Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise tonight to pursue a question that I asked in the House last week, punctuated by two events. Tomorrow we experience the 25th anniversary of the devastating assault, the organized crackdown by the People’s Republic of China Communist Party. I can remember watching on television as the Statue of Liberty ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to rise to present two petitions. The first petition has been signed primarily by people from Parksville and Qualicum Beach, in British Columbia, as well as people from Mississauga and Grimsby, in Ontario. The petitioners are calling on the Prime Minister and his cabinet ministers to not ratify ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present two petitions. The first is primarily from residents of Alberta and Vancouver. They are calling on the government and this House to stand against the ratification of the Canada-China investment treaty. Their concerns are many, but they state concern with the superior ability of China’s state-owned ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise today to present two petitions. The first petition is from residents of Vancouver and of Hudson, Quebec. The petitioners call upon the government to cease the efforts to ratify the Canada-China investment treaty, noting that it is an infringement on our sovereignty and threatens our ability to pass laws ...

Goodness knows, I wish the NDP had put forward a motion I could have voted for.  We need a good debate on climate and we need a strong call for government action.  But, I couldn’t vote for that motion. Here’s the text of the motion: That this House: agree with many Canadians and the International ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my second petition comes from residents of Vancouver and Edmonton. The petitioners are calling on the House to inform the executive of the Government of Canada not to ratify the Canada-China investment treaty as it will create undue and unbalanced rights for the People’s Republic of China to the detriment of ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would like to wish all members of this House a happy Earth Day. Today is the 43rd anniversary of that celebration, but please excuse me if I do not feel like celebrating. The only motion before us today that has any environmental content is the NDP motion from its last ...

The highly controversial Canada-China Investment Treaty will go to a vote this evening on an NDP motion from the party’s supply day on Thursday. The treaty has never had so much as a day of committee hearings – one hour was allowed in the trade committee on October 18, 2012.  The Thursday motion allowed six ...

Date: 2013/04/18 -- Category/Categories: Debate

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would speak to my friend from Halifax West through you. I am very disappointed that the Liberal Party thinks that this treaty is better approved as is than put forward right now for a vote and defeated. This treaty is a direct assault on Canadian sovereignty. It disproportionately protects the ...

Date: 2013/04/18 -- Category/Categories: Debate

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would like to actually address this question to all members of this House. The Canada-China investment treaty is significantly flawed. It does not protect the environment even as much as the agreement Canada just negotiated with Benin. The whole concept of investor-state agreements has been brought into question by cost-benefit ...
