Environment committee   at seriously, I will probably be here again five years from now and have an almost cut-and-paste copy of this section.

Environment committee   to know is that even though Treasury Board now is working on this framework--and you will remember that Treasury Board came here and talked about the RMAF, the framework for the pilot on climate change, to develop this framework on horizontal issues. The reality is still that even

Environment committee  There was some economic analysis, but it was not detailed. We couldn't find any social, environmental, and risk analysis linked to this. Climate change is not only about the environment, it's also about sustainable development; it's about our way of living, because it's linked

Richard Arseneault

Environment committee   there was a situation that needed to be better controlled, and they decided to pilot this.

Environment committee   are not coded the right way, and what is climate change and what is something else--sometimes it's not obvious. They call things different things. But we were still able to get to the amount of money spent on those programs.

Richard Arseneault

Environment committee  I'm trying to understand this--and I asked you this question during the last committee hearing. Who is in charge? What minister was in charge of climate change in Canada?

Environment committee  Do you think this tool would still be advantageous for Canada and that it should be taken into consideration in the future climate change mitigation plan?

Bernard BigrasBloc

Environment committee  Yes. The National Climate Change Secretariat produced a report in 2003, if I'm not mistaken, the latest one. Their function was one of coordination amongst the departments.

October 3rd, 2006Committee meeting

Richard Arseneault

Environment committee  Okay. My other question deals with pages 26 and 27 of Chapter 1 of your report. They deal with emissions trading. From what I understand, you do not consider this system a panacea, but instead an interesting climate change mitigation policy tool. Moreover, I am very happy

Bernard BigrasBloc

Environment committee  I don't know. The only thing I can say at this stage is that it will be interesting to get answers from the departments. On the basis of what we have seen on the climate change file, many times decisions were made without sound analyses and good analyses. So in this case

Environment committee   to what you were proposing. Would it be useful if every year the Minister of the Environment had to come up with a climate change plan that would report, as you have asked, on such things as what measures have been taken to meet our obligations under Kyoto concerning emission limits

October 3rd, 2006Committee meeting

John GodfreyLiberal

Environment committee  That's great to hear, because tomorrow night we're going to be voting on such an idea, Bill C-288, proposed by my friend, Pablo Rodriguez, to ensure we meet our global climate change obligations under Kyoto. If the bill passes, we'll be debating it here, but it's good to hear

Environment committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. My name is Mark Winfield. I'm the director of the Pembina Institute's environmental governance program. With me today is Dr. Matthew Bramley, the director of our climate change program. The definition of toxic substances under the Canadian Environmental

Mark Winfield

Environment committee  Mr. Chairman, I agree with my colleague. I think that in this particular instance, the Committee should focus more, and with more rigour than in the past, on the Estimates. For political reasons, as you may recall, Mr. Flaherty's last budget set aside some $2 billion for climate
