Mr. Speaker, currently the environment committee is reviewing the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. One aspect of the review which has great potential is the consideration of the introduction of economic instruments.
Economic instruments can provide the incentive required for industry to adopt the philosophy of pollution prevention. They do offer the potential of changing behaviour and preserving the
environment for future generations. By providing the incentive to improve technology we not only prevent pollution in Canada but develop technologies that may be exported throughout the world.
Pollution knows no boundaries or jurisdictions. I call upon all levels of government to work together to address our environmental concerns and implement pollution prevention legislation.
