Statement made on 09 May 2006 by Senator Pierrette Ringuette

Hon. Pierrette Ringuette:

Honourable senators, I would like to bringyour attention to the issue of creating spaces, as this government has outlinedin the budget tabled last week. Yes, creating spaces for prisoners and creatingspaces for child care. Ha, but let us look further than the current spin on thisissue.

Creating spaces for child care is only an incentive mechanism — $250 millionin tax credits, not cash, per year for five years to create 125,000 child-carespaces. In real terms it is about $400 million for five years or, even better,it represents $3,200 per child-care space in capital costs with no incentive foroperating costs.

Business of the Senate

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Joan Fraser | Colleagues, I'm rising to speak on behalf of my leader, the Leader of the Opposition, Senator Cowan, who had to be in Halifax tonight on public business. I must tell you that when I called him to say we were going to be adjourning for the summer tonight, he was, I could tell, quite irritated, not because he wanted us all to go on working like galley slaves but because he had already written a speech that he wanted to give tomorrow morning.

The Senate—Promoting and Defending Causes that Concern the Public Interest—Inquiry

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Jim Munson | Honourable senators, I am looking for a bit of love and empathy at this late hour because I do have a speech, but you have to understand that, in the interest of having dignified departures for our five senators this week, I gave up my time to make sure that we were able to celebrate the departures of Senator Buth, Senator Segal, Senator Callbeck, Senator Dallaire and Senator Champagne.

Study on Status of Canada's International Security and Defence Relations

19 Jun, 2014 | By Senator Grant Mitchell | So, you thought you weren't going to hear from me? Well, I fooled you! So there! I rise in support of this report by the Defence Committee recommending that Canada become involved in ballistic missile defence with NORAD. I congratulate Senator Lang and other members of the committee for what I think was great collaborative work, completely non-partisan, very extensive and detailed with intense research.
