Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, earlier today, a major report on the safety failures of the pipeline safety system in this country was released by Équiterre. It is a very disturbing record, and it is getting worse. Fifty-five percent of the oil pipeline incidents in Quebec since 2008 occurred in 2017, most of them involving the ...

Eliizabeth May Mr. Speaker, buying the 65-year old Trans Mountain pipeline from Kinder Morgan shows the kind of brilliant business acumen of buying up all of Blockbuster’s assets while Netflix takes off. I am wondering when we will see the contract of sale. We know there are apparently 121 pages of fine legalese that could ...

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.

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.

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 ...
