Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague. I share his concerns.
This bill does indeed have some positive aspects. For example, there will be an agency with some experience in environment. Furthermore, environmental, social, economic, and health effects will be considered, as will public participation. We have all that in Quebec. We have an environmental review board called the Bureau d'audiences publiques sur l'environnement that was created in the late 1970s under the René Lévesque government.
However, the minister will have veto power and will get to make the final decision, which is unacceptable.
