    Earlier this week I had the opportunity to speak with Peter O'Neil at the Vancouver Sun about the Federal New Democrat approach to International Trade. We believe that each potential agreement needs to be assessed on its individual merits, and pass a series of tests. What use to assess these potential agreements are the answers to the following questions: Is the other country democratic and respectful of labour and environmental rights? Is it large or strategically significant enough to justify a trade and investment deal? And does the deal itself pass muster, in terms of whether the specific provisions that benefit Canadian investors and exporters outweigh the potential negatives?

    In September the Conservative government spent nearly $500,000 on a party and pointless CETA photo op. Earlier today I asked the Minister why this money wasn't spent to help Canadians and Canadian businesses benefit from trade opportunities. See the video below:

    Last Saturday I held a press conference exposing an alledged case of employer fraud brought to my office by Lucas Wu. It appears that this employer has employed Lucas without him being legally eligible to work in Canada, and did so knowingly.

    Thank you to Susana, Luis and Bruchell for sharing their stories on their struggles to find affordable housing at our press conference on Saturday. I am glad George Heyman, Niki Sharma and I had the opportunity to highlight the ways in which all three levels of government need to work together to solve this prevalent issue here in Vancouver.

    NDP Leader Tom Mulcair bravely - and wisely - calls the Bibeau attack a 'criminal' act, not a 'terrorist' one, and says we should wait for all the evidence to become known. Justin Trudeau joins with Stephen Harper to call it 'terrorist'. Playing the politics of fear is NOT a "new way of doing politics", Justin.

    Still in lockdown while security forces check the Parliament buildings and grounds. We are all shaken but calm and safe. So sad to hear of the death of our soldier; our deepest prayers and thoughts go to his family. In the hours, days and weeks ahead, I hope we can respond to this tragedy with wisdom, responsibility and all the best traditions of Canada. I believe all Canadians cherish our peaceful traditions, where issues and grievances are solved by discussion, democracy and the rule of law. The violence I witnessed today has no place in our country, or our world. I hope we can work together to stand against it, and build a peaceful world for everyone.

    NDP Caucus still in lockdown. Heard one gunman shot and killed in Hall of Honour in Centre Block outside our Caucus room, another shooter on a rooftop. Not sure if there are more. All of Parliament Hill on lockdown. Great gratitude to our security personnel for their bravery and protection, and our prayers go to all who have been hurt. I, and my colleagues, are shaken but safe.

    Live from Ottawa: at 10 am this morning, we heard gunshots - 6, then 4 - outside our Caucus room in Centre Block. It appears there may be multiple gunmen on Parliament Hill, some shot and perhaps one or more at large. I along with my NDP colleagues are in lockdown while our brave security forces deal with the situation. Thank you all for your messages of concern. We pray the situation is resolved quickly...

    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,”

    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.

    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.
