In my role in the Office of the Auditor General, my job is to talk to you about the results of our audits. In my position, I cannot give you just opinions about things. I cannot opine.
What I can tell you is that we did do an audit on Canada's investments in green, clean technology. We released it at the same time as the adaptation audit and the mitigation audit. We found that Canada—I'm going by memory here, because it was a few months ago—does a very good job of investing in new green, clean technology. Our audit was quite clear.... The language I used was that Canadians should feel confident that the money we're putting into a couple of these funds run by Natural Resources Canada and Sustainable Development Technology Canada is well managed and well given out to new green technology.
In our audit, we found that we're good at the beginning, but we're not that good at getting from the beginning to full-scale market implementation. That's part of the innovation curve that Canada is not as good at. I would suggest that many studies are indicating that there are new opportunities in clean technology. Also, some people have indicated that Canada should become a leader in this, because we have opportunities to become a leader in it.
There's something you said that concerned me, which was that others are not doing anything in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions?
