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, 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 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.

Elizabeth May : Mr. Speaker, the parliamentary secretary has dismissed the notion that Canada Post would remain viable through diversification of services, as other countries have done. Yes, it is true in Canada’s history that we used to have postal banking and it fell into disuse. In the period of time since postal banking services ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I just came back, as we all did, from visits in my constituency. I held town hall meetings in eight locations and had over 1,300 constituents come. At every single meeting, the question of losing postal service and what is happening to Canada Post came up everywhere. People are desperately concerned ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I want to first commend my neighbour and friend from Victoria for an excellent speech. This is what has been bothering me about Bill C-2 from the beginning. It is that it is, by stealth, an effort to pretend and feign respect for the Supreme Court decision while, through every aspect ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague and caucus mate for bringing forward some additional points on the ideology that underpins the bill. I spoke to it before the recess. One of the things I find most distressing about Bill C-2 is that it is a disguised attempt to bring in, by stealth, ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would also like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year. All members of the Green Party would like to thank the MPs and the entire parliamentary team. We are all very grateful for the hard work of those who have been mentioned by my colleagues. I ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, as this is the first time I have been able to take the floor in today’s opposition day motion, I want to begin by thanking the hon. member for Victoria—my neighbouring riding—a neighbour and an old friend, for an excellent opportunity. I fully support his motion. It is critical we address ...
