Mr. Speaker, the clean air act will reduce greenhouse gases and pollution in Canada. I want to thank the Minister of the Environment for her courage to put forth a comprehensive and practical solution.
This is the first time all industry will have mandatory targets, some beginning as early as next spring.
This plan will do more towards addressing our Kyoto targets than the 13 years of Liberal inaction.
We all have a responsibility, every level of government, every sector of the economy and every individual Canadian.
The Central Okanagan Regional District, led by the municipal governments of Kelowna and Lake Country, have already taken proactive measures to address environmental quality. I applaud their efforts in promoting sustainable environmental programs, alternative energy and motivating our communities to go green.
The clean air act will reduce pollution and greenhouse gases, regulate all industry, set realistic and achievable targets, and reward Canadians for smart choices.
Once again a Conservative government delivers real action on the environment.
