Industry committee  I'm saying that when the process started, that was clearly absent. There's been some effort to address that.

Bob Masterson

Industry committee  It's one thing to say that there's a price on emissions and you have opportunities through process changes, product changes and energy efficiency to try to meet that. What's being proposed for the clean fuel standard is that the fuels themselves will have to have a carbon content

Industry committee  Through the chemicals management plan, which has been around since 1999 and really reinforced in 2006, there's broad agreement that the federal government's role is to assess new and existing substances, and identify those that pose unacceptable risks to human health and the envi

Industry committee  I think the first thing to note is where those investments are taking place, largely in Alberta. I think one of the reasons is that Alberta continues to have a reputation of not having a lot of problems with regulatory competitiveness. Ontario has historically had a very large

Bob Masterson

Industry committee  The so-called federal backstop is not as big a concern. I think we can get to the right place. The sectors like ours that had big exposure in Ontario will have to work very quickly after the change of policy in the government, and we're working very closely with officials. We wis

Industry committee  No. Our products are freely traded across provincial boundaries, so that's a non-issue. The key issue of regulatory overlap and duplication in large, complex industries, absolutely not.... There's been no science. Any positive progress that's been made in jurisdictions like Briti

Industry committee  That's not the issue. We have the Constitution with a division of powers. I think the challenge is that there's a lot of fuzziness, especially in key areas like environmental regulation and transportation regulation. Rather than just pretend that there isn't fuzziness and each le

February 7th, 2019Committee meeting

Bob Masterson

Industry committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair and committee members. I will be brief. Canada's $55-billion-a-year chemistry industry is a significant contributor to the economy. We're also a fast-growing industry. Many would not know it, but we added $10 billion in new chemistry investments in Canada, a

Finance committee  The opportunity and the reward, as I talked about, is getting our historic and, perhaps, even greater share of an immense quantity of investment into Canada. We've heard Minister Morneau and the advisory council on economic growth talk about Canada basically falling woefully shor

Bob Masterson

Finance committee  It's now at the stage where it is very important, because we've had, I believe, three years. If you think of the types of investments you've talked about in the chemistry sector, you're seven years from thinking about it; there is the final investment decision, building, commissi

Finance committee  Thank you, Chairman Easter. This evening we'd like to speak to this committee about the significant opportunities for investment and economic growth within Canada's chemistry sector, along with our thoughts on what budget 2018 can do to help ensure this opportunity is realized i

Transport committee  We have.

September 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Bob Masterson

Transport committee  I'd just add that it will depend, and that's why we've made the recommendations we have to remove some of the ambiguity. You need the data and information. In a case such as ours, you need it on a.... What happens with grain movement is irrelevant to chemical movements. We need

September 13th, 2017Committee meeting

Bob Masterson

Transport committee  In our case I think it's difficult to say what the impacts will be. What we have said is that there's a lot of ambiguity there. We believe that if we want to realize the intent we should remove that ambiguity and tighten things up as much as possible. At a minimum, if the commit
