    Nathan CullenHad an amazing trip to Haida Gwaii. Thanks to all who came out to our public meetings or stopped us in coffee shops. Howa'a to the Haida for guidance and to the Syrian refugee group for showing us the best of us.

    Alexandre BoulericeA political party should never be the party of one person. It should be about ideas and team work. The media want to tell the story that we are in trouble. They are wrong! What I see every day is people that are more motivated than ever to build a more equal, more prosper and green society. The NDP is stronger then ever.

    Irene MathyssenI was in my first term as an MP and our Mayor was Anne Marie DeCicco when this expansion of CBC local programming was first proposed. In a case of "better late than never", I'm thrilled with today's news that more LOCAL is coming to our local CBC Radio station: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/cbc-london-ontario-1.3552088

    Glenn ThibeaultOne of the most rewarding parts of my job at Sudbury's MPP is seeing the effects of local investment on the lives of people in our community. In the 2016 Budget, our Government reaffirmed our commitment to Building Ontario Up by bolstering investment in much-needed infrastructure throughout the Province. In Sudbury, these investments have allowed us to break ground on projects like the Maley Drive extension and 4-laning Highway 69, both of which will improve safety and convenience for drivers in Sudbury. Beyond our roads, our Government is investing in education and healthcare,with plans for building new schools and educational programs, as well as the exciting commitment to providing operational funding for a PET scanner at Health Sciences North. In order to create jobs and build the economy, our Government is also investing in research and innovation, particularly related to mining, as well as small business, and the growing and successful film industry in Sudbury. I am proud of the work our Government is doing to Build Ontario Up, and will continue to do all I can in the community and at Queen's Park to keep building in Sudbury.

    Irene MathyssenThe Royal Canadian Legion is creating a special section to provide support to veterans struggling with Operational Stress Injury. This is a significant step in terms of both the Legion's own organizational structure, but also in supporting our veterans. As a member of my local Royal Canadian Legion branch, I am proud of this new initiative and as the NDP Critic for Veterans Affairs I am pleased to support this effort and help spread the word: http://www.legion.ca/article/operational-stress-injury-special-section/

    Nathan CullenI'm stunned. Trudeau once said "the Northern Gateway Pipeline will not happen" and twice voted for our north coast tanker ban. I'm on Haida Gwaii and the people here, who believed those words are hurt and angry by what the Liberals are doing. This is the opposite of reconciliation. The opposite of leadership and the opposite of what Canadians voted for on October 19th.

    Alexandre BoulericeMy colleague Charlie Angus is doing an extraordinary job in the Attawapiskat file. I share his anger. Seeing the lack of consideration for the living conditions of First Nations is simply appalling. It’s constantly Groundhog Day. It is time that Justin Trudeau stop the talk and starts walking the walk.

    Paul DewarArms Control - time for a mature conversation Should we sell Arms to Saudi Arabia? What is Canada’s position on the Iranian Nuclear agreement? Recently these questions have dominated the foreign policy debate in Canada and the United Kingdom. While these are important questions the debate itself reveals something is profoundly lacking. Plaining put what is our foreign policy on arms control both conventional and unconventional? As a country that prided itself on the Ottawa Treaty to Ban Land Mines and leaders in Nuclear Non Proliferation recently we have been missing in action. After a decade of despair in diplomacy particularly in arms control it’s time to put on our skates and get back on the ice. O There is incredible opportunity for Canada to make a real difference and now is the time So where to begin? Conventional Weapons Whether it’s the Middle East or North Africa many regions have become awash with small and medium sized weapons which has enabled extremists groups like ISIL, Boco Haram instability and support. Remember what happened in Libya after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011? The weapons stockpiled by Gaddafi were quickly spirited over the border via the black market and were used in Mali and Iraq. The most obvious way to impact the threat of illegal arms sales is to sign and ratify the UN Arms Trade Treaty. While we may be late to the party we can still be a champion to this important treaty which would help repair the damage of the previous government bizarre reluctance to sign the treaty. The new Liberal government has committed to sign the Arms Trade Treaty which is a good start but we will need to ratify the treaty as soon as possible to make up for lost time. In fact 130 Countries have signed the agreement and 80 Countries have ratified, this May states who have signed and ratified the agreement will be filing their annual reports, but not Canada, so we need to catch up. The importance of this UN treaty cannot be overstated it requires countries to adopt reports of exports and end use, national control lists and other regulations and measures. The treaty lays out various reporting and accountability measures involving government and industry, there is also a role for civil society and our Parliament. In the case of our Parliament Canada should adopt the UK Parliament’s structure of their House of Commons Committee for Arms Exports and Controls. The UK committee consists of members from the standing committees of Defence, Foreign Affairs, International Development and Business and Skills Development we could assemble a similar committee in our Parliament. This committee could monitor our compliance with the Arms Trade Treaty and provide a forum for industry and civil society to be heard. As we have seen with the Saudi deal once an export is approved it becomes difficult to monitor use and hold end users to account. Along with signing and implementing the ATT we should become vigorous champions of the treaty and promote its implementation by other countries similar to Canada’s support of the Ottawa Land Mines Treaty. Nuclear Weapons Along with conventional arms control Canada must contribute to nuclear non-proliferation. Recently The Doomsday Clock, the symbolic countdown to humanity’s end due to the threat of nuclear weapons, was calculated at three minutes to midnight, this should be a wakeup call. Historically Canada has a proud tradition of limiting the proliferation, testing and use of nuclear weapons. However in recent years we have impeded progress on nuclear weapon controls. At a time when we see new states seeking to proliferate and old ones looking to refurbish there nuclear stockpiles Canada is on the sidelines. For example the previous government refused to support the P5 plus one negotiation with Iran and most recently we refused to sign the 2014 Vienna Protocol on Nuclear Weapons. Despite Canada’s anemic response there has been some positive moves on the nuclear non-proliferation front; in 2009 UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s challenged the world to get behind his five point plan proposal to curb and eventually eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons in this was followed by a unanimous motion in both the Canadian Senate and House of Commons in 2010 calling our government to support t Ban Ki-moon’s initiative. Indeed Canada can play a constructive role; we can support the recently negotiated Iran deal by offering financial and human resources to monitor the agreement. We should sign the Vienna Protocol on Humanitarian Effects of Nuclear Weapons But we can go further we should pursue a global treaty on nuclear weapons. Canada has a unique credibility in taking a leading role in such efforts. At the height of the Cold War, Canada chose not to develop nuclear arms. As a country, we have always known the dangers of nuclear weapons. But we need to engage and inspire a younger generation of people who may not have the intuitive understanding of nuclear weapons that came with life during the Cold War. This September 26th the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons we should host a conference for an eventual Nuclear Weapons treaty. Canada is a significant world power, we have the experience the trust and self-interest to and lean into the major issues that face our globe, instead of ambiguity and chasten responses let’s with clear vision, clear objectives and the will to follow through. We can achieve more on Arms Control to make the world a safer place and have our country take its rightful place on the global stage.

    Nathan CullenTrudeau calls them "jeeps", Harper says "transport vehicles". Now John Manley says that light armoured tanks with 105 mm cannons are just "fancy trucks". Well, when the Saudis used them to oppress democratic protests and round up and torture people - no one is laughing.

    Murray RankinAn update on the medical aid in dying bill – the House recently began 2nd reading debate on C-14 and will soon refer the bill to the Justice Committee. The bill is far from perfect but I have supported moving it forward so we can improve it in committee. Starting next week in the Justice Committee, we’ll be hearing from witnesses from across the spectrum of views on this issue. We have a lot of work ahead to meet the Supreme Court’s June 6th deadline for a legislative response and to ensure Canadians have the right and the choice to seek help to die with dignity. I will post updates here as the bill progresses through Parliament. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5wJHOs4D8o

    Jeunes néo-démocrates du QuébecLes peuples des Premières Nations ne sont pas que des «autochtones». Ils ont des noms, des histoires. On fait partie de leur histoire: on les a déracinés. Regardons la réalité en face. «Les jeunes, en réserve, ils n’ont pas d’existence. Il n’y a pas de plaisir. Pas de beauté, pas de bonheur.»
