Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, Rails to Relevance is an annual project of Claremont high school, bringing bright young kids from this great public high school to Ottawa by rail—by VIA Rail. The Canadian Transportation Act review by the Hon. David Emerson recommended that Canada cease to have a national passenger rail service. Can the Minister ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it is a huge honour for me to rise today as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of this House of Commons. I am overwhelmed and grateful for my colleagues that there is an opportunity for the Green Party to mark the 150th sitting of the Parliament of Canada. I want to ...

Question Period Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, since my election in 2011, nothing was more painful than watching the destruction of our environmental laws in 2012. I took heart in the Liberal promises to reverse those changes and restore environmental protection, particularly in the mandate letter to the Minister of Transport, which reads that he would ...

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.

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. ...
