Mr. Speaker, today is Clean Air Day, a celebration of environmentally-friendly activities that promote clean air and good health across Canada.
The three opposition parties worked hard to improve and strengthen the provisions of the Conservative clean air act, but the Conservative Party refused to accept the amendments proposed by the opposition, which, incidentally, holds the majority of seats in this House.
Canadians deserve to be protected from pollution, but the Conservative government continues to ignore the problem.
The Conservative government should accept the measures proposed by the opposition and reintroduce the bill as amended in committee.
Today represents an excellent opportunity to make environmentally-friendly choices and improve air quality. It is high time the government did something.
