Question Period: Marijuana legalization, carbon tax, lobster fishing zone closure — June 14, 2018
The. Animal members Louie son of all. Mr, Speaker government. Wants to implement marijuana. Legalization, as soon as possible, and, it's really not a good idea. One. Of the liberal ideas is to allow home, cultivation. Of four plants, of pot in every. House in Canada. Fortunately. Mr. speaker the, government's, obsessive, approach has, just hit a wall because. Two provinces Quebec, and manitoba are refusing. Will. The Liberal government respect. Provincial, jurisdiction, and perfect respective. Provinces. The. Honourable Minister of Health, Thank. You mr. speaker. Protecting. The health and safety of Canadians, is an absolute priority for our government. Home. Cultivation. Will, help displace. The illegal market. This. Will. Apply, to, provinces. And territories and, we are also following the advice. Of the, working group, and. Representatives. Of various jurisdictions, in, the US who have legalized cannabis thank you the interval member for the Senate halt, mr.. Speaker what a lack of respect, I'm. Not the one saying it it's, the, liberal Minister, of Quebec is, John Maloney who. Is respecting. His provincial jurisdiction, Quebec, and Manitoba don't want home cultivation. Mr.. Speaker it's, sad to say but the reality, is that the government, is being stubborn and not listening to anyone they didn't listen to First Nations they didn't listen to Quebec, and Manitoba can. The Prime Minister sure of one thing that there won't be any pot. Of production at 24 Sussex. Mr.. Speaker our government is. Strictly. Legalizing. And regulating, cannabis. To. Prevent our young people from having access to it and we, want to ensure. That those. Profits don't up in the hands of organized crime the current, system is not working, it's. Allowing criminals to profit from the system and it's still far too easy for our young people to buy pot. That's. Why our government engaged. In consultations, with experts, police. Chiefs and many other stakeholders, we will end up with a good bill to protect our youth well. Order, the Honourable member for Milton Thank You mr. speaker mr. speaker right now fishermen. Are assembling, a blockade, of lobster, traps outside, the office of the Member of Parliament for McAfee backers they, are doing, this because of the Minister, of Fisheries and Oceans extreme, decision, to, close the lobster, fishery in the Gulf of st. Lawrence now. The minister, knows that a decision like this is going to have a serious financial impact on the families, there especially, after his rule change that happened at the end of April why does it have to come to a blockade, to get this ministers, attention. Conservative. Hollywood, suggests that we not take the most robust, measures necessary, to, protect the North Atlantic right whale because she will understand, as all Canadians, do that, protecting, the North Atlantic right whale is vital to ensuring, the, continued, access to international, markets, for over six billion dollars, of Canadian, fish and seafood exports, mr., speaker we understand, that this decision is difficult, we understand, that fishers, and plant workers will be will. Be concerned, that's why I have the privilege of meeting representatives, tomorrow. In New Brunswick and will continue to work with them to ensure they're protected, honourable. Member for Milton, Thank You mr. speaker for weeks the Liberals have refused, to tell Canadians, how much of their carbon, tax is going to cost them and they use the prime minister's own words this is very, insulting. To Canadians, they've, been completely straightforward with the fact they tend to proceed, with, a carbon tax but when it comes to telling us exactly how much it's going to cost they're eerily, silent voters. In Ontario, have spoken and what they said at the ballot box is they don't want to have a carbon tax but mr. speaker they have a chance today will they at least tell us how, much it's going to cost. We, published a report on April 30th doing exactly that it talks about pricing, pollution, it talks about the 80 to 90 million tons, equivalent.
Of Taking 25, million cars off the road, that pricing achieves, but we believe that provinces. Are best place in, deciding. What to do with revenues, we've been clear brought revenues, will stay in the province, 80% of Canadians, live in a province where, they have a price on pollution they've, given back quite money in tax cuts in rebates. They've been bested and clean innovation, they should go ask those provinces what, they're doing with their revenues, horrible. Order. The. Honourable, member for Milton. Is. For her to tell us what, her department officials, told her is the cost to Canadian, families, funfair. Carpenters she, knows what the answer is but, breaking news today we understand, why Ontarians, actually voted for Doug Ford in the election, in Ontario, they said that, voters, feel that, costs, are out of control and they view carbon, taxes, as nothing, more than, a cash grab. Ball mr. speaker why, won't these MPs, at least tell voters, in Canada how much of their cash to, the intent. How, much clearer, I can be. Into. The province it is absolute, provinces. To decide what to do but let's talk about the economy let's talk about the. 600,000. Jobs that, our government, created, with Canadians, let's, talk about the lowest, unemployment rate. In, generations. Let's, talk about how we can, take serious, action, on climate change and we, can grow our economy, the previous government, could do neither. Only. For so much noiz order, members know where they're required to not. Interrupt in the house and someone else has the floor the time to speak is, when they have the floor each side gets its chance to take part from debate we. Wait, till. We have our turn. And. The haptic to death in the. Bank. Of Canada, said yesterday people might buy the testing the trance mount an expansion project and, it will basically just have to deal with that I'm, really surprised I have to say this in this house but the right to protest peacefully is, protected.
By The Canadian Charter of Rights and it's fundamental, to our democracy well. The government condemned, that it dodges comments, or do they agree with them but the pie plate must go through at any cost, including, the lives of peaceful, protesters. Our. Government, believes in the right of peaceful protest. Patema. Skinny teams go to a Basque well. Mr., speaker that's not very reassuring I would have liked a longer, response than that. No. I'd remind you that in December 2016. The. Minister of Natural Resources in, this house said. That peaceful protesters. Against, the pipeline might. End up facing the Canadian Armed Forces, after. Such words from a cabinet member it's concerning to see that, a senior, civil. Servant, like David dodge would, be okay with protesters, being killed so I. Would like the government to recognize not. Only that. Peaceful. Civil disobedience. Is an essential tool of democracy, but call out the words of David dodge the. Honorable Minister the environment. We. Believe in Canadians, right to, protest peacefully. The. Host mana patty remember, for hos mone emptied Betsy, mr.. Speaker a study. From akita has shown that pipeline management in this country is a joke. In. 2017. The number of incidents, leaks and spills and. Other problems increased. By 41%, and, so-called, automatic. Detection systems, fail, to decay to detect half, of these incidents, and. When the companies get caught what happens nothing, notices. A violation, and other order orders, are systematically. Ignored and, no one ever loses, their licence when. Will this government clean up its act and deal, with these disrespectful. Oil companies. Honorable. Minister of Transport. It's. The duty of any government to get oil to markets and this fundamental, task, must, be carried out in great, respect of. Environmental. Rules the. Environmental. Pipeline. Safety Act, reinforces. Canada's, system. By. Enshrining. The polluter. Pay system, and federal legislation. Developers. Will be held responsible. Regardless. Of fault in, case of incidents. For the nine old ladies men as, liberals, put billions, indicator, morgen betraying, there's promise, sunny ways renewable, future pipelines.
Filson Accidents, are rising aqua. Tears new report, on oil pipeline, safety found, less, than 50%, of incidents, are reported the. National, Energy Board is quote not capable of handling the work on its plate it isn't. Protecting, citizens or the environment. So why'd the government buy a bleep. Eel pipeline, knowing these risks, and how, will it police itself, when the next leak happens. Mr., speaker as I just said it is a duty of government to, make sure that we get our resources to market and that's precisely what we're doing at the same time anyone. Who is responsible. For a pipeline must, understand, that our principle. Of polluter. Pay applies. And anyone, who is responsible. For it must take care of any incidents, that do occur the. Honourable, member, for, Carlton. Mr.. Speaker when I reported. To the house that the Fraser Institute had, calculated, that 81, percent of, middle-class taxpayers, were paying more under this government the prime minister said no that report, didn't say any such thing prompting. The authors, of the report to, go to the newspapers, and say and I quote yes. Most. Middle-class. Families, are paying. More in income, tax with his papers so, we can't trust this, government on taxes, we, ask them to come clean and tell us, how, much will this carbon, tax cost, the same middle-class. Families. I'm. Gonna, keep on saying the same thing we published, a report on, April 30th, I am happy, to personally. Give it it's the member opposite, what, does it say it says that pricing, pollution, works it says, that it reduces emissions. By eight to ninety million times and that, we've been clear revenues. Go back into the provinces, where they come from eighty percent of Canadians, live in Ontario Quebec, Alberta, BC. Where there's a price on pollution you can go ask that those, provinces what they do the revenues, by for example British Columbia, gives the revenues, back in tax cuts.
Order. The. Other number for abbotsford will come to order please. The. Honourable member for Carlton mr.. Speaker we're not asking, for their April, public, relations, pamphlet, we're asking for the costing, that the departments, have already, done on this week we're calling, on the government to release, all costing. Documents. That any department, has produced. Or shared, internally. Since. The. Last election, day, that, is the only way we will know the real cost of this carbon tax will. This, Minister, and this government release, all of those documents, unredacted. So, Canadians, know what this tax will. Canadians. We have out you, should go to, properties, and us what provinces. Are gonna do. There's. A lot of misinformation, here. From. The other side all the revenues, will stay in the province, and the provinces, can give back the revenues, is tax cut but, what your natives really, want to know is what. Is the Conservative. Party's climate, lab. Members. Know about the rule that members should address the chair it's. Designed, to avoid members referring, to one another as you and so forth but I think it's best to keep to that rule in general you'll, remember for Carleton well. As these liberals, are looking forward to getting to. Some beautiful cottage. On some Lake Canadians. Are suffering. Under the burden of, higher. Gas, prices prices. As high as a, dollar, sixty, a leader in some provinces prices. That will only rise further, when, this Liberal government imposes, its, carbon, tax we want to know the price mr. speaker and in fact if this government is going to make Canadians, pay the price we're going to make the government pay the price by keeping them here for 25 hours straight voting. On. Order. Numbers. Seem to be a greater excited about that 24-hour prospect, the Honorable Minister of, Environment order. Thank. You mr. speaker we. Don't have to go through a stunt, that the Conservatives, are going to power because. We. Answered. The question, 80%, of, Canadians. Province. Where, the province, has decided, what, to do with the revenues, the. Revenues, have gone back in tax cuts they've gone in to investment, in clean innovation. We have been clear that, provinces. Are best place to decide what. To do with the revenues, but, once again why Canadians, want to know is, what, is the Conservatives. Climate. Change plan the. Honourable, member for Carlton wish speaker we know they claim they're gonna collect, all this tax and then give it to provincial, politicians, that's not our question, we're. Asking how much the tax will cost if it had nothing to do with the federal government, well then it wouldn't be in the federal budget bill. They've. Written a bill asking, this house for permission, to raise taxes, on Canadians, but they won't even tell us what, that tax, will cost, there's no taxation, without, information, when, will they give us the information on the cost of it. Once. Again I refer, to the April, 30th document, that provides the information but, let's talk about what we've done we, have created. Jobs with, Canadians, historic, numbers, of jobs we have the lowest unemployment rate. In generations. We cut taxes, on the middle class and, raise them on the 1% the top one percent we. Have given, money back to Canadians through the Canada child benefit, so anoying out of ten families, are better off and we raise 300, kids out of poverty, that's real, action, we're going to continue taking real action on climate change and growing our economy I wish the other party, would join us, honourable. Order. The, Honourable member for Calgary knows Hill mr. speaker we've taken intersectional. Gender lens to the cost of the carbon tax it's, arguable, that low-income women particularly, senior, women and single mothers will prepare, the disproportionate, cost of the carbon tax that's, true the Prime Minister Mr Speaker has said that poverty, is sexist, and he knows he has the data on how much it's going to cost these. Lower income women, when. Will he end this, carbon tax cover-up. Thrilled. To see the Conservatives, take an interest in gender equality this, is what real change looks, like I'd. Like to remind the Honourable member that, we gave more, funds to families, who need to support the most with the Canada Child Benefit they voted against it I'd like to remind her that we lowered. Taxes, for the middle class and, raise them on the 1% they, voted against it we're introducing, pay equity legislation.
They Work every, step of the way to stop that process we're, supporting, women and families, with, child, benefits, and child care opportunities, they voted against it. Looks. Like imposing. A tax grab that does nothing to reduce greenhouse gas, emissions which, they know while. Imposing, a tax that's going to disproportionately, harm. Low-income. Women, that's, real change that no Canadian, wants. It's. Not providing, Canadians, representation, as they're, increasing, their taxes, they have this data why, are they hiding it from Canadia. Benefit. Plan nine out of ten Canadian, families, are better off under our plan than they were. Pauly's, are truly, concerned about the well-being of, those working hard to join the middle class why, do they take the opportunity, at every, step of the way to, vote against plans and programs we introduced mr., speaker we have Housing, Strategy ten. Years forty, billion dollars least. Twenty five percent of which will support women and their, families with low incomes, my honourable colleague can jump on board and support our plan to grow the middle class a. La. Order. The. Honourable member for Betty MS Kim LJ mr.. Speaker after, the prime minister said he would be flexible, now, it's the Agriculture, Minister saying, that we. Can leave the door open to. Sacrificing. Supply. Management the. Liberals keep saying in the house that they'll defend Supply Management, that. They're the party that set it up and so on. But. They need to walk the talk the. Question is simple, both, the government defend, the supply management system in its. Entirety. During, National Ocean yes. Or no federal. Parliamentary secretary. Mr.. Speaker our, government, firmly supports. The supply management system, and will defend it the. Prime Minister the Minister of, Agriculture, the Minister of Foreign Affairs cabinet. Members in the entire caucus, caucus, as well. As trade negotiators, for Canada have been clear and unequivocal, from. The beginning of the nafta negotiations. Our. Government, strongly. Supports, the supply management system, and will continue to defend it and all. Of the interests, of Canadian, farming families for college and malahat, langford, mr., speaker more than, 13,000. Family farms in Canada work under the supply management, system, the, prime minister said the government would be flexible, with our system, in NAFTA renegotiations. And, the Agriculture, Minister wants to wait to see what's on the table mr., speaker what is that supposed, to mean when are these liberals, going to stop with the non-answers, protect, our family, farms and stand, up for the supply manage sectors. Mr.. Speaker as we've, said we are the part of it set up the supply management system and we, will defend it it. Is a model that provides stability for. The entire world we, are the party that fought. For it and will continue to fight for it we have said many times that.
The. Words. From our American partners are, unacceptable. The. Honourable member for Foothills mr., speaker the agriculture, minister claims that Canadian, farmers are fully supportive, of the liberal carbon tahoe I don't think they are actually consulting, with Canadian farmers at all in, fact the president, the Western Canadian wheat grower said farmers. Don't agree on everything, but if there is one issue they, stand together, on is it opposition. To, the carbon tax so. How can the Agriculture, Minister be misrepresenting. Farmers, will he end the carbon tax cover-up will he tell us how much the Liberals farm killing, carbon, tax will, cost our, rural families. By. Noting. That we're all in this together they, climate change is real and no one knows this more than farmers, when, I talk to farmers they're worried about droughts, they, were worried about floods, they're worried about extreme, weather but once, again it is up to provinces. To determine, what they're going to do provinces. Can decide that they are going to exempt fuels, used by farmers, it is up to them to design a system that makes it makes sense in their provinces, up to them to decide what, they're gonna do with the revenues. The. Honourable, member for, Prince Albert Thank, You mr. speaker the AG ministers claim that farmers support of cotopaxi are ridiculous, a pass. Grain, growers of Canada are speaking out against. It the, province of Saskatchewan has even taken the Liberals to court over, the tax. Saskatchewan. Farmers are well aware, that the cost of a carbon tax will have an impact on their livelihood. The, Liberals refused to tell us how much it will cost mr.. Speaker when, the Liberals come clean on this carbon tax. Speaker. As I said farmers, and ranchers understand. That we need to protect our environment that we need to take action on climate change. It is out two provinces, likes, the Scotch want to determine how they're, going to implement, pricing. And they can give the revenues, right back they, can give revenues back to farmers, they can decide to cut the provincial. Sales shop that, is their own decision, that is the right way but, we believe that we're all in this together and I really wish the opposition, wouldn't, make this a partisan issue because we have kids we, have grandkids, I. Clean. Future and they also. Order. This, is a good way to lose a question. Order. Now. A member for Richmond Center, mr.. Speaker one of the largest challenges, seniors, are facing, is being, able to thought, the basic, necessities. Of life we. All know that whether the gross impose new tax, it, hides, the cost of living and seniors. Are destroyed, prop. Disproportionately. Affected. Yeah why, won't, the Liberals finally, review what, they profit tax will cost seniors. Mr.. Social Development. Thank. You mr. speaker I'm delighted to talk about the, well-being and the welfare of our seniors. Unfortunately. I am less happy to talk about the fact that consumers voted. Every against. Every measure report. In favor of seniors we have brought. Back to 65 years old the age of eligibility to. All their security, which is going to prevent a hundred thousand, seniors from, entering into severe, poverty and fortunately, mr. speaker the Harper Conservatives voted.
Against That we raised the guaranteed, income supplement to. Help. 900,000. Seniors, unfortunately. Mr. speaker again our conservative, friends voted, against that the. Honourable, member for central, okanagan some milk miracles, attacked small business time, and time again and, never seen, job, creators, to pay a carbon, tax that will increase input, costs and the, Prime Minister refuses. To tell them how, much will cost now small business know this misguided tax won't pack the way they do business how, many employees they can hire and some, will be forced to shut down why. Won't the Prime Minister tell small businesses, the lifeblood, of our economy how. Much more they will be paying with, his national. Carbon tax. Let's. Talk about this government support of small businesses, this, is the government that lured small business a tree. Voted. Against it mr., speaker we discovered. The first-ever women's. Entrepreneurship. Strategy, almost, two billion, dollars, in support for, women, entrepreneurs what. Did the conservators do. We'll. Continue supporting. Small businesses, they are the backbone of economy we will not just say it we will support it and what will the. Auto. Remember for Hamilton Mountain, mr.. Speaker after, the Trump administration imposed. Of devastating, 25%. Tariffs on steel and 10%, on aluminum workers. Are worried about how they're going to take care of your families just. The steel industry alone, has at least 22,000. Direct jobs and supports, another 100,000. Indirect jobs especially. In Ontario, and in my community of Hamilton, yesterday. The Prime Minister avoided this very simple, question which, I will ask again when, will the government announced, the support package for steel and aluminum workers like it did for the software lumber workers last year. Mr. Speaker we will always defend, our steel and aluminum workers we've done so in the possible, continue to do so going forward, as the member opposite, knows full well the, tears that have been imposed by, the Americans. Is completely, unacceptable, it's, unwarranted, that is why we're working with industry we're working with worker to determine, the best path forward, but again make no mistake, about it, we will always defend, our workers in the aluminum and steel sectors. November. 1st yet. It's. All, one, thing to talk, about here in the house but there are thousands, of workers and businesses. All across the country who, are facing uncertainty. Due to the unacceptable. Tariffs, on aluminum, and steel given. The risks, and in preparation for the next few months which could be grim the, government needs to act quickly, these workers, and companies deserve, Swift and concrete, support, not just empty words, like. Quebec did is the government soon going to announce a support package to protect, our jobs and companies. And be transparent, about it especially for, the workers Donal, Minister of Economic. Development mr., speaker. The. Tariffs, slapped. On our exports, by the u.s. are unacceptable. That, is why we will continue to. Defend our workers, and companies. In, steel, and aluminum, I met, with the producers, Association. And all, options are on the table mr. speaker Thank You. Mr.. Speaker I'm sure everyone, here in the house would agree, there's. Never been a better time to diversify our, markets. Last. Year, new, trade deals entered. Into force with the, European, Union and, Ukraine. Reducing. Tariffs, and opening. Up combined. New, markets, totaling over half a billion consumers, for Canadian, exporters, we'll, do exactly the same can, the Minister please update this house on Canada's efforts to bring this important agreement into force. International. Trade speaker. I'd like to thank the member, for stubborn, art for his excellent, question, and his excel at work mr., speaker, Canadian understand, there's never been a better time to diversify. That's why with the CP TPP, mr. speaker will, improve, market, access we will improve new, industries, for Canadians, that means that worker is small and medium-sized, businesses, their families, and their communities, will, have a better chance to succeed Mr, Speaker we, will continue, to work for Canadians, and Canadians know one thing they know they can trust us when it comes to international, trade mr. speaker.
The. Honourable, member for Renfrew, Nipissing. Pembroke. Portals. Have been charging, a hidden carbon, tax since 2009, it, has doubled, the price of electricity in, Ontario, it has cost tens of thousands. Of jobs as companies. Move, to the United States it. Has forced, seniors, on fixed incomes. To choose whether, or not to eat or, heat and. Now the Ottawa, Liberals want to charge another carbon tax when, will they stop the cover-up and tell, Canadians, how much, the carbon, taxes. Thank. You mr. speaker I indeed. I didn't have enough timing my earlier response to detail other measures, that we put in favour of seniors, and unfortunately. Conservative. Harper, Conservatives voted. Against that we, enhanced, the Canada Pension Plan six months after we came into office to increase, the generosity the flexibility. The care with which our seniors, will be able to retire in in, when did you retire unfortunately. Mr. speaker our conservative. Friends voted against. Mr.. Speaker we also launched, the first ever, historic. National housing strategy, which will have a direct impact, on seniors, Honourable, member for Durham mr.. Speaker in Ontario, the auto industry. Competes, with the US for investment, in Michigan. There's no carbon, tax but. In Ontario, the Liberals are imposing a carbon, tax scheme that, is putting our auto sector at a disadvantage, now. The auto sector also faces, the risks of tariffs. Mr.. Speaker will, the Liberals, reveal the cost of, the, carbon tax on the auto industry, and will, they agree to exempt, the auto industry, from, their carbon tax so we can keep these jobs in Canada. Mr.. Speaker we have a thriving, and vibrant automotive. Sector in Ontario, and across the country you know why mr. speaker because they have a government that backs them up and supports them all the way since. 2015. We've been working very closely with the automotive sector building, partnerships, and what that has resulted is, in a five point six billion dollar total, investment in the automotive sector this, is helped create and preserve, thousands. Of jobs mr. speaker this album are focused on refocus, on growth and jobs and will continue to support the automotive sector and built, the car of the future as well. But. The carbon tax cover-up, means. Are fed up with the prime minister's refusal, to tell them how much this harmful, carbon, tax will. Cost them and, BC, drivers, are not paying a whopping dollar and 60. Cents to, tank up their cars the, liberal carbon, tax is going to add 11, cents to that the. Price of everything from, groceries to home, heating, is going to go up under this Liberal government, when.
Will The Prime Minister finally, tell us how. Much will his carbon, tax cost. The average, Canadian. Family, and. What's he hiding. So. Where, are, the Conservatives hiding their climate, plan. To. Share that personally, with the number opposite, we often have conversations. Happy, to deliberate I will hand it over to them because, that's where it explains that pricey, pollution. Is like, taking twenty five million cars off the roads and it's up to provinces, what they do with the revenues, they can do tax cuts they, can I give, it back the rebates, they. Ask. It's. In Manny and others not really left if someone else has the floor, order, yeah. I will remember for abbotsford again, no answer. You. Know mr. speaker the news gets, worse. This, Liberal government, hasn't that. It will not meet its climate change targets we, all know the Prime Minister secretly, planning to, increase the carbon tax from 50, dollars to a hundred. To, three hundred dollars per time in the coming years what's. He hiding mr.. Speaker, can you imagine how, astronomically. Expensive life, would become in, such a world so. One more time to, the Prime Minister how, much will this carbon, tax. Cost. árbol. Minister. We. Have fake names, coming, from the other socket. News. The only thing that's being hidden is, what, is the Conservatives. Climate, plan maybe, the next time they get up they can tell us what the climate plan, is how, they're gonna tackle climate. Change and, how they're gonna create jobs which they weren't either they weren't able to do either. Orator. Remember. For Dufferin Caledon will come to order along with others. Coming. November. For Drummond mr.. Speaker the new trans-pacific, partnership will. Have devastating, effects on Canadian, workers, at. A time when we need economic, leadership the, Liberals come up with a trade deal that's going to cost us, 58,000. Jobs. The. Liberals inked, a deal with, no mention, of climate, change. That's. Hardly progressive. Why. Is this, government promoting, a trade deal that will be devastating to the economy and the environment, not. A minister of international trade mr. speaker I'd like to thank my colleague first question we.
Will Always be there to, support. Stakeholders. But Canadians, know that. There's never been a better time to diversify our markets and that's precisely why mr., speaker we signed the CP TPP, and. Introduced. Legislation this, morning to ratify, it that. Deal, will open new markets and, new opportunities. For our small and medium-sized, businesses, all across the country that, will translate into benefits, for families and workers, in the. Communities, of all members here. In the house Canadians, know they can count on us when it comes to international trade. You're. Choosing the economy, over the environment the, legislation, for trans-pacific partnership was, tabled today despite, overwhelming, evidence, that this deal will be devastating. To Auto Workers and Supply Management, nakta, is in shambles and tribe has launched an attack on, our auto sector with threats of outrageous and illegal tariffs and what are the livers doing to help our workers well, today their table you deal that's a betrayal, to Auto Workers their families, and the communities, that depend on them why does this government insists, on ratifying this terrible, trade deal that will cost our economy close, to. 58,000. Jobs. Stray, speaking I'd like to thank my colleague for a question it seems that it's only the NDP Mr Speaker that does not understand, that it's, there's never been a better time to diversify mr.. Speaker. Our. Nation, but only the NDP does not understand, that there's no better time to diversify that's. Why we signed it the CPT, BP that's, why we introduced a lot this morning mr. speaker because, we want to create new markets, new opportunities. For worker across our nation mr. speaker, Canadians, are watching us know they can trust us when it comes to international trade. The. Honourable member for South laboux order. Order. On. Their app November, for solid blue with, a shout out. Mr.. Speaker I've asked, at least 60, questions about. The border crisis, wanting, to know if there was any plan for dealing with it but I'm still waiting for an answer I have, a report from the US Department of Homeland Security, which confirms, their concern, about illegal, border, crossings both ways, Quebecers, and Canadians feel betrayed by the Liberals who aren't taking, their safety, concerns, seriously, and, apparently, don't want to negotiate with the Americans, it's, the government's responsibility to, enforce, border, integrity, where's, the plan. The. Honorable, Minister of Transport. Mr.. Speaker our government, remains, determined, to. Protect. Canadians. Safety. And police. The border Canadians can be confident, of that the. Conservatives. Want. The, border, militarized. In, violation of international law those, are not serious, solutions, we, continue. To, ensure that Canadian. Legislation. Is enforced, and that our international, obligations. Are met the. November, for Shavuot. Shout mr., speaker, as you can see whatever, they say they, clearly, have no, plan. The. Mr.. The other day said, he was glad the opposition, leader had been to the call to, the border crossing but. Even their own immigration Minister has never been when, it's his portfolio, Canadians. Have taken note and have. Serious doubts about this government's, ability to handle, the problem, we'd like to have some answers is, there. A plan. Mr.. Speaker, in the report. From from. The. The US this. Past week the. Comments, by and large were very favorable about, the relationship, with Canada about what they call the northern border, about, the strength, of security, and other operations. Along, that border. Indeed, the former Secretary, of Homeland Security who, is now cheese, and staff in the White House, had, nothing but praise for the Canadian, border and said that, he, was happy to work with Canada to ensure that that border was constantly, thinning. To, the advantage, of both countries. Not. A member for best, romanian. TV mr., speaker let's, make. Things clear the, Liberals have been cutting, funding. At the border since 2015.
302. Million in cuts for, criminal. Investigations and. With the Prime Minister's gaffe on Twitter the border has become a sieve, and our, Border Services officials, have become tourism. Guides my questions for the Minister of immigration. Not Public Safety, what, is the plan to. Stop this, illegal. Movement, across the border, now. A Minister, of Public Safety, the. Honourable gentleman speaks, of budget. Reductions with, respect to CBSA, if he if he in fact follows. The. Governmental, decisions. With respect to those. Fiscal measures he, will find that they were implemented. In. 2014. He. Was the minister, at the time. Remember. All. The. Honourable, member for Scarborough Agincourt. Access. To reliable. Telecommunication. Services, at an affordable price is essential, for Canadians. However, Canadians. Currently, pay some of the highest prices for wireless and Internet services, in comparison, to other developed, countries, making, them inaccessible, for some this is something that I hear repeatedly, from many of my constituents, can, the Minister please share with us what, the government plans to do to ensure Canadians. Have access, to reliable affordable. In quality, wireless and Internet services. Innovation. Mr.. Speaker I'd like to thank the member from Scarborough Agincourt, for her advocacy on this issue she's, been a true champion, and we, believe Canadians, deserve quality low, priced telecommunication. Services, and that's, why we've asked industry to step up in a big way into. The connecting, families, program low-cost. Internet will be provided, to hundreds, of thousands, of Canadian families right, across Canada, mr., speaker our government, will always fight for lower prices and better prices for consumers thank you very much honourable. Member for Thornhill. Mr.. Speaker the Liberals moral, equivalence, with Israel, and its enemies, is notorious. And when, they had an opportunity to stand against, a one-sided, motion, against Israel, at the United Nations yesterday. And in, direct contradiction, to votes in this house this week they did it again the, Liberals directed, Canada's, diplomats, to sit on their hands to abstain, from standing. With the only democracy in the Middle East mr.. Speaker the Liberals always show up for the annual walk, with Israel, as Fairweather. Friends, would why, did the Liberals refuse to stand with Israel yesterday. Continue. To make Canada's, long-standing. Steadfast, support, for Israel a partisan, issue despite being told not to do so. And. We believe that resolutions. Up you and should, accurately reflect the situation on the ground that's why Canada, supported, a u.s. amendment, to yesterday's, resolution, that would have explicitly, referred. To the role by Hamas in. The situation, in Gaza Hamas, is, a terrorist organization, and, Canada calls on the international, community to stand up to Hamas Hamas, must, intend, its incitement, to violence against, Israel. Will. Call for it to come to order, remember. For Vancouver. Kings wave as, we stand on the cusp of cannabis, legalization we.
Face The deep irony, that Canadians. Continue, to be arrested, at alarming, rates, for behavior, that will soon be legal it, was inexcusable for, the Liberal government to exclude, pardons, from the cannabis actonel the Senate the so-called chamber. Of sober second thought has, also neglected. To address this glaring omission it's enough to question their sobriety mr., speaker when. Will the hundreds of thousands, of Canadians, who carry unjust, records for, simple, possession finally. Receive, amnesty. Vancouver. Kings way to be cautious with his language. One. Of the men administer public safety above other closely. Mr., speaker Parliament, is in the process, of dealing, with two, very important, pieces of legislation c-45. And, c-46. They. Are together. Making. Some of the most profound changes with, respect to the. The. Handling the legal handling, of of, cannabis, ever in the history of Canada, when. That process, is completed. The. Law will. Change, and. At that time mr. speaker the government, will consider all appropriate measures to ensure, fairness in our system I had to pay the suffering now. Remember, for Sheppard mr., speaker today the government, announced its vision, of the new homelessness. Partnering, strategy, this. Announcement, is the culmination, of over a year's, work including. The release of the first ever national housing, strategy, with, its commitment, of two billion dollars to combat homelessness as, well. As canada-wide. Consultations. With, experts, and community stakeholders, could. The minister responsible housing, explained, to the house how the new homeless partnership homelessness, partnering, strategy, will help fight homelessness in, Canada, notable. Minister thank.

Federal, leadership, in, housing. To make sure everyone has a safe. And affordable roof over their head, thank you. Clear. To the parliamentary secretary when, they refused to stand with our allies we will challenge, them to do better that is our job that is what we were sent here to do. Security. Council just to abstain once they get there mr. speaker the parliamentary, secretary voted. The Prime Minister voted to immediately, designate, the Iranian to the Islamic Revolutionary, Guard Corps as a listed, terrorist entity under the Criminal Code that's how they voted so when will the Liberals follow the will of the house and immediately designate the IRGC a terrorist organization. In. Fact the IR DC's cut, force is already, listed as a terrorist entity, and that is the branch, of the of the force that in in fact. Involves. Itself in terrorist operations. In addition, mr. speaker, Iran is a state sponsor. Of terror all listed, under the state, immunity, act and, mr. speaker the the. Senior, officials, of that regime are already, subject to special economic measures. Under, the under, the SEMA legislation. The, process, for listing it actually involves an investigation. By the RCMP and CSIS. And that process will go forward. Now. November 4 VV. Aldino, mr.. Speaker when, it comes to homegrown, marijuana. Yesterday. That Prime Minister answered, to, explain his power trip but, he was ignoring, the provinces, the opposition, the Senate the cities and the, police all, the better to fight organized, crime. Uh-huh.
