Question for Senator Eaton on Bill C-6

1st Session, 42nd Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 65 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: I wanted to follow up on the questions Senator Jaffer had posed to Senator Eaton when they were discussing the comparison between Bill C-6 and Bill C-24, and we were talking about Canadian citizens who are Canadian-born. It seems to me the honourable senator was advocating for the revocation of citizenship for those Canadian-born citizens who have dual citizenship. But it's quite easy to imagine where you have two Cana…

Question for Senator Lankin on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 49 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: Would you take another question, Senator Lankin? Senator Lankin: Yes; I will. Senator Dyck: I was listening carefully to you talking about vulnerable groups and how the government was concerned about vulnerable groups who may be coerced into giving consent to medically assisted death. In your speech, you talked several times about the disabled, the physically disabled. I'm wondering why, in the list of groups that you…

Question for Senator Carignan on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 49 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: Would the honourable senator take another question? Senator Carignan: Yes. Senator Dyck: In your response to Senator Wallace, you referred us to paragraph 114 of the Carter decision, which does list a group of patients who could be called "decisionally vulnerable," and it does go through a numbered list, but it also says in another sentence that Canada argues that there is no reliable way to identify those who are vul…

Question for Senator Jaffer on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 48 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: I'm curious about this amendment and why you have put it in as amending Senator Cowan's amendment, rather than amending clause 9.1 of the bill and then putting in that section which is talking about the independent review and 180 days. Why would you not have included in that clause the idea of the two-year limit? Senator Jaffer: That's a very good question. That is another way that I will proceed, depending on what hap…

Question for Senator Plett on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 47 Senator Dyck: Would the honourable senator take another question? Senator Plett: Yes. Hon. Lillian Dyck: I would like to follow up on that question. Could you explain a little more about the intention of the amendment? I know you have had the benefit of attending all the meetings. You indicated to us that there was unanimous support at the joint committee stage. Could you flesh it out so we could have a better understanding of why the benef…

Question for Senator Batters on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 46 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: Thank you, Senator Batters. You were asking some of the questions that were in my mind as well. Both of us are from Saskatchewan. I know that you know as well that psychiatrists are in great demand. There are probably not enough psychiatrists to serve our province, particularly in northern Saskatchewan. Would you consider that there could be someone other than a psychiatrist who could confirm that the person was mental…

Question for Senator Ogilvie on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 45 Senator Dyck: Will the honourable senator take a question? Senator Ogilvie: Certainly, senator. Senator Dyck: Thank you. I enjoyed your speech very much. I thought you were very, very clear. You stated that this bill will be taking away the rights of a category of people, and that is cruel. I agree with you entirely. In the court challenges, in particular the Carter decision, was the Government of Canada not arguing that no one had those r…

Question for Senator Wallace on Bill C-14

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 45 Senator Dyck: Senator Wallace, would you take a question? Senator Wallace: Yes. Senator Dyck: Thank you. I very much enjoyed listening to your speech. As I was looking back at the Carter decision, you were saying that you didn't agree with the amendment because we can infringe upon a person's section 7 rights by invoking section 1; however, if you look at the Carter decision in paragraphs 65 and 66, they do talk extensively about the suffe…

Question for the Hon. Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence: Bold Eagle Program

1st Session, 42st Parliament, Volume 150, Issue 17 Hon. Lillian Eva Dyck: I was wondering if the minister could tell us whether he was aware of the Bold Eagle Program, which is essentially a way of helping to recruit and to supply indigenous youth with summer employment and leadership training. If so, are there any plans to enhance that program? Hon. Harjit S. Sajjan, P.C., M.P., Minister of National Defence: I'm very familiar with the Bold Eagle Program, actually; I have been since it first…
