May 28, 2012 — Mr. Casey (Charlottetown) — That the House recognize the tremendous sacrifice that our veterans have made on behalf of Canada, and call on the government to do the honourable thing and not appeal the May 1, 2012 Federal Court of Canada decision that found that the government was in breach of the Service Income Security Insurance Plan (SISIP) policy by clawing back disability benefits from Canada’s disabled veterans.

May 28, 2012 — Mr. Rae (Toronto Centre) — That, in the opinion of the House, the Indian Act is the embodiment of failed colonial and paternalistic policies which have denied First Nations their rights, fair share in resources; fostered mistrust and created systemic barriers to the self-determination and success of First Nations; that the House call on the government to eliminate these barriers by initiating a formal process of direct engagement with First Nations, on a nation-to-nation basis, which focuses on replacing the Indian Act with new agreements based on: (a) the Constitutional, Treaty, and inherent rights of all First Nations; (b) the historical and fiduciary responsibilities of the Crown to First Nations; (c) the standards established in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, including the principle of free, prior, and informed consent; (d) respect, recognition, reconciliation and support for First Nations; (e) partnership and mutual accountability between the Crown and First Nations; and (f) stability and safety of First Nations; that this process begin within three months and be completed within two years; and that the process conclude with a final report which details a series of concrete deliverables for the government to act upon.

September 21, 2012 — Mr. Rae (Toronto Centre) — That the House call on the government to immediately end the punitive new claw back of Employment Insurance benefits, which begins with the very first dollar earned, disadvantages EI claimants with low-earnings, discourages many Canadians on EI from working, and does serious harm to Canadian families and the economy.

September 27, 2012 — Mr. Nantel (Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher) — That, in the opinion of the House, the government should: (a) recognize the important role played by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation/Société Radio-Canada in developing unique Canadian content in both official languages, sustaining the arts and culture industry in Canada, and bringing together Canadians from east to west while also supporting regional identities with content that is both local and national; (b) reverse the cuts to CBC’s budget; and (c) provide CBC with adequate and stable funding.

April 11, 2013 — Ms. Bennett (St. Paul's) — That, in the opinion of the House, a prime cause of the economic and social disadvantages faced by First Nations in Canada is the inadequacy of the educational opportunities available to First Nations children, which is fueled by the large and unacceptable per-student funding gap that exists between federally-funded First Nations schools on-Reserve and provincially-funded schools off-Reserve; and that the House call upon the government to fund the K-12 education of First Nations children attending on-Reserve at a level which matches provincial government investments per-child off-Reserve.
