster—Burnaby. I tend to steer away from things when I see points of privilege that are purely partisan, but this one strikes home for me. The test for deliberately ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise this evening in adjournment proceedings to pursue a question that I asked on September 20. It was to the Minister of Natural Resources. As congenial as it was, I did not find the answer satisfactory, because it did not actually answer my question. My question ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I do regret that the hon. President of the Treasury Board has taken so long with his answers when we opposition members are restricted to a finite 30 minutes to complain about the fact that our debate on this very important access to information bill will be restricted. I want to ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it would absolutely astonish me if the Canadian branches of the Five Eyes—CSIS, the RCMP, and so on—were not keeping anyone associated with overseas engagement in ISIS activities under very close watch and surveillance. However, there is an opportunity here that we ought to talk about, and that is that these ...

Elizabeth May Madam Speaker, for the Canadian parents of Kevin, there is nothing one can say to ease their pain and their loss. However, I think we do ourselves a disservice to direct that anger to the settlement with Omar Khadr. I do not think I have heard any other member of Parliament talk about ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, for more than 30 years, every federal government in this country and every prime minister regardless of political stripe has stood up to defend the Canadian interests in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The Trump administration, through a GOP budget bill, is now proposing to reopen the issue with the threat ...

Elizabeth May Forgive me, but I need to put on the record an objection to the process to the fact that this committee passed a motion that deprives me of the right I would ordinarily have to present these amendments at report stage. I know that you individually did not intend to increase my workload, ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, quite often a report, even a unanimous one by a standing committee in this place, can go by without a chance to for us to discuss and debate it in the House. I re-emphasize and agree entirely that the immigration consultant industry is long overdue for regulation. Within my riding of ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, in the course of Bill S-3, the conversations I had with the hon. minister in this place in June and the attempts to remove all vestiges of historic gender-based discrimination have now come to a good place. The new and expanded role of a Senate with independent senators and indeed the ...
