The Fight for Pay Equity Continues
There has been a lot of talk these days about equality between men and women. The Liberal government brought gender parity to cabinet, while we, the NDP, moved a motion on pay equity. Working the same job for different pay is just not right. Canadian women are still paid on average 23% less than their male colleagues. This wage gap is even worse for First Nations women, visible minorities, and women with disabilities.

The Federal Government Needs to Go Green
As we celebrate Earth Day, it’s disappointing to see that the Conservatives didn’t proposed anything to combat climate change in their 2015 budget, which was tabled in the House on April 21. Earth Day drives a whole year’s worth of efforts to change people’s lifestyles and society as a whole. Yet the Harper government continues to subsidize the fossil fuel industry, at a rate of more than $1 billion a year. This budget does nothing to promote renewable energy or energy efficiency. As a result, the federal government is standing still when it should be going green.

New Democrats: Leading the Charge Against C-51
The Conservative government likes to pretend the Official Opposition is on the sidelines when it comes to Bill C-51. In fact, New Democrats have been on the front line — leading the charge — opposing Conservative schemes to ram the bill through Parliament at all costs. If this government were really serious about security, they wouldn’t shy away from meaningful study and debate of their sweeping new bill.

My speech about S-219
I rose in the House of Commons on Thursday, February 5 to talk about this bill. My opinion is that this bill should continue the legislative process and studied by a committee ofthe House of Commons. And contrary to what happened in the Senate, the testimonies must come from the entire Vietnamese-Canadian community, whether they are for or against S-219.

Conservatives targeting Elections Canada
It comes as no surprise that the Conservatives have unilaterally decided to target Elections Canada to “strengthen” democracy. During every election in which Stephen Harper has run as a candidate, the Conservative Party has had serious disputes with Elections Canada over violations of the Elections Act.
