Mr. Speaker, the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities's own web page contradicts his talking points.
The Navigable Waters Protection Act FAQ alone mentions the environment 23 times, and the website says of the act:
These stiff new penalties reflect the government's ongoing concern towards maintaining the safety of public navigation and the environment.
That is right, according to the department, the Navigable Waters Protection Act is about protecting the environment.
Why is the minister so confused about his portfolio?
