Elizabeth May: News flash: Mr. Speaker, a parliamentary committee has found as fact that first past the post is inappropriate in any democracy with more then two parties contesting elections. That is actually not a news flash. That was the finding of the first parliamentary committee in 1921. I admit there has been something of ...

Mr. Speaker, I rise to draw the attention of the House to a worsening situation in arms control.

Mr. Speaker, I thank all of my colleagues here today. I particularly express condolences to all of my friends in the Conservative caucus.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to draw the attention of the House to the plight of the very courageous residents, the Inuit peoples, of the village of Clyde River, who have gone to court to stop an approved project, the seismic blasting of their region for a five-year period, five months a year, ...
