Don In Parliament

“Will the Liberals do the right thing and withdraw this ill-advised tax on medicine?”

“Why have the Liberals failed to launch an investigation or pursue compensation like the US has done?”

“This week we celebrate International Nurses Day, Indigenous Nurses Day, and Florence Nightingale’s birthday.”

“Neighbourhood House Week 2018 celebrates the multi-faceted contributions of these outstanding organizations to our communities, and our country.”

“The Liberal government cannot call this a crisis and delay funding for years at the same time. We need federal leadership now to ensure that affordable, secure housing is available for every Canadian.”

“On behalf of the New Democratic Party of Canada, I wholeheartedly encourage all members of this House and Canadians everywhere to show their support this April by wearing a daffodil and giving all they can in the fight against cancer.”

“How does this government expect to help vulnerable people suffering from addiction when it continues to treat them as criminals?”

“I would like to seek unanimous consent to table the 1997 Liberal election campaign platform, which promised Canadians universal pharmacare.”

Over 20 years ago, the Liberals promised Canadians they would deliver universal pharmacare in their 1997 election platform. The Liberals failed Canadians then, why should we believe them now?

“The Liberals’ medical cannabis tax is misconceived, unfair to patients, and damaging to public health. Patients already pay sales tax on their medical cannabis and aren’t eligible for reimbursement under most insurance plans – now this government wants to add an excise tax.”
