Environment committee  . The statistics speak for themselves: criminal prosecutions are rare under CEPA. I can provide you with those statistics.

Environment committee   measures and enforcement actions and it's focused on small mom-and-pop shops, I think is troubling.

Environment committee   resources to handle especially the serious offences. I want to get back to the NOx, very briefly. Are we including it in our climate change list of greenhouse gas emissions, or is it something we also need to consider including? This is for Muhannad, please.

Environment committee   a cumulative reduction of 14,600 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, which is the equivalent of taking 4,500 cars off the road.
