Mr. Chairman, this shows a lack of knowledge of how the European Union functions today. In 1997, the EU agreed on an 8% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Greenhouse gas reduction targets were divided up by territory, basically a process similar to that used by the EU but different on the basis of territory, and established the carbon exchange.
Minister, can you please explain why there's a contradiction between territorial distribution and a carbon exchange? Perhaps I failed to understand the problem. However, I would remind you that Mr. Villeneuve told us it was clear that regional measures are much more useful, since energy policy is decided by the provinces and provinces can establish exchanges and assist one another.
Is that not what you are contradicting?
