  • Spoke about Fighting Foreign Corruption Act

    Mr. Speaker, the speech from the member for Vancouver East, we would say is almost across the board. She has covered so many topics. However, when she started her speech she spoke of the fact that there have been so many time allocations in the House that our debate has been limited; I believe she said it has been 47 times. ... more

  • Spoke about Consular Affairs

    Mr. Speaker, for the past several weeks the member for Hamilton Mountain and I have been pressing the government regarding the case of two Hamilton men, Nick Miele, and his 18-year-old cousin, Ben Constantini , who have been behind bars in a Dominican jail since the early morning hours of May 28. Close family members are gravely concerned that these men are in ill health, and that they have not been afforded due process. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Justice

    One of the things that comes to mind in listening to Ms. Galt, Ms. Malo, and Mr. Samson is consultation and support for their mental health, the kind of pressures that are put on families, the horrendous pressures of the unknown. One of the biggest fears of all of us is the unknown. I spent a night in a house with an NCR patient who had murdered my sister 10 years before. I didn't sleep. I was 12 years old. My imagination ran wild that whole weekend. As to the word “brutal” in the bill, if a parent takes the life of their own child, no matter the brutality of the act, the fact that they've done it in itself is brutal. It just strikes me that we need to do more with this bill. There's more that can be done for victims' rights than what this bill does. If we got expert consultation, we could work to develop it even further. ... more
