Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Minister Baird, for joining us here today.
I have an interest in arguing a little bit about energy. We've all identified that the use of energy here is the key element in moving forward in meeting our Kyoto commitments. Many of the graphs that are represented there speak to the expansion of our energy markets in North America.
You've indicated that you're the co-chair of the Environment and Energy Security Committee within cabinet. Can you explain to us how that committee will deal with this act and what the relationship between this act and that committee will be?
