Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and I am wearing the gold ribbon to be part of the Gold Ribbon Campaign. We do not often think about it, but cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among Canadian children, killing more of our children than all other diseases ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague from Vancouver East for her fine representation of her constituency. I certainly think we need to maintain these facilities. I have been shocked by the bill, because it is so transparently an attempt to circumvent what the court has said. I have never seen a subsection ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. friend from Welland for raising some very timely concerns as we look at the so-called safeguarding Canada’s seas and skies act. As I mentioned before, it is the cobbling together of provisions for forensic studies of airline disasters and appointments to an aeronautics board, and calling it ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I want to refer to my hon. colleague’s point about the bill making modest improvements. The bill would put into legislative form changes that have been anticipated for quite a while due to international agreements for liability in relation to maritime incidents. However, I find that one of the more amusing ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, in this triangulated debate, I would like to answer the question the hon. member for Edmonton Centre just asked. I do not think any of us on the opposition benches who find the language of Bill C-6 objectionable are suggesting that we stop working with our ally and friend, the United ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, although the Conservative members in this House are not debating tonight, we are certainly getting a lot of points made repeatedly, such as those made by the hon. member for Edmonton Centre. For my friend from London—Fanshawe, the claim has been made repeatedly in debate this evening that the exact language ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the hon. parliamentary secretary has told us tonight that we can trust that Bill C-24 is compliant with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, because it would not be before the House if it had not gone through justice department lawyers, and the fact that it is before us means it ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague and neighbour from Vancouver Island, from Esquimalt—Juan de Fuca, for giving me a chance to clarify the Green Party platform, which he referred to as the 2011 platform. We do not mind the concept of income splitting if there are adequate resources to make it possible without ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour for me to rise in the House. Today, almost one year has passed since the Lac-Mégantic disaster. On July 6, 2013, a train without a conductor crashed into the little town of Lac-Mégantic. I mention it today because 6,000 people of that community in a class-action ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my hon. friend from Calgary Centre seems to think we are debating the budget. In fact, we are debating an omnibus budget bill, Bill C-31, which makes no reference whatsoever to national parks. However, since she did, I would like to point out that while it is commendable that we have ...
