    Friends and Neighbours, Our children are a treasure. But finding a safe, high quality and affordable place to learn and grow is increasingly difficult for parents of young children in Vancouver and across Canada. Countless parents pay more than $1200 per child each month for childcare – if they can find a space at all. The NDP’s national affordable childcare program will dramatically lower the cost of childcare for families and support improved standards of care for all children. Join me, other parents and friends on Saturday, October 18th for a Day of Action on quality and affordable childcare. Together, we’ll be knocking on doors across Vancouver Kingsway and speaking to neighbours about the need for quality, affordable childcare for all families.

    Yesterday Conservatives confirmed that much-needed Ebola vaccine is sitting undelivered in a warehouse in Winnipeg. Perhaps Mr. Harper could offer the use of his plane to deliver the vaccine to West Africa - a better use than blowing $300,000 to fly EU officials back to Europe....

    Conservatives vote No to NDP Motion to make Question Period answers relevant. The Conservatives evidently don’t believe that Canadians deserve truthful, clear answers and have voted to kill an NDP motion to improve Question Period. “By opposing our motion, the Conservatives have said to Canadians that the government doesn’t have to answer their questions regardless of how legitimate they are. This is quite disappointing,” said NDP House Leader, Peter Julian (Burnaby – New Westminster). Following the Speaker’s recent appeal for assistance in improving the tone of Question Period, the NDP introduced a practical proposal to require ministers to provide concrete answers and ensure that future governments will be held accountable to Canadians. “When evasion and personal attacks are the response to legitimate questions on issues like deploying Canadian soldiers on a military mission to Iraq, it’s clear that something is broken in Ottawa. It is clear that the Conservatives don’t care."

    NDP TO FORCE VOTE ON QUESTION PERIOD RELEVANCE OTTAWA – The NDP is using its opposition day to put forward a proposal to enhance the daily Question Period, make Parliament more democratic and ensure that future governments will not be able to abuse the rules to evade giving Canadians answers. “Members of Parliament have a responsibility to make this place work. If the Speaker doesn’t feel he has the power to compel Ministers to stay relevant, Members of Parliament must respond to his call and give him the necessary power. Canadians deserve real answers,” said NDP House Leader, Peter Julian (Burnaby – New Westminster). “New Democrats believe government ministers should tell the truth and provide clear answers to questions on important issues like sending our soldiers into a military mission on foreign soil. Our motion is simple, binding and would improve our democracy,”

    "This is a last-minute attempt by the Harper government to use these officials as props in their continued staging for Canadians' use. And that's what makes this, I think, an inappropriate use of taxpayers' dollars."

    Yesterday in the House of Commons, I announced the NDP's support for the Canada - Korea trade deal. After a thoughtful and comprehensive analysis, it is clear this deal will be of substantial benefit to Canada. It will provide Canadian producers and exporters with valuable new opportunities and a level-playing field to export Canadian products into an important G20 economy. We support deepening economic ties with one of Asia's most dynamic economies and vibrant democracies. It is important to promote Canadian job growth in crucial sectors such as agri-foods, aerospace, agriculture, green technology, energy and chemicals, forestry and wood products, and many others.

    This morning my federal NDP colleagues and I announced that we will be making a national transit strategy a priority in 2015. Canada is the only country in the G8 that does not have a national transit strategy.

    Photos from the petition blitz and press conference Monday, September 8. As we build towards the 2015 election, we are making our commitment to federal support for transportation infrastructure clear. Instead of being forced to fight with the current complicated system, municipalities need to know how much money they will be getting annually to fund transit in a predictable, direct and transparent manner.

    Friends, please join my BC caucus colleagues and I, as well as volunteers from across the Lower Mainland, on September 8th for a morning petition drive at one of Vancouver's busiest transit hubs- Broadway and Cambie. We'll be asking commuters to sign our petition calling for a National Transit Strategy. We need your help to show morning commuters that they can count on the NDP to fight for their concerns! See you there!

    As Deputy Critic for Citizenship, Immigration & Multiculturalism, I spoke with Global News yesterday about adoptions from the DRC that are being held up by the Canadian government. Helping Canadians unite with their children should be a priority of Canada's immigration system.
