I want to thank the hon. members for Abbotsford, Cloverdale—Langley City, Skeena—Bulkley Valley, Montcalm and Saanich—Gulf Islands for their very eloquent comments, to which I think we all want to attach ourselves.
Mark Warawa will be missed by all of us. He was a dedicated member of Parliament whose constituents' faith in him returned him to the House an impressive five times. Even more important, he was a good and kind man.
I knew him for many years. We served together on the Standing Committee on Natural Resources. We would often chat when walking back and forth between the House and committee. In all the years I knew him, whether it was privately or in the House or in committee, I never once heard him speak to or about anyone with malice.
He spoke here of course on May 7, his last appearance in the House, and it seems like only moments ago. He spoke with calm and serene confidence and courage. He still had some hope that maybe there would be a solution for him, something that would overcome this problem with cancer, but he also knew what might lie ahead and he faced it with serenity and courage.
He spoke about his work as a member of Parliament, his love for this place and love for his constituents. He spoke, of course, about his wife Diane and his love for her and for his children and grandchildren, to whom we all offer our condolences. Those people meant a lot to him, as I know his constituents did.
Colleagues, if we are all the poorer for his passing, we are the richer for having known him.
I invite all hon. members to stand to observe a moment of silence in honour of our dear colleague Mark Warawa.

May I first attach myself to the comments about our appreciation for all the staff in this place. I do not like to start listing them all, because I might miss some, but a couple come to mind, and that would be the people who do cleaning for us. When some of us come here very early in the morning, we find them finishing their work that they have been doing overnight. There are those who move furniture around. There are many others, so many others. There are the interpreters, and so many others. I have started to list, but I had better stop. There are so many who do such great work for us.
The question is on the motion. Is it the pleasure of the House to adopt the motion?
Some hon. members: Agreed.

Mr. Speaker, in 2015, Canadians placed their trust in us to put an end to 10 years of austerity.
Four years later, our numbers do not lie. Our policies have lifted over 825,000 people out of poverty, including 100,000 seniors and more than 278,000 children. We now have the lowest level of poverty in Canadian history.
We have cut taxes for families and small businesses, one million jobs have been created since we were elected and we have the lowest unemployment figures in 50 years.
For rural regions, we doubled the gas tax fund by investing an extra $2.2 billion for municipal projects across Canada. We also announced over $164 million for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. Small communities in Canada need this infrastructure.
Our government has invested in Canadians and their communities. The results are plain to see, and now is not the time for a return to the harmful policies of the opposition.

Mr. Speaker, as I walked up the Hill last night, I took pause to look at the beauty of Parliament Hill and all that it represents. Serving the people of Fundy Royal in this 42nd Parliament has been a true honour and the most challenging work of my life.
To understand local and national issues and to represent the interests of my constituents is a duty that I have not taken lightly. I am inspired by local community leaders, organizations and individuals, who are all as passionate as I am about the future of our area.
By working together, we have delivered supports for people at all stages in their lives, and we are making real progress. Over 14,000 children in Fundy Royal are better off today thanks to the Canada child benefit. As well, 825,000 Canadians have been lifted out of poverty. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years and we finally have population growth in Atlantic Canada.
I thank the people of Fundy Royal for working with me and inspiring me. This is what working for Fundy Royal truly looks like. Together, I know we will continue to make a difference when I am sent back here as the member of Parliament for Fundy Royal.
