authorities during the course of the weekend to make sure that if any access to federal assistance were to be required that that would be made available immediately and we have cooperated completely with the local officials including today in providing geomatic mapping service to both the provinces of Ontario and to ensure that they have the very best possible information and coping with the circumstances an organized crime that says that the majority of immigrants who arrived illegally last year have left eye territory this assertion is totally false according to Canada Border Services only 398 f30 2173 immigrants who came in illegally have been expelled the speaker how can we trust this Minister when he doesn’t know the true fact of old file security my intention was to explain how people be removed immediately apologize speakers and transparency information related to new concrete plan Canadiens score to MPS no plan to resolve the Border crisis which lasted almost 2 years it seems that the minister doesn’t even have the right thing when he answers or when opposition and pieces can questions now we’re asking the minister to show leadership and present a plan because if he doesn’t have one we do mr. speaker the government rebates unshakable in its commitment to protect Canadian Security and to keep our borders safe the minister apologized any possible confusion he created that’s the conservatives they like to create fear and we have seen it over the past year and increase in 50% and tensor to stay here but the overwhelming majority of illegal border crossers had left the country yet today the Globe and Mail reports it only six illegal border crossers and actually been remotely by his government so very precise question if the government has moved six illegal border crossers how many illegal border crossers remain in Canada because of her past experience on the immigration file and seek the protection of Canada according to law they are entitled International Convention and Canadian law to due process and humanitarian support very clearly how many illegal border crossings are made in Canada and he couldn’t answer I’m going to ask what every

due process when all of those processes have been exhausted and they are deemed ineligible they are subject to removal by cvsa are still engaged in that process and windows processes are complete the law will take effect to have a discussion to have to be to size testimony of members of indigenous communities with respect to the TMX shows with the discussion discussion discussing means sitting down and Sharon this is the government understand that it has a constitutional obligation to hold consultations meaningful consultation with indigenous peoples speaker government understand that there’s no relationship more important to our government relationship before the decision of continue to do so we believe that we will engage with them in a meaningful two-way dialogue and listen to their concerns very very carefully in order to move forward on this project take me to from words to action this weekend in minister of Fisheries the problem is it without the intervention of the federal court the government would never have respected the world nor the voices of indigenous communities this is the force the expansion of Transmountain I’d like to clear answer any price sending all the resource Market be on the US market I guess because that is the course we will follow as we move forward to making sure that we moving forward on Transmountain pipeline expansion in the right way natural resources that the Liberals quote should have engaged in meaningful dialogue with indigenous peoples and he’s right he should have and they didn’t the indigenous communities confirmed that there was not a meaningful to a discussion and agree now this weekend we here there is no guarantee all concerns raised by digitus people will be addressed and how is that meaningful consultation why are the liberal satisfied with the bare minimum when it comes to their most import lationship faith in engagement with the indigenous peoples and we will talk to you we have a hysterectomy I need you to take steps to initiate the inclusion in the interview that they will enter take over the next 22 weeks and we will be in Austin Tabernacle steps shortly it was only note-takers not decision-makers and when it comes to actual having consultation it is imperative that finally we see it to a discussion which it meaningful consultation if you’re going to have me for constipation it’s not only misleading it’s absolutely insulting consultation how can the liberal states that reach the use of you in that in that question perhaps mean one or it could mean you were the terms of people across the way so I asked number to be cautious and number to Direct your comments to the floor strip natural resources this government and religious people and that’s exactly what we have been strong

mr. speaker for recreation both Brandon and his wife Marty I work at the small business house do both of Martinez parents like most businesses in this sector they buy their inventory in the winter for sale in the summer they have to pay the GST upfront and now they have to pay the Canadian tariffs up front This Means War by fewer boats and they’ll lose money this year why is the government failing

measures against United States we are certainly listening to businesses to make sure that we get it right and then we deal with any problems in the implementation of those terrorists that processes not going how do I process one in which we are taking very seriously in order to make sure the business is not disadvantaged the honourable member for Durham posing on them they’re collecting 300

$11,000 at a bit more that’s not very much and that money expected to go to large corporations and not too small to medium-sized businesses that need help why is the government once again but favoring large corporations over at Sammy’s we understand Citi hardship caused by these measures for Canadian workers that is why as we mentioned we have made available some two billion dollars or teams are working very hard to to direct those funds to those who need them the measures include as I said an extension of the word sharing programs and increased in funding for training and funds to improve competitiveness for manufacturers and mr. speaker we are on the mark with these measures for the liberal government is large players the big companies not the SMS the government is protecting the big players and setting aside the little ones we saw that with the attacks they were formed by the Minister of Finance we saw it in the Summer with the liberal carbon text large corporations have so why is the liberal government continuing to protect the big players and setting aside too small and medium-sized businesses in this country that is why I prefer that to billion-dollar support package
