The House resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Morneau (Minister of Finance), seconded by Ms. Bibeau (Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food), — That Bill C-97, An Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on March 19, 2019 and other measures, be now read a third time and do pass;
And of the amendment of Mr. Dubé (Beloeil—Chambly), seconded by Mr. Aubin (Trois-Rivières), — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:
“the House decline to give third reading to C-97, An Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on March 19, 2019 and other measures, because it:
(a) gives more to big business than to Canadians;
(b) does not establish a universal pharmacare plan;
(c) does not solve the current housing crisis;
(d) maintains subsidies to oil companies;
(e) makes major changes to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act that are unfair and fail to meet the standards of the process established by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada;
(f) is an omnibus bill that is contrary to this government’s promises; and
(g) limits Members’ ability to vote separately on the various divisions of the Bill.”.
The debate continued.
