              • MPnews news Stephen Harper heading North next week - CBC.ca
                Dennis Bevington is the NDP MP for Western Arctic. He says there are issues Harper should hear about if he's coming to town. “He should hear about the impacts downstream of the oilsands,” Bevington says. “I think that's absolutely critical for this region. read more

                  • MPconblog Peter MacKay 164 post Victims Bill of Rights Act

                    Mr. Speaker, I know that they are chirping over there.

                    I know that the member is from Western Arctic, and he will be very happy to know that we did a lot of consultation in his part of the country. We heard directly from victims and participants in the justice system.

                    When it comes to committee witnesses, I invite the member to rise in this place and walk over to talk to the committee chair, because it is the chair who decides on the witnesses and the sitting times. That work is done by those committees at arm's length from the Minister of Justice. He would be the first, I am sure, to rise in his place and decry any interference from the Minister of Justice if I in any way tried to influence those witnesses.

                      In that request they point out that Parks Canada elected not to use their referral power — instead it recommended the land and water board maker the referral. Dennis Bevington is Member of Parliament for the Western Arctic. "They should've been a ... read more

                          • MPconblog Jason Kenney 175 post Employment

                            Mr. Speaker, it is the NDP that wants exemptions for all international musicians to come and take jobs from Canadian musicians without any screening.

                            It is the NDP that wants to open the floodgates with no verification for the computer gaming industry in Montreal, because, I guess, they talk to them.

                            It was the NDP critic who lobbied me for a crane operator to come into her riding as a temporary foreign worker.

                            It was the MP for Halifax who asked us to streamline the LMO screening process.

                            It was the MP for Western Arctic who said that our wage levels were too high in the temporary foreign worker program.

                            We will not listen to the NDP on this.

                            • MPlibblog JohnMcCallumMP 117 post Employment

                              Mr. Speaker, the NDP member for Western Arctic wrote to the Minister of Employment and Social Development to complain about the fact that low-skilled temporary foreign workers were being overpaid. That same NDP member said that higher salaries were making the program “unworkable”.

                              Does the Minister of Employment and Social Development agree with the NDP that paying temporary foreign workers market wages is harmful to the program?

                                      • MPndpblog JeanCrowder 187 post First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act

                                        Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the member for Western Arctic for that very eloquent speech. The member has worked for many years on these matters, and I appreciate the perspective that he brings.

                                        The member talked about the fact that the Conservatives have shut down debate on this particular piece of legislation. It seems ironic for a government that says that in developing this legislation it did all kinds of consultation. Yet, what we have now is overwhelming opposition, from coast to coast to coast, to their so-called first nations control of first nations education act.

                                        I wonder if the member could comment on the fact that what we really need is fulsome debate here in the House, so that we do hear from first nations from coast to coast to coast. Then we need adequate time at committee to fully understand the implications of this piece of legislation that could have far-ranging impacts on first nations communities.

                                            Order. The member for Western Arctic knows to address his comments and questions to the Chair and not to the member opposite.
