Private Members' Business

At 11:00 a.m., pursuant to Standing Order 30(6), the House proceeded to the consideration of Private Members' Business.

The House resumed consideration of the motion of Ms. Foote (Random—Burin—St. George's), seconded by Mr. Casey (Charlottetown), — That, in the opinion of the House, the Last Post Fund is currently underfunded and excludes deserving veterans causing unnecessary stress and hardship to families of veterans, and that the House call on the government to do the following: (a) accept the recommendations of successive Veteran Ombudsmens’ calling for expanded and enhanced financial access to the Last Post Fund; (b) accept the advice from the Royal Canadian Legion made in the years 2008, 2010, and 2012 calling for expanded access and financial support for the Last Post Fund; (c) accept three year old advice from departmental officials to expand and enhance financial access to the Last Post Fund; (d) review the Last Post Fund’s current burial assistance cap of $3,600 with the goal to establish a standard consistent with burial assistance provided to current members of the Canadian Forces; (e) review the “means tested” standard applied to the Last Post Fund that currently excludes many veterans with the goal to improve and lower the qualification standard to access the Fund; and (f) provide stable long term funding to the Last Post Fund with consideration given to establish a financial escalator tied to the Consumer Price Index. (Private Members' Business M-422)

Ms. Crowder (Nanaimo—Cowichan), seconded by Mrs. Hughes (Algoma—Manitoulin—Kapuskasing), moved the following amendment, — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:

(a) is primarily a Bill about the division of property on reserve but the Standing Committee on the Status of Women did not focus on this primary purpose during its deliberations;
(b) fails to implement the ministerial representative recommendation for a collaborative approach to development and implementing legislation;
(c) does not recognize First Nations jurisdiction or provide the resources necessary to implement this law;
(d) fails to provide alternative dispute resolution mechanisms at the community level;
(e) does not provide access to justice, especially in remote communities;
(f) does not deal with the need for non-legislative measures to reduce violence against Aboriginal women;
(g) makes provincial court judges responsible for adjudicating land codes for which they have had no training or experience in dealing with; and
(h) does not address underlying issues, such as access to housing and economic security that underlie the problems on-reserve in dividing matrimonial property.”.
