    Easy access to public transit means Canadians spend less time commuting and more time doing the things they love. A well-functioning transit system supports middle class jobs, grows the economy, reduces air pollution, and creates inclusive communities. That is why the governments of Canada, Ontario, Toronto, and York Region are investing in modern, green public transit infrastructure.

    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY
    Mr. Speaker –

    One of the greatest choices a person can make in their life is the choice to serve their fellow citizens. Maybe it’s in government, in the military, or in a police force. In whatever capacity one serves, dedicating your life to making Canada – and indeed, the world – a better place is a calling of the highest order.

    Now imagine, if you will, being told that the very country you would willingly lay down your life to defend doesn’t want you. Doesn’t accept you. Sees you as defective. Sees you as a threat to our national security.
