Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Welcome back, Minister O'Regan. It's nice to see you again.
In April 2021, you were the Minister of Natural Resources. You said that the just transition was about lowering emissions, about CCUS, and about blue hydrogen. You reiterated that position in March of this year on a visit to Alberta, notably after Russia had invaded Ukraine and exposed the hypocrisy of European energy policy to a hostile foreign actor.
When Canada could have taken steps over the last half decade to become a reliable supplier of energy to the world, we were nowhere. That's largely as a result of your government's hostility to our world-leading industry.
CCUS, which is one of your solutions, is still stalled. Tell us what's holding up your government on providing what you see as one of the transition solutions to decarbonization.
