Mr. Speaker, the minister vilifies his critics, but he is willing to spend thousands of taxpayer dollars to sponsor a retreat for his oil industry friends.
The PMO has told the minister to believe in climate change, but clearly he does not believe it is actually a problem.
The Conservatives' inaction on climate change hurts Canada's reputation. That is the message from his own diplomats in Europe and from industry. These are his friends, not the so-called radicals the minister imagines are hiding under his bed at night.
Will he take the advice of his friends and clean up his act, yes or no?
