Mr. Speaker, we are pleased to see the bill moving forward for Rouge National Urban Park, but I have some concerns.
When we look across the country, in Gros Morne, for example, the recommendation has been that it needs a buffer zone around the park to protect its ecological integrity long term. Wood Buffalo is currently being investigated by UNESCO. We are waiting for the report to be released any day. There are concerns about the Site C dam in British Columbia and the impact on water and wetlands around Wood Buffalo. In Jasper, we had a $69-million bicycle trail appear out of nowhere in the budget for next year.
Moving forward, how do the government and the minister plan to protect the ecological integrity of this important park?
