Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the offshore petroleum boards in Atlantic Canada, the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board and the Canada-Newfoundland & Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board, have legislated mandates to expand oil and gas activity in the offshore. They have never had any role in environmental assessment. If they did, it would be a conflict of ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, among Arnold Chan’s last words to the House were these: It is imperative that we stop treating climate change as solely an environmental issue but recognize it as an all-encompassing priority that we as a society and a government must confront with the utmost urgency. The Environment Commissioner’s report yesterday made ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, my question is to the Minister of Finance. I had eight town halls recently in my riding and, not surprisingly, heard from many constituents on concerns about the proposed tax changes. One young doctor made a point that I have not heard from others. If we look at the demographics of ...

Elizabeth May Thank you, Mr. Speaker. My question is for the Minister of Natural Resources. We know that since Bill C-38 in 2012, the National Energy Board, with no competence or experience in environmental assessment, is making a hash of the projects that it reviews. Two expert panels have now recommended taking the National Energy ...

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 ...

Date: 2017/06/02 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Question Period

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. ...

Date: 2017/05/31 -- Category/Categories: Debate, Parliament, Question Period

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, to clarify, the committee report on electoral reform did not contain any dissent from the New Democrats or the Greens. We filed a supplemental report in support of the recommendations. In support of those recommendations, within the hour, I am certainly hoping that many MPs, in fact most of us, will ...

Date: 2017/05/17 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Question Period

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. The report was damning. This is an agency that has no credibility whatsoever, and needs to be ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, in the Liberal platform, it was promised that there would be action on the changes that Stephen Harper made in the omnibus budget bills, particularly the elimination of the Navigable Waters Protection Act. In fact, their platform said, “We will review these changes, restore lost protections, and incorporate more modern safeguards.” ...
