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.

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.

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 ...

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. There was leadership, but we still ended up with quite mediocre results and a lot of hopes are being pinned on the upcoming climate leaders summit in ...

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.

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.
