Environment committee   the department whether Environment and Climate Change is looking at 2026 as a negotiable date.

April 28th, 2022Committee meeting

Lloyd LongfieldLiberal

Environment committee  As you know, a lot of problems arise when we start to turn the strategy into concrete measures. I'll repeat: the department has to develop realistic plans. It's fine to be optimistic, because we have to be. Climate change is a reality that we may not be able to change, but we

Jerry V. DeMarco

Environment committee  I entirely agree with that. Reading your report, I find it hard to weed through the data and identify what is credible and what isn't. You called the Department of Environment and Climate Change unrealistic in terms of its ability to model the plans. How is it possible to say

Monique PauzéBloc

Environment committee  I don't know. You can ask the department representatives. We evaluated its performance, and you have provided a good summary. That's all I can say. We have often said that we had to be realistic. It says in the appendix to our November report on climate change that before I

Environment committee  I'm very curious about the whole modelling issue that you raised in your report. Natural Resources Canada had a number based on their modelling. Environment and Climate Change Canada had, obviously, a different model and I think were more conservative in their estimates

Terry DuguidLiberal

Environment committee  Thank you, Commissioner. Before starting the first round of questions, I would like to welcome our colleague Wilson Miao, who is with us this morning. I would like to let committee members know that the plan was for the Minister of Environment and Climate Change to appear

Environment committee   I think the oil and gas issue is fundamental, because it's the big issue that no one is talking about in terms of addressing climate change. As long as we continue to support this industry directly and indirectly, we're investing in the issue rather than in solutions. As a result

Environment committee  , because they are the bearers of the climate change issue. We must therefore find ways to curb their production. Subsidies artificially bring down the costs associated with this sector of activity. If the externalities generated by the oil and gas sector in Canada were taken

Environment committee   eight billion people because of reliable and affordable energy, largely from fossil fuels. Solving climate change by 2050 is not as simple as eliminating fossil fuels and may be self-defeating. The objective should not be to eliminate fossil fuels. The objective should

April 26th, 2022Committee meeting

Craig Golinowski

Environment committee  I think that Canada, as a rich, highly developed country and a country that bears a disproportionate responsibility for having contributed to climate change, owes the world an obligation of leadership, which is expressly set out in article 4.4 of the Paris Agreement, which we

April 26th, 2022Committee meeting

Dr. Jason MacLean

Environment committee  I would respond by saying that's it plainly not true. The over-400 signatories of the letter, me included, are all experts in a variety of aspects when it comes to climate change research, whether it's climate science or climate policy or energy modelling. There's just

Environment committee   meet the challenge of global warming. Growing Canadian exports, contributing to Canada's economy and responding to the crisis of climate change—this is our business landscape today, and it has been evolving dramatically in recent years. As such, EDC's approach to oil and gas has

April 26th, 2022Committee meeting

Mairead Lavery

Environment committee  Okay. I have another question for you. You wrote in a 2020 article, “Climate change needs to be addressed responsibly, but not presented as some monumental crisis justifying the abandonment of the economic order.” Can you expand on what you meant by this? Do you believe

April 5th, 2022Committee meeting

Dan MazierConservative

Environment committee  Yes. I think a lot of attention is being paid to fossil fuels and to technologies that are not necessarily market-ready, and I find that concerning. I have actually reviewed the new climate change plan that came out after I submitted my briefing, and the spending is up by about

Dr. Christina Hoicka

Environment committee   are Heather Miller and Sylvie Marchand, who are responsible for a number of reports on this subject. In 2017 and 2019 we examined whether Finance Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada supported decision-making in order to meet Canada's commitment to phase out inefficient fossil
