    Today in the House we're debating a motion put forward by NDP Agriculture Critic Ruth Ellen Brosseau: That, since the government is signing trade agreements that are undermining supply management and that will have a negative impact on the Canadian dairy industry, the House: (a) recognize the magnitude of the economic losses to Canadian dairy producers from the importation of diafiltered milk, which totalled $220 million in 2015; (b) recognize that each day of government inaction contributes to the disappearance of a steadily increasing number of family farms across the country; (c) recognize that the entire industry is standing together to call for the problem to be resolved immediately; and (d) call upon the government to keep its election promises and honour the commitments made since the start of its mandate by immediately enforcing the compositional standards for cheese for all Canadian processors.

    Please join me next week for a discussion about the proposed Medical Assisted Dying legislation, which was recently introduced in response to the Supreme Court's decision to strike down laws that prohibit physician-assisted dying in Canada.

    In Question Period today I pressed for answers about rail safety budget cuts & withheld information on dangerous level crossings: The Minister of Transport claims rail safety is his top priority. Yet this week, rail inspectors told Committee despite a projected tenfold increase in dangerous cargo, the rail safety budget has been slashed 21%. Yesterday, it was revealed that Transport Canada has withheld information on the 500 most dangerous level crossings -- two of the most dangerous in my Edmonton riding. Cuts, inaction, and secrecy won’t improve rail safety. When will this Minister take REAL action on rail safety?

    NDP convention delegates passed Edmonton-Strathcona's emergency resolution this morning, calling for Edmonton workers to be eligible for expanded EI access, which was recently granted to workers in many other areas in the country. With 10s of thousands of jobs lost in Alberta in the last year, Edmontonians need and deserve to fully access the Employment Insurance program they have been paying towards. The resolution reads : WHEREAS the downturn in the western economy has affected many workers; WHEREAS the federal budget's arbitrary changes to EI eligibility excluded severely impacted regions including Edmonton and area as well as southern Saskatchewan; WHEREAS these workers have paid into EI and deserve the right to access these benefits as they look for work; BE IT RESOLVED THAT the NDP demand immediate access to expanded EI coverage for unemployed workers in Edmonton and southern Saskatchewan; BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the NDP demand the federal government implement better program eligibility for these laid off workers.
