Question Period – June 20, 2014

Posted on June 25, 2014

Hon. Lawrence MacAulay (Cardigan, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister claims that record out-migration from Prince Edward Island is not caused by his EI changes when nothing could be further from the truth.

We know that, because of the Conservative government, thousands of people are being forced to leave Prince Edward Island and go west. EI changes have devastated our seasonal industries and Conservative cuts have taken tens of millions of dollars out of the Island’s economy.

Will the Conservative government admit to the devastation it has caused to Prince Edward Island and reverse these changes?

Question Period – June 12, 2014

Posted on June 12, 2014

Hon. Lawrence MacAulay (Cardigan, Lib.): Mr. Speaker, a record number of people are leaving Prince Edward Island due to the Conservative cuts and changes to EI.

The Minister of Fisheries and Oceans claims everyone is leaving for a better life when in fact there is no better place to live in Canada, in the world, than Prince Edward Island.

This record out-migration means there is no one left to work in the island’s fish plants, the price for fish is low and fishermen are not able to get their products to market.

I would like the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans to explain to this House and the people involved in the fisheries, what measures will she take in order to help this industry that needs help?

Honouring the Fallen

Posted on June 10, 2014

Regina RCMP AcademyToday is a day to honour, remember, and reflect on the tremendous sacrifice made by three fallen members of Canada’s RCMP.

Since the senseless incident last week in Moncton, I have been at a loss for words and overcome with emotion. No words can express the grief and sympathy for the lost members and the pride I have felt in seeing how their fellow officers and Canadians from coast to coast have come together to offer prayers, support, and strength.

For four years as Canada’s Solicitor General I had the honour to be the Minister responsible for our RCMP. I grew to know so many of this country’s great officers who dedicate their lives to our country and am forever grateful for that experience.

Today I am thinking of Constables Dave Joseph Ross, Douglas James Larche, and Fabrice Georges Gevaudan, their families and friends, and all of their colleagues in the RCMP who are mourning their lost brothers.

They will never be forgotten.
