Week in Review: June 4 – June 8
Welcome to Elizabeth May’s parliamentary week in review! This weekly e-newsletter recaps her work in Parliament when the House is in session. Using the links below, you can watch videos of Elizabeth’s interventions in the House, keep up with her media releases, and read articles she has written.
With the House sitting till midnight from now until the summer recess, there are more opportunities for debate than usual. This week, Elizabeth had more than two dozen interventions on national security, gun control, environmental assessment, Budget 2018 and criminal justice reform. She also posed a question to the Minister of Natural Resources on the Trans Mountain pipeline purchase.
On that note, help Elizabeth get to 10 000 signatures on her petition to halt this reckless deal. The e-petition introduced last week has collected more than 8000 names – let’s keep the momentum going! Click here to sign.
