  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act

    Mr. Speaker, Canada is in last place because it is the last country to pass this type of legislation. Our country has become a laughingstock. This government has known for years that this type of legislation is essential. ... more

  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act

    Mr. Speaker, people who are corrupt outside the country will also be corrupt inside the country. They are the same people. That is clear from the criminal charges that were recently laid. ... more

    Mr. Speaker, I would like to state right from the outset that the NDP is in favour of Bill S-14. We would have liked the legislation to go further and move faster, but it is a good start. ... more

  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act > Sitting Resumed

    Mr. Speaker, if we are serious about fighting corruption, we should also discuss the often inappropriate behaviour of the Canadian government, which provides scholarships, immigration opportunities and jobs in our embassies to foreign students whose parents or families are associated with foreign governments. ... more

  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act

    Mr. Speaker, corruption is an evil thing that is very similar to cancer. Unfortunately, when Canadian companies are allowed to get away with things too easily, once they become corrupt, it rubs off on the lives of Canadians as well as on our institutions and our representation. ... more

    Mr. Chair, I challenge your ruling. What you just did is unacceptable.

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    Mr. Chair, we have a serious problem here. A parliamentarian has the right to speak for as long as he or she likes. In the same breath, you said that my comments were interesting. You may not find them as relevant as you'd like, but show me where in the blues someone else made the point I am making. And that point is the dichotomy that O'Brien and Bosc explain from pages 60 to 96 of their reference work. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    I tried to re-examine my comments in their entirety in light of Mr. Dykstra's motion, which basically seeks a postponement. He is asking for a 30-day extension, which he explains, and you accepted his reasons. With all due respect, I am telling this committee that this motion represents a violation. There are other solutions that would be acceptable to everyone. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    That is a clear attempt to take away a parliamentarian's freedom of speech by claiming that I said things I did not. Frankly, Mr. Chair, what I have been saying this whole time is that, when it comes down to it, this motion seeks to—
