6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Roméo Dallaire | Honourable senators, I'm back on Bill C-394 and, if you remember the discussion yesterday, the aim of the bill is to seek to criminalize the act of gang recruitment by making it a criminal offence to recruit, solicit, encourage, coerce and invite a person to join a criminal organization.
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Art Eggleton | Honourable senators, I rise to speak to Bill C-462, An Act restricting the fees charged by promoters of the Disability Tax Credit and making consequential amendments to the Tax Court of Canada Act.
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Wilfred Moore | Maybe you could find an answer to my question of yesterday and convey it to Speaker Kinsella before the signing ceremony, which is set for next Tuesday. I would appreciate if you could look into that again.
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Jim Munson | Mr. Leader, where is your government on this issue?
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Wilfred Moore | Will you not agree that that $2 million would be well spent to encourage our youth? There's great discipline that goes with being a member of a cadet corps. There's fellowship and pride of wearing the uniform. Would you not agree that would be money well spent?
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Terry Mercer | Does the Leader of the Government in the Senate not think that balancing the federal budget on the backs of young cadets is a little too much?
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Percy Downe | If we have agencies and Crown corporations collecting fines and then deciding on their own where the money should go, many Canadians would question why that's not coming back to the general revenue of the government.

6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Joan Fraser | Honourable senators, today I want to draw attention in particular to one of our number, because she incarnates so much of what International Women's Day is about — Senator Catherine Callbeck.
6 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Joan Fraser | Honourable senators, as Senator Ataullahjan just mentioned, we will be celebrating International Women's Day on Saturday, March 8. For a little over a century, the world has designated March 8 as a day of commemoration and celebration, and as a day to promote women's rights and the status of women. It must be said that our success has been marginal.

5 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Roméo Dallaire | Although you have been responding to my queries regarding major Crown projects and acquiring new equipment, you have still been totally obtuse on this: When are we going to see a Canadian defence policy to put a framework around all the degradation of capabilities that you're doing to the Canadian Forces today?
5 Mar, 2014 | By Senator Terry Mercer | Will the leader not admit that the dismantling of the Canadian Wheat Board and its replacement system of negotiations are now failures, as witnessed by the huge backlog of grain shipments?
