Hon. Bardish Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, there have been discussions among the parties and if you seek it, I think you will find unanimous consent for the following motion:

That, notwithstanding any Standing or Special Order or usual practice of the House:

(a) the amendment to the motion respecting the senate amendments to Bill C-83, An Act to amend the Corrections and Conditional Release Act and another Act, be deemed negatived on division and the main motion be deemed carried on division; and

(b) the amendment to the motion for second reading of Bill C-100, An Act to implement the Agreement between Canada, the United States of America and the United Mexican States, be deemed negatived on division and that the Bill be deemed read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on International Trade.

Hon. Bardish Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, there is something about this place when there are flowers on a desk. It is just a heavy place to be in. I want my Conservative colleagues to know that our thoughts are definitely with them.

I also want to take a moment to say that it takes many people to support us in doing the work we do. Whether it is the people who clean for us, the people who feed us or the people who support us and allow us to do the important work we do, I would like to, on behalf of all members, thank them.

I would like to thank the House administration and the pages. I would also like to thank and acknowledge the families and loved ones who allow us to do the work we do and allow the people who support us to do the work they do. They often go unnoticed and are not always appreciated, but we sincerely appreciate all their efforts.

I also want to thank the House leadership teams, from all parties, that have worked together, including the whips' desks. They are here with us to support us, and they work very hard. They do not put their names on a ballot, but they sure do allow us to serve on behalf of democracy.

I wish all members a safe, enjoyable and healthy summer. I want to see everyone back here. I want them to be successful in all their endeavours. I know that many colleagues are going through challenges, and I want them all to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. We wish everyone well with all their endeavours.

Therefore, out of respect for the memory of our late colleague, Mark Warawa, I move, seconded by the member for Portage—Lisgar:

That the House do now adjourn.

Hon. Bardish Chagger

Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Because many members want to make brief comments on their petitions, I believe if you seek it, you will find unanimous consent to add up to 10 minutes to petitions today.

Hon. Bardish Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I was speaking with the hon. member because I was commending her on her excellent speech and the work she has done. An area I feel she has not been able to share is about the programs we have when it comes to transitioning to a cleaner, greener economy. I am wondering if she could expand on some of the additional programs that will be available? We have quite an impressive comprehensive plan that we have put forward, because it is so important that the economy and the environment go together and that we ensure that future generations have a cleaner, greener economy they can count on.
