Throughout the COVID 19 pandemic the world has seen widespread discrimination and my home country, Canada, has not been immune.  Today, we are here to discuss vaccine discrimination, develop a framework to prevent vaccine discrimination and find a balance between protecting human rights and freedoms and protecting the health and safety of our communities. Living free from all forms of... 11/10/2022 | 20:33:14 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Honourable colleagues, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak to this crucial issue today.

In Canada, however, it remains the date of the worst terrorist attack in our history. On that date, a bomb exploded on Air India Flight 182, originating in Toronto and stopping in Montreal to pick up passengers bound for Heathrow and on to New Delhi, killing all — and it exploded over the Atlantic Ocean — killing all 329 passengers and crew members on that flight, 280 of whom... 01/10/2019 | 11:31:22 Good morning colleagues. Let me begin by thanking rapporteur Mr Sylvain WASERMAN and his colleagues for their outstanding work to advance whistleblower protection. This issue has never been as relevant as it is today, as our societies grow more complex and our economies more reliant on information than ever before. Indeed, Canada’s experience grappling with this important topic has positioned it as an emerging leader. At the same time, Canada has much to learn from the Member and observer...
