Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the warnings of climate scientists are becoming increasingly urgent and worrying. The most recent, days ago, was that the world was watching the weakening of the Gulf Stream ocean currents, with potentially catastrophic impacts. The scientists are warning that we must reduce greenhouse gases far more rapidly than our current commitments. ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, a Canadian company, indeed a Victoria B.C. company called AggregateIQ, has been the subject of debate in the Palace of Westminster. Our parliamentary colleagues there are hearing that this company played a significant role in manipulating data to effect the vote on the Brexit referendum. I want to know if the ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, as millions of tons of grain sit on prairie farms and in grain elevators, on our coast of British Columbia, we have freighters and container ships waiting to pick up that grain at the Port of Vancouver backed up and using the waters of the Salish Sea as a free parking ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, we have alarming news from the front lines of the climate emergency. The dispatches are deeply worrying. The defences are falling against what protected our Arctic and kept it cold. The polar vortex is eroding and like an advancing army, the warm air from the south has occupied our Arctic, driving ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, there have been a lot of claims made, even here today in the House, about the jobs that would be created by Kinder Morgan, but there is no evidence to back up those claims. There is no evidence because the National Energy Board refused to hear the evidence of Unifor. The ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, in town halls with my community through the break period, I heard, over and over again, the concerns of the takeover of Aecon, proposed to be taken over by a state-owned enterprise of the People’s Republic of China. British Columbians are particularly concerned because Aecon now holds 30% of the contracts ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, all that remains to be done now is the rubber stamp of the Investment Canada Act for one of Canada’s largest construction companies, Aecon, to be sold to a state-owned enterprise of the People’s Republic of China, the China Communications Construction Company, CCCI. This company has a very troubling human rights, ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it is tricky to do this, but I cannot ask my question until I express what I think is in all of our hearts. Best wishes to the Minister of Fisheries as he faces his new health challenges. In my remaining eight seconds, will the Minister of Health consider working with ...

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 ...

Date: 2017/11/20 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Question Period

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I rise to address the question of climate change. We have just come through the COP 23 discussions in Bonn. Canada did very well.
