>> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR OSHAWA >> Mr SPEAKER, THE LIBERALS HAVE IMPLEMENTED MAJOR POLICY CHANGES THAT HAVE HURT CANADIAN COMPETITIVENESS AND UNBELIEVABLY WE LEARNED THE LIBERALS HAVE MADE ABSOLUTELY NO ROOM IN THEIR BUDGET TO SUPPORT THOSE AFFECTED BY THE TRADE WAR ON CANADIAN STEEL AND ALUMINUM UNCERTAINTY KILLS JOBS THE LIBERALS SAID THEY HAD A PLAN

THEY PROMISED THEY CONSULTED WITH CANADIAN INDUSTRIES THEY PROMISED TO AVOID UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES AND JOB LOSSES YET WE COULD SOON SEE THE LATEST VICTIMS OF THE LIBERAL ANTICOMPETITIVE POLICIES OSHAWA FAMILIES ARE WORRIED AUTO MAKERS IN OSHAWA WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY TARIFFS ON SPECIALTY STEEL IMPORTED FROM THE UNITED STATES IN ORDER TO BUILD CARS TO NORTH AMERICAN STANDARDS

THESE TARIFFS WILL HURT EVERYONE WE NEED TO DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HELP THE GOOD NEWS IS SOME LEADERS GET IF THE PREMIER DESIGNATE OF ONTARIO UNDERSTANDS THAT AMERICAN PLANTS DON'T HAVE TO PAY THE PRIME MINISTER'S CARBON TAX SO HE IMMEDIATELY IS CANCELLING ONTARIO'S CARBON TAX

LAURENT >> [Voice of Translator]: Mr SPEAKER, THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT WANTS TO IMPLEMENT MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THAT'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 APPROACH HAS JUST HIT A WALL BECAUSE TWO PROVINCES, QUÉBEC AND MANITOBA, ARE REFUSING WILL THE LIBERAL GOVERNMENT RESPECT PROVINCIAL JURISDICTION AND [INDISCERNIBLE] THE PROVINCES >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF HEALTH >> [Voice of Translator]: THANK YOU, Mr

WHO HAVE LEGALIZED CANNABIS >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR LOUIS St LAURENT >> [Voice of Translator]: Mr SPEAKER, WHAT A LACK OF RESPECT

I'M NOT THE ONE SAYING IT IT'S THE LIBERAL MINISTER OF QUÉBEC WHO WAS RESPECTING HIS PROVINCIAL JURISDICTIONQUÉBEC T HOME CULTIVATION Mr SPEAKER, IT'S SAD TO SAY THAT THE REALITY IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS BEING SOVEREIGN AND NOT LISTENING TO EVERYONE

IT DIDN'T LISTEN TO FIRST NATIONS, THEY DIDN'T LISTEN TO QUÉBEC AND MANITOBA CAN THE PRIME MINISTER ASSURE US OF ONE THING: THAT THERE WON'T BE ANY POT PRODUCTION AT 24 SUSSEX >> [Voice of Translator]: 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 DON'T END UP IN THE HANDS OF ORGANIZED CRIME

THE CURRENT SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING IT'S ALLOWING CRIMINALS TO PROFIT FROM THE SYSTEM AND 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 UM WITH A GOOD BILL TO PROSECUTE OUR YOUTH >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR MILTON

>> THANK YOU, Mr SPEAKER Mr SPEAKER, RIGHT NOW FISHERMEN ARE ASSEMBLING A BLOCKADE OF LOBSTER TRAPS OUTSIDE THE OFFICES OF THE MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FROM ACADIE BATHURST BECAUSE OF THE MINISTER OF FISHERIES AND OCEANS EXTREME DECISION TO CLOSE THE LOBSTER FISHERY IN THE GULF OF ST LAWRENCE

THE MINISTER KNOWS 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 MINISTER'S ATTENTION? >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER >> Mr SPEAKER, I CAN'T IMAGINE MY CONSERVATIVE COLLEAGUE WOULD SUGGEST WE NOT TAKE THE MEASURES NECESSARY TO PROTECT THE RIGHT WHALE BECAUSE SHE WILL UNDERSTAND AS ALL CANADIANS DO THAT PROTECTING THE NORTH LAN TAKE RIGHT WHALE IS VITAL TO ENSURING THE CONTINUED ACCESS TO INTERNATIONAL MARKETS FOR OVER $6 BILLION OF CANADIAN FISH AND SEAFOOD EXPORTS Mr

SPEAKER, WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS DECISION IS DIFFICULT, WE UNDERSTAND THAT FISHERS AND PLANT WORKERS 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 >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR MILTON >> THANK YOU, Mr SPEAKER

FOR WEEKS THE LIBERALS HAVE REFUSED TO TELL CANADIANS HOW MUCH THEIR CARBON TAX IS GOING TO COST THEM AND TO USE THE PRIME MINISTER'S WORDS, THIS IS VERY INSULTING TO CANADIANS THEY'VE BEEN COMPLETELY STRAIGHTFORWARD WITH THE FACT THEY INTEND TO PROCEED WITH THE CARBON TAX, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO TELLING US EXACTLY HOW MUCH IT'S GOING TO COST, THEY'RE SILENT VOTERS IN ONTARIO HAVE SPOKEN WHAT THEY SAID AT THE BALLOT BOX IS THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE A CARBON TAX Mr

SPEAKER, THEY HAVE A CHANCE TODAY WILL THEY AT LEAST TELL US HOW MUCH IT'S GOING TO COST >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> THANK YOU, Mr SPEAKER

WE PUBLISHED A REPORT ON APRIL 30TH DOING EXACTLY THAT IT TALKS ABOUT PRICING POLLUTION IT TALKS ABOUT THE 80 TO 90 MILLION TONNES EQUIVALENT OF TAKING 25 MILLION CARS OFF THE ROAD BUT WE BELIEVE PROVINCES ARE BEST PLACED IN DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH REVENUES WE'VE BEEN CLEAR

REVENUES WILL STAY IN THE PROVINCE 80% OF CANADIANS LIVE IN A PROVINCE WHERE THEY HAVE A PRICE ON POLLUTANTS AND THEY'VE GIVEN BACK MONEY IN TAX CUTS, IN REBATES, THEY'VE INVESTED IN CLEAN INNOVATION THEY SHOULD ASK THOSE PROVINCES WHAT THEY'RE DOING WITH THEIR REVENUE >> The Speaker: ORDER THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR MILTON

>> Mr SPEAKER, WHAT I'M ASKING THIS MINISTER IS FOR HER TO TELL US WHAT HER DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS TOLD HER IS THE COST TO CANADIAN FAMILIES UNFAIR CARBON TAX SHE KNOWS WHAT THE ANSWER IS BUT BREAKING NEWS TODAY, WE UNDERSTAND WHY ONTARIANS 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

Mr SPEAKER, WHY WON'T THESE MPs AT LEAST TELL VOTERS IN CANADA HOW MUCH OF THEIR CASH DO THEY INTEND ON [Inaudible] >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> Mr SPEAKER, I DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH CLEARER I CAN BE ALL REVENUES [INDISCERNIBLE] GO BACK INTO THE PROVINCE

IT IS UP TO THE PROVINCES TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO 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 CAN DO NEITHER >> The Speaker: — ONLY FOR SO MUCH NOISE MEMBERS KNOW THEY'RE REQUIRED TO NOT INTERRUPT IN THE HOUSE WHEN SOMEONE ELSE HAS THE FLOOR THE TIME TO SPEAK IS WHEN THEY HAVE THE FLOOR EACH SIDE GETS ITS CHANCE TO TAKE PART IN DEBATE

WE WAIT WE HAVE OUR TURN [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR RIMOUSKI >> Mr SPEAKER, THE FORMER GOVERNOR, BANK OF CANADA, SAID YESTERDAY [INDISCERNIBLE] TRANS MOUNTAIN EXPANSION PROJECT AND THEY'LL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT

THE RIGHT TO PROTECT [INDISCERNIBLE] IS PROTECTED BY THE CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS IT'S FUNDAMENTAL TO OUR DEMOCRACY WILL THE GOVERNMENT [INDISCERNIBLE] OR DO THEY AGREE WITH THEM THAT THE PIPELINE NOT GO THROUGH AT ANY COST, INCLUDING THE LIVES OF PROTESTERS >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> OUR GOVERNMENT BELIEVES IN THE RIGHT OF PEACEFUL PROTEST

>> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR RIMOUSKI >> [Voice of Translator]: Mr SPEAKER, THAT'S NOT VERY REASSURING I WOULD HAVE LIKED A LONGER RESPONSE THAN THAT NOW, I'D REMIND YOU DECEMBER 2016, THE MINISTER OF MINISTER OFNATURAL RESOURCES INE SAID THE PEACEFUL PROTESTERS AGAINST THE PIPELINE MIGHT END UP FACING THE CANADIAN ARMED FORCES

AFTER SUCH WORDS FROM THE 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 ESSENTIAL TOOL TO DEMOCRACY BUT CALL OUT THE WORDS OF DAVID DODGE >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF THE ENVIRONMENT >> [Voice of Translator]: WE BELIEVE IN CANADIANS' RIGHT TO PROTEST PEACEFULLY >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR ROSEMONT LAY PATRY

>> [Voice of Translator]: Mr SPEAKER, A STUDY HAS SHOWN PIPELINE MANAGEMENT IN THIS COUNTRY IS A JOKE IN 2017, THE NUMBER OF INCIDENTS, LEAKS, AND SPILLS AND OTHER PROBLEMS INCREASED BY 41% SO-CALLED AUTOMATIC DETECTION SYSTEMS FAILED TO DETECT HALF OF THESE INCIDENTS WHEN COMPANIES GET CAUGHT, WHAT HAPPENS? NOTHING

NOTICES OF VIOLATION AND OTHER ORDERS ARE SYSTEMATICALLY IGNORED AND NO ONE OF LOSES THEIR LICENSE WHEN WILL THIS GOVERNMENT CLEAN UP ITS ACT AND DEAL WITH THESE DISRESPECTFUL OIL COMPANIES? >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF TRANSPORT >> [Voice of Translator]: IT'S THE DUTY OF ANY GOVERNMENT TO GET OIL TO MARKETS AND IT'S 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 IN FEDERAL LEGISLATION DEVELOPERS WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE REGARDLESS OF FAULT IN CASE OF INCIDENT

>> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR NANAIMO-LADYSMITH >> AS LIBERALS PUT BILLIONS INTO KINDER MORGAN, BETRAYING THEIR PROMISE, SUNNY WAYS RENEWABLE FUTURE, PIPELINE SPILLS AND ACCIDENTS ARE RISING A NEW REPORT ON OIL PIPELINE SAFETY FOUND LESS THAN 50% OF INCIDENTS ARE REPORTED THE NATIONAL ENERGY BOARD IS "NOT CAPABLE OF HANDLING THE WORK ON ITS PLATE" WHY IS THE GOVERNMENT BUY A LEAKY OLD PIPELINE KNOWING THESE RISKS AND HOW WILL IT POLICE ITSELF WHEN THE NEXT LEAK HAPPENS? >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF TRANSPORT

>> Mr SPEAKER, AS I JUST SAID, IT IS THE DUTY OF GOVERNMENT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE GET OUR RESOURCES TO MARKET 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 Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CARLETON

>> Mr SPEAKER, WHEN I REPORTED TO THE HOUSE THAT THE FRASER INSTITUTE CALCULATED THAT 81% 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, "YES, MOST MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES ARE PAYING MORE IN INCOME TAX" SO WE CAN'T TRUST THIS GOVERNMENT ON TAXES WE ASKED THEM TO COME CLEAN AND TELL US HOW MUCH WILL THIS CARBON TAX COST THE SAME MIDDLE CLASS FAMILY

>> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF FINANCE — ENVIRONMENT >> Mr SPEAKER, I'M GOING TO KEEP ON SAYING THE SAME THING WE PUBLISHED A REPORT ON APRIL 30TH I AM HAPPY TO PERSONALLY GIVE IT TO THE MEMBER OPPOSITE

WHAT DOES IT SAY? IT SAYS THAT PRICING POLLUTION WORKS, IT SAYS THAT IT REDUCES EMISSIONS BY 80 TO 90 MILLION TONNES, AND ARE THAT WE'VE BEEN CLEAR REVENUES GO BACK NOT PROVINCES WHERE THEY COME FROM 80% OF CANADIANS LIVE IN ONTARIO, QUÉBEC, ALBERTA, OR BC, WHERE THERE'S A PRICE ON POLLUTION YOU CAN GO ASK THOSE PROVINCES WHAT THEY DO WITH THE REVENUES

FOR EXAMPLE, BRITISH COLUMBIA GIVES THE REVENUE BACK IN TAX CREDITS >> The Speaker: ORDER THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR ABBOTTSFORD WILL COME TO ORDER, PLEASE THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CARLETON >> 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 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 COST

>> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> Mr SPEAKER, I WANT TO TALK TO CANADIANS CANADIANS — [INDISCERNIBLE] ASK WHAT PROVINCES ARE GOING TO DO WITH THE REVENUE THROUGH THE SPEAKER — I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF MISINFORMATION HERE

MISINFORMATION FROM THE OTHER SIDE ALL REVENUES WILL STAY IN THE PROVINCE, AND THE PROVINCES CAN GIVE BACK THE REVENUES AS TAX CUTS BUT WHAT CANADIANS REALLY WANT TO KNOW IS WHY DOES THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY'S CLIMATE PLAN >> The Speaker: MEMBERS KNOW ABOUT THE RULE THAT MEMBERS SHOULD ADDRESS THE CHAIR IT'S DESIGNED TO AVOID MEMBERS FROM REFERRING TO ONE ANOTHER AS YOU, BUT I THINK IT'S BEST TO KEEP TO THAT RULE IN GENERAL

THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CARLETON >> 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 $160 A LITRE 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 [Inaudible] [APPLAUSE] >> The Speaker: ORDER MEMBERS SEEM TO BE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT THE HONOURABLE MEMBER OF ENVIRONMENT ORDER

>> THANK YOU, Mr SPEAKER WE DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH A STUNT THAT THE CONSERVATIVES ARE GOING TO [Indiscernible] BECAUSE WE HAVE ALREADY ANSWERED THE QUESTION 80% OF CANADIANS LIVE IN A PROVINCE WHERE THE PROVINCE HAS DECIDED WHAT TO DO WITH THE REVENUES THE REVENUES HAVE GONE BACK IN TAX CUTS, GONE INTO INVESTMENT AND CLEAN INNOVATION

WE HAVE BEEN CLEAR THAT PROVINCES ARE BEST PLACED TO DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH THE REVENUE BUT ONCE AGAIN, WHAT CANADIANS WANT TO KNOW IS [INDISCERNIBLE] CONSERVATIVES' CLIMATE CHANGE PLAN >> The Speaker: SPEAK THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CARLETON >> WE KNOW THEY CLAIM THEY'RE GOING TO COLLECT ALL THIS TAX AND GIVE IT TO PROVINCIAL POLITICIANS THAT'S NOT OUR QUESTION

WE'RE ASKING HOW MUCH THE TAX WILL COST T HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, 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 [Inaudible] >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> Mr

WE HAVE GIVEN MONEY BACK TO CANADIANS THROUGH THE CANADA CHILD BENEFIT TO NINE OUT OF TEN FAMILIES ARE BETTER OFF WE RAISED 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

>> The Speaker: ORDER THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CALGARY-NOSE HILL >> Mr SPEAKER, IF WE TAKE AN INTERSECTIONAL GENDER LENS, THE COST OF THE CARBON TAX, IT'S ARGUABLE LOW INCOME WOMEN, PARTICULARLY SENIOR WOMEN AND SINGLE MOTHERS, WILL BEAR THE DISPROPORTIONATE COST OF THE CARBON TAX THE PRIME MINISTER HAS SAID THAT POVERTY AFFECTS US, 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? >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF FOR THE STATUS OF WOMEN >> Mr SPEAKER, WE'RE THRILLED TO SEE THE CONSERVATIVES TAKE AN INTEREST IN GENDER EQUALITY I'D LIKE TO REMIND THE HONOURABLE MEMBER THAT WE GAVE MORE FUNDS TO FAMILIES WHO NEED THE 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 RAISED 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 >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR CALGARY-NOSE HILL >> REAL CHANGE 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 Mr

SPEAKER, THIS GOVERNMENT IS NOT PROVIDING CANADIANS REPRESENTATION AS THEY'RE INCREASING THEIR TAX THEY HAVE THIS DATA WHY ARE THEY HIDING IT FROM CANADIANS? >> The Speaker: HONOURABLE MINISTER OF FOR THE STATUS OF WOMEN >> Mr SPEAKER, CHILD BENEFIT PLAN NINE OUT OF TEN CANADIAN FAMILIES ARE BETTER OFF UNDER OUR PLAN THAN THEY WERE UNDER THE CONSERVATIVES' PLAN

IF MY HONOURABLE COLLEAGUES 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 A HOUSING STRATEGY TEN YEARS, $40 BILLION AT LEAST 25% 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

BUT THEY NEED TO WALK THE TALK THE QUESTION IS SIMPLE: WILL THE GOVERNMENT DEFEND THE SUPPLY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN ITS ENTIRETY DURING NAFTA NEGOTIATIONS? YES OR NO? >> The Speaker: [Voice of Translator]: THE HONOURABLE 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 MINISTER OFFOREIGN AFFAIRS, CABT MINISTERS, AND THE ENTIRE CAUCUS AS WELL AS TRADE NEGOTIATORS FOR CANADA HAVE BEEN CLEAR AND UNEQUIVOCAL FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE NAFTA NEGOTIATIONS

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 Speaker: HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR FOOTHILLS >> Mr SPEAKER, THE AGRICULTURE MINISTER CLAIMS THAT CANADIAN FARMERS ARE FULLY SUPPORTIVE OF THE LIBERAL CARBON TAX

I DON'T THINK THEY ARE ACTUALLY YOU CONSULTING WITH CANADIAN FARMERS AT ALL THE PRESIDENT OF THE WESTERN CANADIAN WHEAT GROWERS SAID FARMERS DON'T AGREE ON EVERYTHING BUT IF THERE'S ONE ISSUE THEY STAND TOGETHER ON, IT'S 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? >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> Mr SPEAKER, LET'S START BY NOTING WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND NO ONE KNOWS THIS MORE THAN FARMERS WHEN I TALK TO FARMERS, THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT DROUGHT THEY'RE 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 IF THEY'RE GOING TO [INDISCERNIBLE] FUELS USED BY FARMERS IT IS UP TO THEM TO DESIGN A SYSTEM THAT MAKES SENSE IN THEIR PROVINCE, IT'S UP TO THEM TO DECIDE WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO WITH THE REVENUES >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MEMBER FOR PRINCE ALBERT >> THANK YOU, Mr SPEAKER

THE LIBERALS REFUSE TO TELL US HOW MUCH IT WILL COST Mr SPEAKER, WHEN THE LIBERALS COME CLEAN ON THIS CARBON TAX? >> The Speaker: THE HONOURABLE MINISTER OF ENVIRONMENT >> Mr SPEAKER, AS I SAID, FARMERS AND RANCHERS UNDERSTAND THAT WE NEED TO PROTECT OUR ENVIRONMENT, WE NEED TO TAKE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

AS WE'VE SAID, IT IS UP TO PROVINCES LIKE SASKATCHEWAN TO DETERMINE HOW THEY'RE GOING TO IMPLEMENT PRICING AND THEY CAN GIVE THE REVENUES RIGHT BACK THEY CAN GIVE REVENUES BACK TO THE FARMERS THEY CAN DECIDE TO CUT THE PROVINCIAL SALES TAX 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 'CAUSE WE HAVE KIDS, WE HAVE GRANDKIDS, AND THEY ARE [INDISCERNIBLE] THEY ALSO ARE [Inaudible] >> The Speaker: ORDER, ORDER
