Mr. Speaker, this is serious, because the issue here is not the environment, but predatory federalism.
To quote the government, “The purpose of this Act is...to regulate trade in energy products”.
This is a takeover of Hydro-Québec by the federal government, period. It will be able to decide who can sell electricity, to whom, and under what conditions.
Do the federal Liberals realize that what they are doing is wresting from Quebec any control over its energy future?
