Recognizing HoC Staff

Mr. Speaker, as we close out this session and go into another election, we often celebrate the contributions of MPs who have decided to retire from this place.

It is also important to take some time to acknowledge the incredible work done by people who serve around the parliamentary precinct. That is why I would like to recognize Marguerite Charlebois.Marguerite has worked in the parliamentary restaurant since January 21, 1981, close to four decades. She will be retiring at the end of this week. Imagine trying to manage all of the different political parties, people and personalities and making sure they end up in the right place and at the right table so their conversations are kept private as much as possible.

Andrew Scheer Unveils A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment


GATINEAU, QC – The Hon. Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and of the Official Opposition, today unveiled his plan to fight climate change and protect Canada’s environment. 

“Conservatives have a proud legacy when it comes to protecting Canada’s natural environment and improving Canada’s environmental performance,” said Mr. Scheer. “Our record of environmental achievement stands in stark contrast to the Liberal record of failure.”

Conservatives created and expanded the National Parks system, negotiated the Canada-US acid rain treaty, brought in the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and much more. 

A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment builds on our proud Conservative legacy and is based on three guiding principles:

The Carbon Tax

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister pretends he has a plan for the environment. He says his carbon tax will achieve the carbon emissions reduction targets under the Paris accord. However, his own government figures confirm that this is simply not true.

Just last week, the Parliamentary Budget Officer released a new report, which found that the Liberal carbon tax would have to increase to $102 per tonne to achieve Canada’s Paris accord climate targets. That is five times more expensive than it is today. This means that Canadians would pay more for groceries and home heating, and it would add 23¢ per litre to the cost of gas.Saying things louder about carbon tax does not make them true,

Bill C100

Madam Speaker, the minister is talking about ratification. I would ask her to talk in a little more detail about what that may look like here in Canada, given what is going on in the U.S. right now.

The Democrats do not seem that eager to move forward with ratification. What is the thought process of the government when it comes to ratification? Is this something we are looking at doing before we leave here for the summer? Given the fact that we are here for only two more weeks, it does not sound like we are in lockstep with the U.S.

Is it something the government would consider calling Parliament back in the summertime to ratify?

CUSMA Trade Agreement

Madam Speaker, as has been mentioned before by my colleague from the NDP, I would caution the government to move prudently on this.

We have already seen the Democrats not wanting to give Mr. Trump any kind of victory. Therefore, we have not seen a lot of co-operation from the U.S. If we get too far ahead of ourselves regarding ratification, that could be an issue. Therefore, I would echo the comments of my colleague from the NDP that as a result of the uncertainty we see in the U.S., we need to be cautious as we move forward with ratification.

The government’s legislation aims to implement the Canada-United States agreement.
