Environment committee  Under any of these projects, when a project is done—for example, when they scoped out what is done across Canada or what is done around the world—it's submitted as a document. Eventually that will be made public and put on the CCME web page. I can certainly point you in the direc

Environment committee  On that particular file, there are two things done. Number one, there was an implementation framework for climate change adaptation planning. That was done, and my understanding is that it is to be made public very soon. I believe it's in translation now. That particular group—

Environment committee  Sure. I'll give you just a little bit of further detail on CCME in general. There are three senior groups. Of course, there's the Council of Ministers, the deputy ministers' committee, and the environmental planning and protection committee. Although those groups may only meet

Environment committee  I would really like to help on that. I guess what I would say is that this particular item is handled by a group of experts who deal with flood and drought. I can only give you the high level right now. There is a very nice document submitted to CCME and it will be on the web pag

Environment committee  Not being the expert on that particular topic, I can just tell you what I know about how it started. It started approximately three to four years ago as an idea. I believe it came specifically from folks in Manitoba who, of course, are very concerned about nutrients. It was pro

Don Fox

Environment committee  Right now the group that is dealing with flood and drought, climate change, and water security is scoping out what can be done in the future. I do know that flood and drought are key items that folks are interested in all across Canada. There is concern that things are going to

Environment committee  I'm not really the person to have that discussion with. I can sort of give you generalities. Right now there's even debate as to whether the word “moratorium” is appropriate. But certainly there's a thought that we need to reflect on some items before this industry goes full stea

Environment committee  There is an association there, and there was some work going on there, but there's specific work to New Brunswick as well.

Don Fox

Environment committee  The only thing I can leave you with is from a science perspective, from an engineering perspective. Anything that we could develop at the water management committee that could be used by regulatory folks, we're happy to go into that discussion, put together the team, and actually

Don Fox

Environment committee  I would have to think a little bit further on how to improve the Canada Water Act. I would have to reflect on that a little bit, but I would say that currently the act does allow for this cooperative approach. My read of the Canada Water Act is that it actually pushes and promote

May 14th, 2015Committee meeting

Don Fox

Environment committee  Absolutely, yes. We brainstorm through the year about what the national priorities are and what projects we can work on. For example, oil sands development, fracking, or some specific type of mining are all issues that perhaps need something developed. For example, we have looked

Environment committee  In terms of the CCME water management committee, we don't analyze waters across Canada. We don't do that, but we develop the tools that folks can use. The water quality index is used in the annual report. It is used through the Canada Water Act. For New Brunswick, we do particip

Environment committee  I have been associated with the CCME water work for approximately the last 13 years. The knowledge I have about when it started is that it would have been around 1987, I believe, in the first round of what we call the CCME binders, the two-volume binders that were printed and sol
