Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, today, we learned in a study by Équiterre that pipeline management in this country is all over the map. In 2017, there was a 41% increase in incidents, spills, leaks, and issues. The so-called automated detection systems do not detect even half of what happens. What

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, according to a study by Cambridge University, a foreseeable and inevitable drop in global demand for oil will burst the carbon bubble. This will happen between 2030 and 2050. In one fell swoop, oil infrastructure will become worthless. So, what did the Prime Ministe

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. The bill we are currently rushing through at third reading has many flaws. The process for determining which projects will be reviewed, and the criteria upon which they will be reviewed, is arbitrary and unclear. There are also m

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Essex for her very good question. I find it interesting that she is raising the issue of the changes to navigable waters because, once again, the Liberals wanted to muddy the waters, if you will pardon the pun. The debate on the assessment

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very important question. There is a geothermal project in an alley in Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie. I support that excellent project. I just want to say that $4.5 billion to buy an old pipeline is not a good investment. It is the public th

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her comment. I have two things to say in response to her remarks. I know she represents a riding on the south shore of Montreal. We had quite the debate in Quebec over the past few years about the energy east pipeline. We saw the current Lib

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for his concern for the member for Edmonton Strathcona. She accomplished a massive amount of work.

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, again, I am pleased to rise to speak to Bill C-69 on a new impact assessment and environmental assessment process. I must begin by saying a few words about the approach to adopting this new process. Cloaked in righteousness, the Liberal government set to defending d

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech, his energy, and his passion. I also really liked that he explained all the details of the amendments.

Impact Assessment Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank the minister for her speech. Sometimes I have trouble following the Liberals' logic. The minister just reminded us that previous Conservative governments gutted the environmental assessment process, that they broke the trust of Canadians, and that they remove

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, saying that the environment and the economy go hand in hand while buying a pipeline is like saying that exercise and good nutrition are important while stuffing oneself with donuts and cake. Why are the Liberals refusing to invest in a fair energy transition? The co

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her kind words and the principles she touched on. I just wish her government's actions were consistent with those principles. I have a specific question for her. In its 2015 platform, the Liberal government made a clear commitment to ending

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank the parliamentary secretary for his question. I hope the Liberal Party members will support this motion. I do not see why they would not. Public transit certainly is very important. I am just asking the government to restore the tax credit for people who buy

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question. I know his party really cares about this issue, a topic that he raises regularly.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Edmonton Strathcona for her highly relevant question.
