Let me clarify. I am certainly not suggesting the federal government doesn't have a role. The reason we've been expending so much time and effort is to ensure that the provinces are moving forward and fulfilling their obligations. As you know very well, if they aren't doing that the federal government is required under SARA to get involved. There is active work.
I'm certainly not in any way diminishing the status of caribou in Canada. There are 51 herds that are subject to the report from 2012 and the vast majority are not in good condition. The work that needs to be done is developing range plans that relate to each of the specific herds and putting in place an action plan that we scientifically believe will enable the recovery of the species.
