Presenting Reports from Committees

Mr. Finnigan (Miramichi—Grand Lake), from the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food, presented the fourth report of the committee, "Room to Grow: Strengthening Food Processing Capacity in Canada for Food Security and Exports". — Sessional Paper No. 8510-432-125.

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. 6, 7, 9 to 11, 13 to 15, 17 to 20, 23 to 25 and 27) was tabled.


Presenting Petitions

Pursuant to Standing Order 36, petitions certified by the Clerk of Petitions were presented as follows:

— by Ms. May (Saanich—Gulf Islands), one concerning foreign affairs (No. 432-00908);
— by Mr. Godin (Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier), one concerning social affairs and equality (No. 432-00909).
Business of Supply

The order was read for the consideration of the business of supply.

Ms. Bergen (Portage—Lisgar), seconded by Mr. Bezan (Selkirk—Interlake—Eastman), moved, — That, given that:

(a) women and all members of the Canadian Armed Forces placed their trust in this government to act on claims of sexual misconduct;
(b) the Prime Minister's Chief of Staff was informed about a specific sexual harassment allegation against General Jonathan Vance three years ago;
(c) the Prime Minister asserts that this sexual harassment allegation was never brought to his attention; and
(d) the Prime Minister said that those in a position of authority have a duty to act upon allegations,

the House call upon the Prime Minister to dismiss his Chief of Staff for failing to notify him about a serious sexual harassment allegation at the highest ranks of the Canadian Armed Forces and for being complicit in hiding the truth from Canadians.

Debate arose thereon.

Statements By Members

Pursuant to Standing Order 31, members made statements.

Oral Questions

Pursuant to Standing Order 30(5), the House proceeded to Oral Questions.

Deferred Recorded Divisions

Government Orders

 

Pursuant to order made Monday, January 25, 2021, the House resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Wilkinson (Minister of Environment and Climate Change), seconded by Mr. Guilbeault (Minister of Canadian Heritage), — That Bill C-12, An Act respecting transparency and accountability in Canada's efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, be now read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development.

The House proceeded to the taking of the deferred recorded division on the amendment of Mr. Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent), seconded by Mr. Richards (Banff—Airdrie), — 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-12, An Act respecting transparency and accountability in Canada's efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, since the bill fails to:
(a) implement a plan that recognizes climate change is real and addresses the significant problem it represents, while also ensuring that economic development and job growth can flourish all across Canada; and
(b) address the fact that, after committing to working with Parliament on the makeup of the advisory group, the government appointed climate activists whose influence, if acted upon, would lead to the destruction of the oil and gas sector, disproportionally threaten certain regions of the country and their essential industries, and weaken national unity.".

The question was put on the amendment and it was negatived on the following division:
