Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I think the whole House can see from the questions from the leader of the official opposition, the leader of the New Democrats, and now from me that there is an extraordinary broad consensus on this side of the House that Canadian families and individuals living with autism really do need ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, now that the Prime Minister has clarified, for the second time, the Der Spiegel story and has clearly said that he never asked Chancellor Merkel to remove references to the Paris accord from the G20 summit declaration, let me flip it to the affirmative and ask the Prime Minister to confirm ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, after yesterday’s very disturbing announcement from the rose garden, the surrealistic orchestras striking up on the deck of the Titanic as Trump announced that the U.S. would leave the Paris agreement, which it cannot legally do for four years, it does open up a chasm where there will be insufficient action. ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, to clarify, the committee report on electoral reform did not contain any dissent from the New Democrats or the Greens.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the National Energy Board expert panel that reported this week included prominent industry people, such as Brenda Kenny of the Canadian Pipeline Association and Hélène Lauzon of the Quebec Business Council on the Environment.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, next week in Fairbanks, Alaska is an all-important meeting of the Arctic Council where eight nations of the Arctic will be holding a meeting, represented by foreign ministers.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, we were all moved enormously and inspired by the words of Malala Yousafzai in this place just hours ago. In her words, will the Prime Minister make girls’ education the central theme of his upcoming G7 presidency? Will he use the influence of Canada to help fill the global education funding ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, since Bill C-38 in 2012, we have been labouring under a broken environmental assessment process. Today we have a landmark report from the expert panel on EA, headed by our former commissioner for the environment. It makes a bold recommendation: get rid of the NEB’s Environmental Assessment Agency, have a single ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the International Energy Agency have all urged governments around the world to do two things, at a minimum: to put in place a carbon price and to eliminate all fossil fuel subsidies.
