Mr. Speaker, that is a good question from my colleague from Winnipeg North.
Education is indeed important, and the Conservatives have a poor record when it comes to that. They cut the budget of the only environmental museum in North America, the Biosphere. We worked very hard to defend the Biosphere, which the Conservatives completely abandoned two years ago.
With respect to plastic microbeads in particular, yes, the federal government needs to be willing to introduce a legislative framework for the cosmetics and consumer product industries. That said, we also need to make the public aware, so that people know what types of products contain microbeads and what they can do to discourage the use of these products.
