Madam Speaker, let us come back to amendment 2 made by the Senate, which the government rejects and the NDP supports.
Imagine that I am the Government of Canada and that I want to award contracts for major projects. It seems to me that I would have the upper hand. It would be pretty easy to award the contract to the lowest bidder, but I could also decide to award it to the bidder who offers the best chances of achieving our greenhouse gas emissions targets.
Why does the government not make the most of this advantageous position to promote environmental protection in order to eventually reach the targets we hope to achieve?
