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 rise to pay tribute to my friend, Farley McGill Mowat. Born May 12, 1921, he was, as we all know, one of Canada’s most outstanding talents, an author whose more than 40 works were translated into 52 languages and sold more than 17 million copies. Repeating the accomplishments of his ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the member for Pickering—Scarborough East referred to this “big book”. As most members in the House have done, the government is calling it a budget, but it is not a budget. There is no statement anywhere in this document that gives us a complete statement of revenues against expenses. There is ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I have read Bill C-23 carefully. It is important for all members to note that it does not list what forms of ID would be acceptable. The process would be much harder than my hon. colleague seems to understand; for instance, I’ll turn to some of the examples he used. Could ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise tonight to pursue a question that I first asked in the House of Commons a few weeks ago, dealing with the legality of the current administration’s decision to shut down libraries and dispense with materials. The stories in the media were deeply disturbing. We heard about the Freshwater Institute ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, to cast some light on what was said earlier by my friend from Mississauga South, one must remember that in the 2012 budget, Parks Canada was cut by 10%. That has been a significant, really deep, and devastating cut to Parks Canada’s capacity. All the scientific work in Parks Canada has ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, this is one of those occasions when I wish an S. O. 31 was more than 60 seconds as I try to sum up of the life an extraordinary woman who had an extraordinary life. I was proud to know her as a friend and a colleague. Margaret Fulton passed away ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I was somewhat surprised that my question to the Prime Minister on December 5 just before our Christmas break was viewed by whomever categorizes my late show questions as one relating to natural resources, as I really feel it deals with first nations rights and the responsibilities of the Minister of ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I can barely believe what I am going to share with all members here today, and it is from a veteran I met with last weekend in my riding. He said the problem is not just post traumatic stress disorder. He is on a medical leave and he said he is ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I have to say that I was enormously grateful to the member for Vancouver Kingsway for so clearly reciting the reasons the bill before us is odious, as is the trade agreement. This trade deal is with a country that has just had a populist democratic leader knocked out by a ...
