Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to rise in this House again. Does my colleague believe it is possible to improve Bill C-6? Does she agree that we now have an opportunity to improve it? Sadia Groguhé: Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for her question. I think that improving the ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, that was an excellent address. The member spoke so clearly to the issues that I think all of us on the opposition benches at least, and I imagine some friends on the Conservative side in their heart, would like to see changed. I am going to refer to a brief that ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am very glad to have an opportunity to put some questions to the hon. member for Skeena—Bulkley Valley because, unlike the hon. member for Red Deer, I suspect he may have read Bill C-22 and knows there is nothing in the bill that has anything to do with tankers or ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I share the concerns of the hon. member for Vancouver East. There are some good elements of the bill. I appreciate the member for York Centre pointing out he is best minister we have ever had, although I do not know how the current Minister of Employment and Social Development feels ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am glad my hon. colleague, the member for South Shore—St. Margaret’s, spent so much of his speech focusing on one part of the bill that I really do support, and that is the part dealing with the issue of lost Canadians. It has taken too long. It has proven complex. ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my hon. colleague from Winnipeg North put forth some hypotheticals. One thing that has concerned a number of human rights organizations is whether this law would offend the Convention on the Rights of the Child? If a minor child whose parents lose citizenship and they have citizenship in another country, that ...

Date: 2014/05/28 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Questions on the Order Paper

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am pleased that we are on the subject of the imaginary issue of people who are in the armed forces who are not Canadian citizens. I put it to the minister in committee and he was clear about this as well. Number one, to join the Canadian Armed Forces a ...

Date: 2014/05/28 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Questions on the Order Paper

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I find this bill very disturbing and for many of the reasons that the member has already outlined in terms of the notion that citizenship can be held as a discretionary privilege in the hands of any particular political administration. As I look at this bill, one of the areas that ...

Date: 2014/05/28 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Questions on the Order Paper

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I wish we could be having the kind of conversation that would reflect the honesty of what is going on in this place, which would mean that I was not addressing my question through the Speaker to the hon. Minister of Citizenship and Immigration but to the puppet masters in the ...

Date: 2014/05/27 -- Category/Categories: Parliament, Questions on the Order Paper

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the member’s remarks and the fact that the official opposition will be voting in support of the bill, as will I. I certainly hope it will pass before we rise this summer, as the hon. member for Oakville has indicated he would like to see. Would the hon. member ...
