You say that major efforts were made. How many individual bottles of water were purchased for the G7? I never buy water bottles. I may have bought three of them in my life, but that is because I am cheap and don't like wasting money. I don't see why I would pay for water when it is free. In addition, three-quarters of the bill cover transportation costs. I will stop my personal reflexion here, but let's be clear: everyone is for virtue, but everything has become suspect. By the way, that's fine.
I would like to come back to the relevant question asked by my colleague, Mr. Drouin, about assessing the environmental footprint of the vehicles you buy. Are you taking into account the fact that a vehicle manufactured in Asia must travel half the globe on a ship, one of the most polluting modes of transportation that currently exist? We could buy vehicles manufactured in Oshawa, a few kilometres from Toronto, the largest urban centre in Canada.
Do you assess the environmental footprint when you make that type of a purchase? Do you think about purchasing Canadian goods first, and then purchasing green goods?
