Jenny responds to the new Liberal minority government's Throne Speech

On December 9, 2019, I gave my reply to the Speech from the Throne. Vancouver East is one of Canada's most diverse and progressive communities in the country. I am so very proud of our record here in Van East. We fight hard for what we believe in, and we have so much to celebrate. Yet, unfortunately, like me, the people of Vancouver East were left wanting after this throne speech. From affordable housing, to lasting justice for Indigenous people; from pharmacare and dental care to the urgent need for safe supply; from electoral reform to averting climate crisis - there is so much more that needs to be done and done now for the people of Vancouver East and indeed the entire country. I put forward these suggestions in the spirit of co-operation and saying to the government it is a minority government and New Democrats are here to work with it. Let us work for the people and act now make the changes.

 

 

Jenny asks: Where's the real, accountable action to protect our climate and our Earth???

Jenny rose in the House today to ask when the Liberal minority government will table legislation on these points, and she will persist in demanding this action, because we have no Planet B:

Jenny asks: Won't you pilot a safe-supply program to save lives?

The Throne Speech briefly mentioned the opioid overdose crisis, but provided no details, no plans. Jenny has asked time and again that this epidemic be declared a national health emergency to no avail. Jenny wants to know: Would the Liberals be prepared to at least pilot a safe-supply program so that we can begin to save lives and demonstrate to communities across the country that we can save lives?

Jenny in the House: Housing First!

On December 9, 2019, I rose in the House of Commons to speak about the national housing crisis. Safe, secure, affordable housing is a basic human right. There is an acute and severe need for the federal government to take immediate action on housing. If federal funds to build housing flow now we can work together to do this - ending homelessness is entirely possible if only parliamentarians have the political will to do it:
