    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!

    Canada is a signatory to the Convention on the Trade of Endangered Species. So why are the Conservatives doing nothing to stop the trade of endangered fin whale meat through Canada and the Port of Vancouver? Prominent legal opinions interpreting our international obligations as well as Port Metro Vancouver state that the Federal government must shut down this trade. The Conservative government isn't acting. In a world where an increasing number of species are under threat of extinction, Canada must do everything in it's power to protect species and ecosystems that help sustain all life. Here is an article on my questions yesterday to the Minister of Trade, Ed Fast, on this topic.

    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.
