Mr. Speaker, just last week, the Minister of the Environment admitted that Canada needed better environmental monitoring but today we learn that the Conservatives plan to eliminate a key unit studying smokestack pollution. One step forward, four steps back.
What is the plan to replace Environment Canada's smokestack pollution team? The plan is to outsource its work to that great environmental country, the United States.
Could the Conservatives tell us how the U.S. environmental protection agency is supposed to monitor smokestack pollution at a Canadian coal-fired power plant?
