Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, there was no blank cheque provided. There was a conversation about what we hoped to see as improvements to the bill, things that would strengthen the bill. In fact, we went into those conversations with many of the same concepts and ideas that the Bloc and the Gree

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, my recollection is that carbon budgets were ruled inadmissible at committee, because they fell outside the scope of the original legislation. Carbon budgets is a concept that we very much support. It is something that we brought to the government in our conversati

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her work. Her bill on environmental racism is a big step forward. I was really proud to speak to it and support it at the environment committee. If I had the answer to her question, I would share it with all. A lot of Canadians get di

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, as this is likely my last chance to speak in this session, I wanted to take a moment to thank my team in Ottawa: James Hammond, Justin Vossenberg, Zhenglin Liu and Nick Watts; and at home, in beautiful northwest B.C., Eric Holdjik, Adelle Jonker, Josh McLeod, Ben T

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I agree with almost everything the member has said. Given where we are at as a planet, given where we are at as a country, given the challenge in front of us and given all the things we have discussed this evening in this debate, where does she find hope?

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Mr. Speaker, I believe that all governments should be able to transparently explain to their citizens how the math around climate works and how their decisions can be rationalized in the context of a world that is moving toward a low-carbon future. The IEA has laid out the pathwa

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise and speak to Bill C-12, such an important piece of legislation we are considering this evening. It is a bill that would create a framework for real climate accountability in Canada at long last. We are debating this closure motion because we are

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Mr. Speaker, I know my colleague is familiar with the recent work by the International Energy Agency in modelling what a pathway to net zero by 2050 would look like. Notably, that modelling calls for an end to all new fossil fuel infrastructure this year. I wonder how he justifie

Government Business No. 9—Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to the comments by the member for Central Okanagan—Similkameen—Nicola, and I find his protestations somewhat disingenuous. I was at those committee meetings. I watched the member vote against the principle of climate accountability at second read

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I have a very simple question, and I would appreciate a clear, concise answer from the minister. If this motion is carried, and Bill C-12 eventually becomes law, who will ultimately be held accountable for Canada meeting its greenhouse gas emissions reduction targ

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, the minister has spoken many times about the importance of the climate crisis and the importance of taking action, yet here we are, just one day before the House rises for the summer, trying to get this important bill through the House. The government controls the

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, this bill is not the legislation we would have written. However, it is stronger than it was and we believe that it should be passed into law. I believe I just heard the minister state that Bill C-12 is best in class when it comes to international climate accounta

Budget Implementation Act, 2021, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, the one thing I did not hear the member mention in his speech was tax evasion and the need to ensure that the wealthiest Canadians pay their share. I was reading in the news today that since 2015, the CRA has only investigated 44 Canadians with net worth over $50 mil

Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act  Madam Speaker, I share the parliamentary secretary's view that we need to move expeditiously to get this bill into law, given the severity of the climate crisis. One of the key differences between Bill C-12 and the gold standard legislation out of the U.K. is that the latter use

Airline Industry  Mr. Speaker, we have just learned that the U.S. department of transport is fining Air Canada $25 million for failing to promptly refund passengers. By comparison, the Liberal government did nothing for over a year while Air Canada sat on billions of Canadians' hard-earned dollars
