    I met with NOIA in St. John's this morning. We talked about the importance of our off-shore natural resources and the good jobs the sector creates for Canadians.

    Thank you to DF Barnes for the tour of your fantastic facilities today! On this shop floor alone, DF Barnes has gone from 120 employees to 30 in recent months. This company could benefit from the National Shipbuilding Strategy Regional Benefits Program. The Liberal government should involve Canadian companies like this in this program to keep local people employed. These communities need a jobs plan.

    Flying to St. John's this morning! Looking forward to seeing our beautiful east coast again after a few weeks away and can't wait to reconnect with everyone here. The Conservative Party has LOTS of work to do out here and we are getting on with it! --- Je m'envole pour St. John's ce matin! J'ai bien hâte de retrouver notre magnifique littoral Atlantique après quelques semaines et de revoir tout le monde. Le Parti conservateur a BEAUCOUP de travail à faire ici et nous nous attelons à la tâche!

    I know nobody wants to be the one left out. But seriously, everyone got invited to Washington except the Energy Minister. Even I got invited! I guess him being there would have been a tad uncomfortable.

    It was truly an honour to meet Bill Browder, Vladimir Kara-Mirza, Zhanna Nemtsova, and Marcus Kolga with my colleagues James Bezan and Tony Clement. Zhanna Nemtsova is the daughter of assassinated politician Boris Nemtsov, who opposed Vladimir Putin. Conservatives share her determination to defend human rights.

    Canadians are looking for a jobs plan but all the Liberals are offering is a plan to spend borrowed money. Canadian families have to live within their means, so why can’t Justin Trudeau do the same?

    Yesterday, Liberals stood alone and voted to abandon Canada’s CF-18 mission against ISIS. How can Justin Trudeau claim Canada is an essential partner in the fight against terrorism while he pulls us out of the fight? Our CF-18s were protecting those who need our help the most.

    A must read from my colleague Pierre Poilievre. Considering the Liberals’ out of control spending, that this would be one of first programs cut is disgraceful. I hope those making this decision will reconsider. Cenotaphs are symbols of the thousands who gave their lives so that we can live free.

    It’s International Women’s Day and the Conservative Party of Canada - Parti conservateur du Canada has a proud history of female political leaders. I was born in Canada but I grew up in third world countries and saw first-hand what it means to be a girl or a woman with no rights. I am proud to be one of the few women in Canadian history that has led a national political party and held nine federal cabinet portfolios. Through these positions I have been able to fight for the rights of women and girls. Women can have a powerful influence on our world and it’s important we empower more women to run for public office. Take a look at some of the strong conservative women who made political history in honour of International Women’s Day. These women paved the way for our future leaders and I’m so proud of what they accomplished.

    I call myself a feminist. I was born in Canada but I grew up in third world countries and saw first hand what it means to be a girl or a woman with no rights. I am proud to be one of the few women in Canadian history that has led a national political party and held nine federal cabinet portfolios. I have never taken the power and influence I have for granted. I have used it to fight for meaningful support, change and awareness to end violence against women and girls. I am proud to have led a successful UN resolution to create the International Day of the Girl to raise awareness of the rights of girls globally. I am proud to have championed equal matrimonial rights for aboriginal women and successfully created a 100 Million, 10 year program to end family violence. Being a feminist to me means never taking my rights and opportunities for granted! Oxfam Canada #ImAFeminist #IWD2016 Je me considère féministe. Je suis née au Canada, mais j’ai grandi dans des pays du tiers monde et j’ai vu de mes propres yeux ce que cela signifie d’être une fille ou une femme dont les droits sont bafoués. Je suis fière d’être l’une des rares femmes dans l’histoire du Canada à avoir dirigé un parti politique national ainsi que neuf portefeuilles ministériels au niveau fédéral. Je n’ai jamais pris le pouvoir et l’influence que j’ai pour acquis. Je les ai utilisés pour m’employer à obtenir du soutien, du changement et des activités de sensibilisation d’envergure pour mettre un terme à la violence contre les femmes et les filles. Je suis fière d’avoir piloté la résolution adoptée par l’ONU désignant la Journée internationale de la fille en vue d’améliorer la sensibilisation à l’égard des droits des filles partout dans le monde. Je suis également fière d’avoir parrainé l’égalité des droits matrimoniaux pour les femmes autochtones et j’ai réussi à créer un programme de 100 millions de dollars sur 10 ans pour mettre fin à la violence familiale. Pour moi, être féministe veut dire ne jamais prendre mes droits et mes possibilités pour acquis ! Oxfam Canada #JeSuisFministe #JIF2016

    Today is International Women’s Day 2016. Conservatives have a proud tradition of supporting women in politics, and I want to pay tribute to just a few of our pioneers here. From left to right in the photo: - Elsie Wayne was the interim conservative leader in 1998 (and before that, in 1983, was the first female mayor of Saint John, New Brunswick!). - Marjory LeBreton was the Conservative Party's first female Leader of the Government in the Senate in 2006. - Kim Campbell, in 1993, was Canada's first female Prime Minister and first woman conservative leader. - Deb Grey was the first woman to lead the Official Opposition in Canadian history. - Ellen Fairclough was Canada's first female cabinet minister in 1958 (and acting Prime Minister for two days). - Flora MacDonald, in 1979, was Canada's first female foreign minister. With hard work, we can empower many more women and girls to follow in their footsteps! C’est la Journée internationale de la femme de 2016 ! Les Conservateurs ont une fière tradition de soutenir les femmes en politique, et je veux rendre hommage ci-dessous à certaines de nos pionnières. De gauche à droite dans la photo : - En 1998, Elsie Wayne a été nommée chef conservatrice intérimaire (et en 1983, elle est devenue la 1re femme maire de Saint John, au Nouveau-Brunswick !) - En 2006, Marjory LeBreton a été la 1re femme du Parti conservateur à devenir leader du gouvernement au Sénat. - En 1993, Kim Campbell a été la 1re femme à occuper le poste de PM du Canada et la 1re femme à devenir chef des conservateurs ! - Deb Grey a été la 1re femme à avoir dirigé l’opposition officielle dans l’histoire du Canada. - En 1958, Ellen Fairclough a été la 1re femme du Canada nommée au Cabinet (et PM intérimaire pendant 2 jours). - En 1979, Flora MacDonald a été la 1re femme du Canada à être nommée ministre des Affaires étrangères. En travaillant fort, nous pouvons permettre à beaucoup de femmes et de filles de suivre leur exemple !

    I just met with members of the Admadiyya Muslim Jama'at. I heard stories of the Ahmadis being persecuted in the middle east because of their faith and beliefs. Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are concerned about the status of the Office of Religious Freedom, and are wondering why the Liberals won’t commit to keeping it open. Conservatives believe in defending religious minorities from persecution.

    Liberal MPs just voted to abolish union transparency laws that our government had brought in. By abolishing transparency, Canadians will no longer be able to vote by secret ballot if they want to join a union and union members will have no way of knowing how their bosses are spending their union dues. Conservatives will keep fighting for transparency and union members against big union bosses and Liberal secrecy.

    Tomorrow MPs will vote on whether or not to do away with union transparency laws we passed while in Government. Conservatives believe union members should have the right to know how their dues are being spent. Liberals believe how big union bosses spend money should be a secret. Remember this story from a few weeks ago? Maybe it’s not a surprise Liberals want this sort of thing to be kept quiet, but that doesn’t make it right.

    Last month I asked Justin Trudeau why his top priority is to get rid of union transparency. Transparency that would allow union members to know how their dues are being spent. Tomorrow MPs will vote. Who do you think will side with the union bosses, and who will side with working Canadians?

We discussed the Liberals’ plan to increase taxes on small businesses and start-ups. Unfortunately, higher taxes will not create jobs or attract investment. It just creates bigger government.
