Mr. Speaker, I doubt I will have a better answer for my colleague, but I can talk about another of this government's inconsistencies.
Bill C-57 is another bill that was kind of rammed down parliamentarians' throats. It includes a definition of sustainability that reads as follows:
Sustainability is defined as “the ability to protect the environment, contribute to the social and economic well-being of the people of Canada and preserve their health in a manner that benefits present and future generations.”
That was in C-57.
Sadly, in Bill C-69, direct economic consideration is now missing from the extensive list of factors to consider.
That is therefore not the first inconsistency we see from the Liberals, and I somehow doubt it will be the last.
