Well, thank you very much. That's kind of you. I appreciate those kind words. I appreciate the fact you were there supporting the government in Paris.
You're absolutely right. The commitments of all governments do not translate to striving below 1.5. They don't, and that's why the ratcheting up mechanism every five years is going to be critical.
In terms of where we will be, and in terms of our international commitment, make no mistake about it, the federal government is going to show leadership on this. I don't think there's any point in putting a new target out and saying, “wow, we're great, we've got an ambitious target”, but once again we don't have a plan to get there.
While six months is not as fast as some would like, I think that is how you move forward in a thoughtful way. As we have heard, different provinces and territories have different challenges and different opportunities. We need to sit down with them and figure out how we can support them.
I've said that our target is a floor and not a ceiling. At the end of six months my job is to provide the Prime Minister with a recommendation.
