Mr. Speaker, in response to the rebuttal, I would like to point out that there are components that actually encourage people to make investments to help protect our environment in the clean-tech sector, in public transit, and in conservation measures. We are going to put a price on pollution, because to me, the really negative aspect of not doing so is that we are making pollution free for those who actually damage our atmosphere, and we download those costs onto everyday Canadians.
There was an election a few years ago, in 2015. We committed to grow our economy and protect the environment at the same time. We were transparent during that campaign and indicated that our plan would involve putting a price on pollution.
We have a duty to protect our environment and to grow our economy. Just because the Conservatives could not do either does not mean that we are not going to do both.
