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 ...

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 ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, second, I have petitions from residents of Waterloo, Ontario; Victoria, British Columbia; and other locations, calling upon the Prime Minister and his cabinet to refuse to ratify the treaty that now sits before them between Canada and China. It is not a trade treaty. It is an investor protection agreement that will ...

Date: 2013/03/21 -- Category/Categories: Question Period

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my question for the Prime Minister is about an investor state agreement that was tabled with the House in February. It is with the west African country of Benin. Benin has a gross domestic product of $7 billion. We can compare and contrast it to the People’s Republic of China, which ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise this evening in adjournment proceedings to pursue a question I asked of the Prime Minister on November 21, 2012. It related to what we are pursuing in the Canada-China investment treaty, which was, as we know, signed in Vladivostok in September 2012. It was placed before this place for ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, my second petition is from residents of Kelowna and the Toronto area calling on the Prime Minister and his cabinet to refuse to ratify the Canada-China investment treaty.

Date: 2013/02/13 -- Category/Categories: Petitions

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the second petition is from residents primarily of Kelowna and Vernon, asking that the Prime Minister and cabinet refuse to ratify the Canada-China investment treaty. The petitioners believe, as I do, this would impede Canada’s sovereignty in order to bring forward laws for the environment, health, public safety and so on. Print ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, very briefly, the second petition of 100 signatures is from residents of the Victoria area asking that the House do everything possible to obstruct, delay and prevent the ratification of the Canada-China investment treaty, which has still not been ratified, thank goodness.
