Mr. Speaker, the government has yet another scheme about Kyoto. This is not a plan, it is a con game.
Ottawa says it is based on consultation with the provinces, yet Nova Scotia says this latest version reflects contempt and disdain. Saskatchewan says the plan is being rammed down the throats in Saskatchewan.
This is a profound invasion of the constitutional jurisdictions of the provinces. The federal government has either rejected or changed 10 of the 12 principles proposed by the provinces.
Why does the government refuse to work honestly with the provinces on climate change?
