    Today in the House I raised the concerns of the patients and workers of Mount Saint Joseph Hospital. They were recently refused $24 million in desperately needed funding. I call on the Federal government and the BC Provincial government to work together to improve Canada’s health care system and ensure residents of East Vancouver receive the best possible service.

    Harper's Conservatives are shutting down debate on Bill C-51 after TWO HOURS of debate!! This is unconscionable, undemocratic and autocratic behaviour, especially as it concerns legislation that deals with such serious issues. Clearly, the Cons are afraid of real discussion of this bill and are disrespecting Parliament and Canadians in the process.

    Today in Question Period, I urged the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to support my Motion M-585, calling on the Government to begin negotiations with the Chinese Government to negotiate a 10 year multiple-entry visa for Canadians travelling to China. Watch my question here!

    Hmmmmm.....Libs join Cons to vote AGAINST NDP motion to "build a balanced economy, support the middle class and encourage manufacturing and small business job creation by extending the accelerated capital cost allowance by two years, reducing the small business tax rate from 11% to 10% immediately, and then to 9% when finances permit, and introduce an Innovation Tax Credit to support investment in machinery, equipment and property to further innovation and increase productivity."

    Last Friday I was invited to take a tour of Mount Saint Joseph Hospital's Emergency Room. The physicians and staff who work there want people to know about the conditions staff and patients are facing. This hospital provides the only emergency department services conveniently accessible to residents of east Vancouver, and due to lack of resources, is only open from 8am to 8pm. This puts east Vancouver residents at unnecessary risk as they are forced to travel either to the adjoining city of Burnaby or to central/west Vancouver to receive emergency care. Click here (http://dondavies.ca/don-tours-mount-st-joseph-hospital-outlines-the-need-for-more-funding/) to read excerpts from my letter to the Federal Health Minister outlining the reasons that the emergency department at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital is in need of funding from both the Federal and Provincial Governments. Please click below to see photos from the tour, that highlight how little privacy and space there is in this emergency facility.

    Volunteer James at our table at the Nanny Fair today at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House! We are collecting petition signatures calling for necessary reforms to the live-in caregiver program. We feel that having to wait 2 years to apply for Permanent Residence and then another 4 years for processing time is simply too long for live-in caregivers to be separated from their families.

    After watching David Emerson cross the floor from the Liberals to the Conservatives in Vancouver Kingsway, I became convinced of the essential betrayal of the democratic expression of voters that floor-crossing embodies. Seeing Conservative Eve Adams be embraced by Justin Trudeau and the Liberals in direct violation of the trust of her voters once again illustrates the political immorality of this practice. Once again - if Ms Adams and Mr Trudeau truly believe that this move is justified, then they should have no problem having her resign and put their decision to the test of the voters of her Riding - where the decision should truly rest. Only the NDP refuses to accept floor-crossers into our Caucus without a mandate from the voters who sent them to Parliament. The Conservatives, Liberals - and even the Greens - all continue to violate voters' democratic decisions by continuing this shameful practice of floor-crossing. If we truly believe in democracy - that is, voters determining the political character of their representatives - then we must not permit such crass, opportunistic violations of this most basic democratic principle.

    The Government has broken their promise to Newfoundland and Labrador and is now refusing to compensate the province for eliminating the minimum processing requirements in CETA. What will this mean for Conservative Government promises to other provinces? Check out my speech in the House on the NDP Opposition Day Motion calling on the Conservatives to remedy this issue!

    Today, I presented petitions in the House that coincide with my Motion (M-558) calling on the Canadian Government to negotiate a 10 year multiple entry visa for Canadians travelling to China. This visa would help the business community, assist family members in visiting each other, promote cultural exchanges, reduce costs, increase flexibility and create maximum opportunities for Canadians who are living in an increasingly global world.

    Today the NDP challenged the Conservatives on why Canada Post can't afford to deliver the mail to the homes of seniors but can afford to give out hundreds of expensive professional hockey tickets to cronies and insiders. Via Rail has been doing the same. Conservative hypocrisy, waste and pork-barrelling...

    A moving moment in the House of Commons today when we held a minute of silence to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day. We must commit to a world of acceptance, diversity, respect, justice and peace....
