House of Commons Hansard of the 42nd Parliament, 1st Session. The original version is on Parliament's site. The word of the day was environment. The Speaker Liberal Geoff Regan. We will now have the singing of O Canadaled by the hon. Speaker, the media has confirmed that the whole Trans Mountain pipeline assessment process was nothing but a charade. We now know that the entire process was hurried along at Kinder Morgan's request.
We know that public servants were ordered to say yes to the pipeline by their political masters. We know that submissions from first nations, including the report submitted by Chief Maureen Thomas on November 28,went straight into the shredder.
We know that scientists' concerns about marine oil spills were brushed off on November 29, What was the rush? Members will recall that November 29 was the same day a reception organized by pipeline lobbyists was held here on Parliament Hill. It was the day the government approved the Trans Mountain project, reminding us that Canada is at the beck and call of private oil companies, regardless of who is in power.
Norman Peters Statements By Members.
Speaker, it is with great sadness that I stand to recognize the death of Norman Peters, loved by all Islanders as the Bearded Skipper. Norman was a lifelong fisherman from North Rustico, serving as president of the North Shore Fishermen's Association for two decades, representing fishermen in many roles in the P. Fishermen's Association, and serving on many committees for his industry and the province.
He was a giant as a representative for the lobster fishery on a trade mission to China. Norman was loved by all who met him. His image as the Bearded Skipper was seen as a Canadian symbol for the fishery. He inspired the building of a fishery museum in his hometown and ensured that the harbour was in good stead, and his fishing charters were an experience to behold, a fishing trip never forgotten by locals and tourists alike.
Norman was active in his church and his community. No matter the cause, he would lend a helping hand. Our condolences go out to his wife Marie, son Corey, daughter Colleen, and family. David Crutcher Statements By Members. Speaker, I rise today in memory of David Crutcher, a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend, who passed away suddenly on April 3, David was a man of faith, a greatly involved member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints. He was an engineer by trade and well known for serving as the president of the Progressive Group for Independent Business.
He was heavily involved in politics in Calgary. He was a great volunteer for many Conservative candidates across the city. I will remember fondly door knocking with him. David was a leader, a leader who did not let friends and volunteers fall behind. He had a warm word for everyone and was armed with a smile as well as a kind handshake. All of us have a David in our communities: remarkably accomplished, a big contributor to local civics, the glue that holds people together, and a gentle soul offering a helping hand to all. My sincerest condolences go out to his wife Mary, his family, and his friends.
Speaker, Canada has a proud tradition of brave men and women fighting for their country, and I am honoured to recognize Male looking to Dieppe massage with a female of Nova Scotia's finest veterans, the late Fraser Peter Hutchinson. He escaped the prisoner of war camp and spent months trekking across Nazi-occupied Europe to find his way back to Britain. When he returned, he was the first Canadian soldier in the Second World War to receive the prestigious Military Medal.
He went on to participate in the invasion of Sicily, where he became the first Canadian to capture an Italian prisoner. Although he returned home inhe continued to serve Canada with valour until Hutchinson risked his life Male looking to Dieppe massage with a female numerous occasions for our freedom but never wavered in his resolve to do his duty for his country. Hutchinson was a true Canadian hero, and I am proud to recognize him in this House.
Speaker, today my colleagues and I in the New Democratic Party stand in support of those living with cancer and their families by wearing a yellow daffodil. These yellow flowers are a symbol of strength, courage, and hope for those affected by cancer and are a message that things can get better. I encourage all members of this House and all people in Canada to share their time, talents, and treasures with organizations that support those living with cancer across the country. Olivia Monton Statements By Members.
For the past 10 years, Olivia Monton has shown that caring, tenacity, and humanism can change Canada. Inshe created Live for the Cause, a foundation that encourages people of all ages to experience the rewards of giving to others and our communities. Like Olivia, we should never forget to give at least a little bit, whether it is financial, material, or time. I would like to invite my colleagues to attend this event and to help me congratulate Olivia for her numerous accomplishments.
Speaker, today I am honoured to wear the daffodil pin in support of the Canadian Cancer Society's national fundraising campaign. I work with its national office through my role as the shadow minister of health, and I also support my local chapter in Sarnia—Lambton. Daffodil Month is held each April, and the money raised from this campaign helps the Cancer Society with its critical work in the fight against cancer.
Thousands of volunteers across Canada have been working to raise vitally needed funds for cancer research and support programs. Today in the House of Commons, we all wear our daffodil pins in support of this worthy cause. I ask MPs to share footage of themselves wearing the daffodil pin, using thefight. Together we can make a difference for the almost one million Canadians living with cancer. Bell Island Statements By Members. Nick Whalen Liberal St.
John's East, NL. Speaker, a unique feature in my riding are the rugged and determined cliffs of Bell Island. Even more unique are the rugged and determined residents who continue to fight for the survival of their communities. Now, 52 years after the closure of the Bell Island iron ore mines, less than a quarter of the peak population remains, as people seek to rekindle opportunities in farming and to create new opportunities in tourism and services for retirees returning from military service or from their satellite community in Cambridge, Ontario. I was delighted to attend Jonny Harris's hilarious and uplifting performance last year as part of a Still Standing episode, where he took a few liberties in celebrating the colourful characters on the island.
Through the Canada summer jobs program, we are supporting 36 student leadership opportunities this summer. I believe in Bell Island and look forward to listening to the community at a town hall on Tuesday, May 15, from to 8 p. Michael's Parish hall. All are welcome.
The Environment Statements By Members. Speaker, I know a place where innovation thrives, where international markets are within reach, and where the environment and the economy truly go hand in hand. Why, it is Napanee, of course. This rural town in Lennox and Addington county is where FireRein just announced a contract with the U.
This is a perfect example of how Canadians in our biggest cities or in our smallest towns can lead the way to a clean and innovative economy. I thank the members of the Enterprise Station of the Stone Mills volunteer fire department for being the first to bring this product on board, and I congratulate the whole team at FireRein. It is given to Ontarians who have made an exceptional difference in organ donation and transplantation.
Ryley received a heart transplant at seven months of age, and they have dedicated the past 13 years to volunteering at awareness events and sharing their story with the media. I thank Joanna and Ryley for their contribution to organ and tissue donation awareness and for their involvement and leadership in our community. Hospice Vaughan Statements By Members. Speaker, on April 27, Hospice Vaughan and all residents of the city of Vaughan will celebrate the ground-breaking of an exceptional centre of Male looking to Dieppe massage with a female, a place where people coping with a life-limiting illness will find support in a time of need, as will their families and friends.
Located in my riding of Vaughan—Woodbridge, the new bed residential hospice and health research facility will support palliative care as well as grief and bereavement services in a compassionate and home-like setting. We would not be celebrating this milestone without the dedicated staff and volunteers at Hospice Vaughan or without the generous support of private donors in our community.
Everyone deserves dignity and the best end-of-life care. This residence means that patients and their families will not need to leave the familiarity of our beautiful city. I am very proud of the work that Hospice Vaughan is doing. I urge all my colleagues to me in congratulating everyone who played a Male looking to Dieppe massage with a female in this noble initiative.
Pierre Descoteaux Statements By Members. Pierre was always very active in his community. His family and friends knew him as a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Speaker, at a. Those who survived the carnage would be treated by nurses, including the Augustinian nun named Sister Agnes-Marie Valois. Her compassion was only matched by her bravery.
On one occasion, she stood between a captured Canadian soldier and a Nazi pistol, declaring that the bullet would need to pass through her first. Sadly, we learned recently of her passing at the age of May you rest in peace. Speaker, today is National Daffodil Day. The daffodil is the symbol of strength and courage in the fight against cancer.
I wear this pin in memory of my late husband Arnold, and for all the people living with cancer and wanting to conquer this disease. Over the course of their lives, one in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer. There are many different ways to support a person living with cancer, whether it is just being a quiet supporter, offering a meal to the families, sending a quick text message with no reply needed, telling a joke or funny story, providing a ride to treatments and appointments, volunteering at the Cancer Society, or giving a hug or a massage.
Everyone can make a simple difference for people living with cancer. Women's Shelters Statements By Members. I want to acknowledge their generosity. I also want to thank the executive director of the transition society and all of the amazing staff and volunteers who do such tremendous work. These people save lives. Their dedication and hard work is so appreciated. Sadly, this issue continues to be so real and concerning across Canada. In fact, recently the United Nations special rapporteur on violence against women said that due to the lack of shelters or second-stage housing facilities, many women who have fled from domestic violence are subsequently forced to return to their homes, exposing themselves to the risk of facing further violence.
I ask the government to listen to the cries of women and children across this country and to the special rapporteur and raise the much-needed funding for these facilities. Women and children—. Anti-Semitism Statements By Members. Speaker, B'nai Brith Canada released its 36th annual audit of anti-Semitic incidents. While was a year of celebration for most Canadians, it was truly a difficult year for our Canadian Jewish community. The audit highlights disturbing instances of anti-Semitic occurrences on campuses, including calls for physical violence by a student leader at McGill, bomb threats at York, and an attempt by the University of Ottawa student union to revoke the status of a campus Jewish group.
I call upon all members of this House to be active and loud in denouncing all acts of racism, particularly anti-Semitism. Anything short of that brings shame upon this place. Attack in Toronto Statements By Members. Speaker, I stand before this House with a heavy heart today. I cannot express the depths of my sadness at the tragic incident that shook my riding of Willowdale two days ago. Those killed and injured are etched in my thoughts, and my heart goes out to all their loved ones.
We will never forget April 23, nor will we forget the response of our city and our country. Allow me, first and foremost, to salute all Male looking to Dieppe massage with a female first responders who courageously came forward, in particular Constable Lam, all the individuals who rushed to assist the victims, and of course the many people who have descended on Willowdale to pay their respects.
Allow me also to commend every member of this House for their leadership. I have no doubt that we will emerge from this more united than ever. Given all the angels I have seen in my riding, I have never been prouder to be a Willowdalian, a Torontonian, or a Canadian.
