    I would like to thank my colleague Terence Young for introducing me to Dr. Anthony Miller, an expert on the hazards to human health posed by wireless technology. Terence's Bill C-648 "Warning Labels for Radio Apparatus Act" would require manufacturers to place warnings on cellphone packaging, telling users that radio frequencies emitted from some electronic devices could pose a health threat. I very much support this bill.

    It was a pleasure to meet with folks from Canadians for Safe Technology(C4ST) here in Ottawa. Dr Anthony Miller, Professor Emeritus of the University of Toronto, is a world renown expert on the dangers of wireless technology. It was an honour to have a chance to discuss smart meters and other wireless technology issues with him and others, including Frank Clegg, CEO and President of C4ST. I would like to thank all those who are part of C4ST for their hard work in flagging the dangers of this technology. We need to have a serious discussion on Safety Code 6.

    Bill C-51 contains sweeping powers that affect the freedoms of all Canadians. This bill is bad legislation and I am proud that New Democrats will vote against it. Public safety is always a priority, but giving CSIS broad new powers without oversight is wrong.

    Looking forward to the debates on two key NDP bills which are scheduled for second-reading this week: 1. Lauren Liu’s bill to protect workplace interns—by ending practices that exploit younger workers and depress middle-class wages. 2. The Climate Change Accountability Act—Jack Layton’s historic bill, renewed by Matthew Kellway, setting the emissions-reduction framework Canada needs to guide balanced economic development.

    An interesting article on Pierre Poilievre, the new Employment Minister by Jeremy Nuttall in the Tyee. As the president of the Alberta Federation of Labour, Gil McGowan states, "Putting this guy in charge of the employment department is like putting an arsonist in charge of the fire department." Let's hope that this appointment helps to get Labour involved in the next federal election. Wouldn't it be something to see Conservative MPs go down because of thier anti-labour stances.

    Yesterday, as the world marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, our Leader Tom Mulcair rose in the House of Commons to poignantly reflect on the horrors of the Holocaust: Mr. Speaker, today we stand together to commemorate the Holocaust, humanity's darkest hour. We remember the millions of mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters who were targeted by evil, including my wife's family. We remember these children whose bright eyes were shut too early and we remember the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. That day, humanity did more than put out a horrible fire. We revived the flame of the human spirit. The contrary of love is not hate, it’s indifference. Let’s never wallow in indifference based on the poison of anti-Semitism and intolerance in all its forms. New Democrats stand with those who wish to build a better Canada, one of diversity and peace, and so against hate and indifference, we will work tirelessly so that this can never happen again. And we will build a world where love will prevail.

Among other things, we discussed the West Kootenay Regional Airport and down Castlegar revitalization.

    "Here's a small example of one of the many many things the Harper government could be doing to promote reduction in fossil fuel consumption. Instead they have subsidized the oil and gas industry in every way possible, and are now reaping the results of such a backward, unbalanced strategy. When the price of oil collapses, and you've bet the farm on oil, the entire country suffers," says Dick Canning, NDP candidate South Okanagan West Kootenay.
