Mr. Speaker, the Conservatives are not doing their homework on the international scene, and they are not getting the job done here on the home front.
More than 90% of the infrastructure projects will go ahead without a federal assessment of their environmental impact. Speeding up the stimulus projects is one thing, but doing so by disregarding any environmental impact is completely irresponsible and illegal.
The exemptions for federal assessments were not approved by Parliament. They are being challenged in court, which could end up slowing each and every project further if due process is not followed.
Why do they not follow the law, respect future generations, and evaluate the environmental impact of all of these infrastructure projects?
