Pursuant to Standing Order 109, the Committee requested that the government table a comprehensive response.

A copy of the relevant Minutes of Proceedings (Meetings Nos. 34 to 41 and 44) was tabled.

Government Orders

The House resumed consideration of the motion of Ms. McKenna (Minister of Environment and Climate Change), seconded by Ms. Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons), — That Bill C-18, An Act to amend the Rouge National Urban Park Act, the Parks Canada Agency Act and the Canada National Parks Act, be now read a third time and do pass.

The debate continued.

The question was put on the motion and, pursuant to Standing Order 45, the recorded division was deferred until Wednesday, February 22, 2017, at the expiry of the time provided for Oral Questions.


The Order was read for the second reading and reference to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security of Bill C-23, An Act respecting the preclearance of persons and goods in Canada and the United States.

Mr. Goodale (Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness), seconded by Mr. Carr (Minister of Natural Resources), moved, — That the Bill be now read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security.

Debate arose thereon.

Mr. Dubé (Beloeil—Chambly), seconded by Mr. Masse (Windsor West), moved the following amendment, — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That”, and substituting the following:

“the House decline to give second reading to Bill C-23, An Act respecting the preclearance of persons and goods in Canada and the United States, because it: (a) neglects to take into account the climate of uncertainty at the border following the discriminatory policies and executive orders of the Trump Administration; (b) does not address Canadians’ concerns about being interrogated, detained, and turned back at the border based on race, religion, travel history or birthplace as a result of policies that may contravene the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; (c) does nothing to ensure that Canadians’ right to privacy will be protected during searches of their online presence and electronic devices; and (d) violates Canadian sovereignty by increasing the powers of American preclearance officers on Canadian soil with respect to the carrying of firearms and by not properly defining a criminal liability framework.”

.

Debate arose thereon.
