Mr. Speaker, let us talk about action on the environment instead of rhetoric, because that is what Canadians want to see.
While the NDP was sending out press releases, it took only a few short months for our government to become the first country in the world to ban the use of PFCAs, a toxic chemical that causes cancer in Canadians. What did we get for that? Our action led to an endorsement by the Canadian Cancer Society, which said “we welcome this action”.
This is the kind of action that Canadians want on the environment file and this is the kind of action that our government will continue to deliver.
