Environment committee  That will require a reduction of the carbon intensity of fuels in Canada over a period of about a decade, and it will apply to all fuels essentially—liquid, solid and gaseous fuels. The goal of the regulation will be to reduce emissions by about 30 megatonnes by 2030. We plan to

Environment committee  Maybe I'll elaborate a little bit just to emphasize that in this process, we're not privileging the AFN as the spokespeople for all indigenous knowledge holders. We're really asking them to be conveners as a way to reach out to indigenous elders, to your point that there are a ra

Environment committee  I can give you a brief update, but I'll start with the minister's response, which was that the committee identified a number of directional improvements that could be made to the implementation of the act and the department is committed to undertaking as many of those as possible

Environment committee  The government committed to return all money raised through the federal carbon price back to the jurisdiction of origin. We do that in two ways.

John Moffet

Environment committee  It's absolutely important for all households, all individuals, to file returns.

John Moffet

Environment committee  Perhaps I can respond. This funding is part of a full suite of funding that the government has provided as accommodation measures for indigenous communities directly or indirectly affected by the Trans Mountain pipeline.

John Moffet

Environment committee  I don't think I can say that any one community will receive an equal amount to others, but the program is targeting all affected communities regardless of any position they took during the consultations. It's actually primarily not a program for dispensing money directly to a com

Environment committee  Ultimately, a lot of it will, for capacity building, but some of it will also be dedicated to doing environmental studies on issues identified by indigenous communities.

March 12th, 2020Committee meeting

John Moffet

Environment committee  Again, that's all part of the accommodation measures that were developed under the TMX decision. I think it's primarily a vagary of the way government budgets are dispensed.
