41st Parliament, 2nd Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le manque de sécurité ferroviaire au Canada, sous le régime conservateur, soulève beaucoup d'inquiétudes chez les Canadiens et les Canadiennes. Maintenant, c'est le réseau des oléoducs qui soulève ces mêmes inquiétudes. On voit que la mauvaise gestion des conservateurs fait des ravages. Depuis 2006, le nombre de fuites de pétrole dans ces réseaux a triplé.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question ~ When is Minister Oliver going to listen to the experts fighting the threat of climate change?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, one thing about the Minister of Natural Resources, he sure is consistent. He will always say things that are embarrassing to Canadians. After making up bogus science claiming that a two degree rise in global temperatures somehow is not a real problem, he has now attacked a respected former NASA scientist. Now, this is a real rocket scientist, which the minister clearly is not.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Will the Minister of Natural Resources support NDP motion to combat climate change now?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, les journaux du monde entier, du New York Times au Guardian font référence au ministre des Ressources naturelles comme étant le ministre du pétrole. C'est normal car il nie le danger des changements climatiques. Tout ce qui lui importe, c'est de vendre le pétrole à n'importe quel prix. Il est même prêt à vendre le contrôle de nos ressources naturelles au gouvernement chinois.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Will Minister Oliver retract his comments denying climate change?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, it is obvious the minister is mired and he expects Canadians to figure it out on their own, when he could not understand the forms even with an entire department helping him. On top of that, the minister has not retracted his comments denying climate change. He said:

IN THE HOUSE ~ QUESTION PERIOD ~ Calling on Minister Oliver to apologize for denying climate change and its impacts

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Question Period

Context : Question M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le ministre des Ressources naturelles doute encore des conséquences des changements climatiques. Il pense que les gens ne sont pas inquiets de voir la Terre se réchauffer de 2 degrés. Au contraire, les gens sont bien inquiets de voir les glaciers fondre et les ours polaires disparaître, en plus de voir les océans se vider de leurs ressources. En niant l'existence des changements climatiques, les conservateurs nous ont encore embarrassés sur la scène internationale. Le ministre va-t-il enfin reconnaître que les changements climatiques sont réels et prouvés par la science, oui ou non?

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question ~ Why will the Harper government not get serious about preventing spills?

41st Parliament, 1st Session~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, certains disent que les fuites de pétrole sont bonnes pour l'économie, parce que cela crée des emplois de nettoyage. Cela a encore moins de bon sens que l'exercice de relations publiques des conservateurs, qui se résume à installer des caméras pour observer les fuites de pétrole, et ce, après avoir sabré dans les programmes d'urgence. Les conservateurs aiment beaucoup les caméras cachées, on le sait. Est-ce pour une nouvelle émission de téléréalité conservatrice? Quand vont-ils enfin mettre en place des règles de protection environnementales solides?

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Canadians deserve a responsible approach to governing

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): The results, Mr. Speaker, 300,000 more Canadians looking for work. Canadians deserve better than that. The government has been repeatedly warned that failing to protect the environment will have economic costs. Now it is being challenged by our closest ally to take action on climate change. How many jobs will Canadians miss out on while Conservatives get their act together? How many countries will shut their doors to our resources because of the government's irresponsible policies. When will the Conservatives stop stalling, defend the Canadian interest and take real, effective action on climate change?

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, les conservateurs mettent les Canadiens à risque. Le plafond de la responsabilité absolue des exploitants des centrales nucléaires n'a pas été mis à jour depuis 35 ans. Cela veut dire que si un accident se produit, les contribuables canadiens devront se débrouiller tout seuls. La catastrophe de Fukushima a coûté près de 200 milliards de dollars.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, il y a deux ans les conservateurs ont promis à la suite des pressions du NPD de nouvelles règles pour les investissements au Canada. En fin de semaine, les Canadiens ont appris que de nouvelles règles allaient finalement voir le jour,mais seulement après que les conservateurs ont approuvé la vente de Nexen àCNOOC. C'est très irresponsable.

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, theConservatives' lack of clarity on Investment Canada has become an embarrassingmess.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Supplementary Question

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, I am going to try again to clarify the confused, muddled position of the Conservative government on clarity in the Investment Canada Act.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question - will new rules around foreign investment be in place before decision on CNOOC takeover of Nexen?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Supplementary Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, after their gross mishandling of the Petronas decision, the Conservatives are now saying that more clarity is needed in the Investment Canada Act. This is just days afterthey stated emphatically that no more clarity was needed at all. This is whyinvestors and so many others are losing confidence in the government. TheConservatives just seem to be confused and improvising. But now that they haveadmitted that the NDP was right all along and clarity is needed, there areserious concerns about CNOOC and the deadline is looming.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period on CNOOC Ltd.'s takeover bid of Nexen Inc.

41st Parliament, 1st Session

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, we know what is happening behind closed doors because the lobbyist registry shows extensive meetings between CNOOC lobbyists and the government. Canada's twelfth largest oil company is at stake and meeting with lobbyists is not consulting with Canadians. On this side, we believe Canadians must be consulted about thisdeal, about the impact on jobs and the economy and on our communities.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, Conservatives promised to create jobs and, instead, slashed the vital services that Canadian families rely on, services such as old age security and health care. They promised jobs and growth, but, instead, what they delivered in reckless cuts. In the Conservative budget there is nothing on jobs, aside from the title, and nothing on growing inequality.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Supplementary Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, on foreign investment, in so many other ways we just cannot trust the government. For instance, 3,000 families lost a breadwinner last month, 15% of young Canadians are now unemployed, nearly 40,000 Canadians gave up looking for work last month, and it has been 10 days since the Minister of Finance stood up to answer a question in the House of Commons.

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, un budget, c'est une question de choix. Pour nous, au NPD, c'est clair: nous devons choisir d'aider les familles. Les conservateurs veulent plutôt tromper les familles en cachant leurs intentions.

Ils publient les estimations des dépenses, mais refusent de nous montrer quelles sont les compressions majeures qu'ils planifient. On sait que ça s'en vient et on sait que les familles canadiennes sont inquiètes. Le ministre dit qu'il va couper. Il se fiche des familles. De notre côté, on dit que les familles canadiennes ont le droit de savoir quels services seront coupés.

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Madame la Présidente, on apprenait hier que le Conseil du Trésor imposait un bâillon à tous les ministères à propos des réductions dans les services publics. Qui a donné cette directive? Le même ministre qui présidera à des compressions qui pourraient atteindre 8 milliards de dollars, ce qui représente beaucoup de services à perdre. C'est aussi ce même ministre qui a tenté de cacher une caisse occulte de 50 millions de dollars. Pour la transparence, on repassera!

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Putting families before Senators and PMO

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, les conservateurs ont des choix à faire pour le prochain budget et un répit aux familles ne sera pas de trop pour une fois. Comme l'ont dit Fitch et Moody's, le plan de ce gouvernement visant à réduire les services va freiner la croissance économique. Le coût d'un seul F-35, toute sa durée de vie, est de 450 millions de dollars. Avec ce montant, on pourrait payer les prestations de la Sécurité de la vieillesse pour 70 000 aînés pendant un an.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question in the House ~ Are the Conservatives going to choose planes, prisons and tax gifts over Canadian families?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, c'est le ministre qui a perdu toute sa crédibilité dans ce dossier avec le projet de loi. L'agence de dotation Fitch et Moody nous dit que le plan de réduction des conservateurs est « un risque pour la croissance. » L'analyste en chef de Moody pour le Canada affirme que « les compressions trop rapides ont des effets négatifs ».

À LA CHAMBRE ~ Période des questions ~ les conservateurs veulent nous faire payer 30 milliards pour leur mauvais choix d'avions en coupant dans les services publics

41ième parlement, 1ière session ~

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, les mauvaises décisions des conservateurs s'accumulent et les Canadiens en paient le prix. Les travailleurs n'arrivent pas à recevoir leurs chèques d'assurance-emploi à temps et les aînés s'inquiètent des réductions au programme de Sécurité de la vieillesse, mais ce gouvernement s'entête à gaspiller 30 milliards de dollars pour des avions qui ne répondent pas à nos besoins. Lockheed Martin confirme que le prix des F-35 va encore augmenter. C'est ce que le NPD dit depuis des mois.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Conservatives shut down Parliamentary debate again, this time on the Bank Act, S-5

41st Parliament, 1st Session

Context : Questions and Comments

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Madame la Présidente, je remercie mon collègue pour son discours sur ces questions. Il a mentionné le fait que les conservateurs imposent le bâillon pour ce projet de loi. Effectivement, il sont en train de clôturer les débats. C'est vrai que du côté conservateur, ils n'ont absolument rien à offrir. Ils n'ont que le même discours. Mais chez nous, on a fait une analyse, comme le député a fait dans son premier discours et aujourd'hui. On a discuté et on regarde l'ensemble de la législation, y compris l'augmentation du seuil d'actifs indiquant qu'on peut avoir une main-mise sur les institutions financières allant jusqu'à 12 milliards de dollars, ce qui n'est pas souhaitable dans le contexte actuel.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question ~ F-35s, OAS

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, Conservatives have finally hit the panic button on the F-35. Even they can no longer pretend that this $30 billion boondoggle is on track or ignore what the NDP has been saying in the House for months. The U.S. is confirming it will delay its F-35 order. It is cutting orders. This will increase costs for Canadians yet again. The Government of Canada has now called an emergency international meeting on the F-35 fiasco.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Why did the Prime Minister break his promise and why is he betraying Canadian seniors?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, selon la Banque royale du Canada, les Canadiens ont de moins en moins confiance en l'économie actuelle, donc de moins en moins confiance dans les politiques de ce gouvernement. Parce que les conservateurs veulent les pénaliser là où ça fait mal, dans la Sécurité de la vieillesse, pendant qu'ils donnent 3 milliards de dollars en cadeaux fiscaux, ce qui pourrait payer la Sécurité de la vieillesse pour 462 000 aînés.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ reminding the Conservative government about the facts around economic growth projections for Canada

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, voici des faits. Ce gouvernement est caractérisé par des pertes d'emplois à répétition, des usines qui ferment les unes après les autres: Papiers White Birch, Mabe Canada, AstroZeneca et Electro-Motive. Chaque fermeture crée des familles qui souffrent. Voilà ce que les politiques de ce gouvernement ont fait: des pertes d'emplois, des familles avec un niveau record d'endettement et des réductions réelles dans les salaires de 2 p. 100 depuis un an.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ Will the Conservatives raise OAS eligibility to 67 years, yes or no?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Supplementary Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development tried to justify spending $30 billion on jet fighter planes by saying that they are needed against foreign invasions. No foreign powers will invade us to scoop our pension system because there will not be much of it left if the Conservatives have their way.

41st Parliament, 1st Session

Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, mais s'il continue comme ça, ça va être « Good bye Charlie Brown! » Ça c'est sûr! Parce que ce gouvernement se préoccupe davantage des PDG que des aînés et des familles. Il a fait cadeau de nouvelles réductions d'impôt généreuses aux grandes entreprises qui gagnent déjà des sommes astronomiques.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le gouvernement est lamentable. Les familles canadiennes n'ont jamais été aussi endettées que sous les conservateurs. Les salaires des travailleurs et des travailleuses ont diminué de 2 p. 100 depuis un an et 90 000 familles canadiennes ont perdu leur gagne-pain cet automne. Et que fait ce gouvernement? Il fait des beaux cadeaux aux pétrolières et aux banques le 1er janvier et il hausse les primes d'assurance-emploi pour les familles.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le directeur parlementaire du budget confirme que ce gouvernement a de plus en plus de mal à gérer avec précision ses prévisions budgétaires. L'écart entre leurs chiffres et les vrais chiffres est en moyenne de 10 milliards de dollars par an. Ce gouvernement est trop optimiste et il cache les chiffres du grand public. Ça prend de la transparence pour produire un plan de création d'emplois. L'économie en a besoin et les familles canadiennes aussi.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ loss of manufacturing jobs in Canada

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le mois dernier, on a perdu 19 000 emplois dont près de la moitié dans le secteur manufacturier. C'est un autre triste bilan pour ce gouvernement qui se trouve déjà avec le pire déficit commercial de notre histoire, avec le pire niveau de dette familiale de notre histoire et maintenant avec le pire dossier sur l'emploi manufacturier de notre histoire en tant que pays. L'emploi dans ce secteur est à son plus bas niveau depuis qu'on tient des statistiques là-dessus. Pourquoi est-ce que le gouvernement n'agit pas pour protéger ce secteur et quel est le plan de ce gouvernement pour aider les travailleurs et les travailleuses qui ont perdu leurs emplois à cause des politiques de ce gouvernement?

December 5th, 2011

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ the widening gap between the rich and the rest of us

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, le dernier rapport de l'OCDE est accablant. L'écart entre les riches et les pauvres se creuse plus rapidement ici que dans d'autres pays développés. Les pauvres s'appauvrissent et les riches s'enrichissent. Les familles moyennes ont de plus en plus de mal à joindre les deux bouts. L'OCDE le dit clairement: les Canadiens ont besoin de bons emplois et d'un système d'impôt progressif et équitable. Mais ce gouvernement ne fait que des cadeaux aux entreprises bourrées d'argent.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ pressing the Harper government on the HST

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Prime Minister sent the premier of B.C. home empty-handed with no agreement to reduce the $1.6 billion payback on the hated HST, money that will have to come from health and education B.C. families rely on, no recognition of two years of HST revenue already collected, and no agreement to fast-track the dismantling of the HST British Columbians have voted against.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ HST

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, B.C. families did not want the Conservative-Liberal harmonized sales tax three years ago, but the government refused to listen. We rejected the unfair tax again in referendum last summer.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

The Speaker: Oral questions, the hon. member for Burnaby—New Westminster.

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, the OECD warns of troubled global financial markets and family debt levels of Canadians are bad news for our economy. They say that the outlook for the Canadian economy has worsened significantly. OECD predicts growth for next year almost one full percentage point below budget predictions and below the minister's recent revision.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, Canadians are flabbergasted to find out the Conservatives want to break our solemn commitment on the Kyoto protocol. Of the 191 countries that signed and ratified the Kyoto protocol agreement, Canada is the only country repudiating it.

IN THE HOUSE ~ Question Period ~ poor quality and lower paying jobs under Conservative watch

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, ce gouvernement devrait s'attaquer au double déficit du marché de l'emploi, déficit de deux millions de Canadiens exclus du marché de travail et déficit dans la qualité des emplois créés. Les quelques emplois qu'ils ont créés sont de moindre qualité, moins payés, moins stables et avec moins de bénéfices. La question est donc simple. Quand est-ce que ce gouvernement va avoir le courage de faire face à cette réalité? Quand est-ce que ce gouvernement va changer de cap, et quand est-ce qu'il va créer des emplois de qualité comme ceux que les familles ont perdus?

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question Period

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, 72 000 emplois ont été perdus au cours du seul mois d'octobre. Le coût de la vie ne cesse d'augmenter et le taux d'endettement des familles atteint un niveau record. Comment voulez-vous que les familles épargnent pour leur retraite quand elles doivent payer leurs cartes de crédit et peinent à trouver du travail? Ce gouvernement a le culot de dire que son plan va faciliter la vie à des millions de Canadiens. Que fait ce gouvernement? Rien, sauf faciliter la vie de ses amis bien placés.

Les Canadiens ont peur de perdre leur emploi, un nombre record de familles font appel aux banques alimentaires et il y a un niveau record d'inégalités. Près de 2 millions de personnes sont sans emploi, mais il n'existe aucun plan concret de création d'emploi pour soutenir l'économie.

41st Parliament, 1st Session ~ Context : Question

Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, for 14 years Canada's firefighters have been coming to Parliament Hill to ask that their families be taken care of if they die in the line of duty or if they die saving others through a public safety officer compensation fund. Five years ago, the NDP delivered and passed legislation through the House directing the government to do this. Since that time, dozens of Canada's firefighters and police officers have passed away and their families are often left destitute. The United States has a fund; Canada does not.

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, dans sa politique d'appui de la recherche et développement, le rapport Jenkins dévoilé hier confirme que la stratégie d'innovation de ce gouvernement est un échec. Ce gouvernement a la pire performance parmi les principaux pays industrialisés pour l'investissement public direct en recherche et développement. Ce gouvernement est parmi les derniers dans le nombre de brevets produits. Il est dernier dans le nombre de diplômés en doctorat et parmi les derniers pour la contribution financière des entreprises à la recherche et développement.

M. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NPD): Monsieur le Président, la politique de ce gouvernement en recherche et développement fait pitié. Un rapport récent le confirme. Le Canada arrive dernier parmi les pays industrialisés pour le financement direct de la recherche. Il est avant-dernier dans le développement des brevets obtenus et avant-dernier pour ce qui est de la remise de diplômes au niveau des doctorats: échec total.
