Thank you, Mr. Chair.
This motion speaks to a very important issue that is in front of the House right now in terms of a unanimous motion that was passed in Parliament last week. It directly speaks to the issue in front of the transport committee, because transport has the responsibility for oil spill response planning.
My motion is:
That the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities engage in a study of the federal government's oil spill response planning and capacity, with particular interest in response to spills caused by off-shore drilling along all three coasts, and report the results of the study and make recommendations to the House of Commons.
