Mr. Speaker, I thank the member not only for his question but for the interest he has consistently displayed since being elected to this Chamber on the whole question and file of the environment.
The Globe conference was probably the premier conference anywhere in the world that very eloquently showcased environmental technologies. There were representatives from 60 different countries and 123 officials just from China. It says that there are 4,500 small and medium size Canadian firms employing 200,000 Canadians in good jobs, jobs for the economy. It also underscores that it is not a question of a good environment or jobs; we can, we should and we will have both.
