Mr. Speaker, as I said during the election campaign, Canadians can rest assured that we will reach our greenhouse gas reduction targets set in Paris. We will even exceed those targets. We are also committed to achieving net zero in 2050. That is vital not only for the environment, but also for economic growth. We know that creating good jobs and economic growth for our communities across Canada is an essential part of environmental protection. We will still do both at the same time and find the right balance.
