May 1st, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  Thank you so much. I'm really pleased to be here today to discuss our spring 2018 reports, which were tabled in the House of Commons last Tuesday. Sharon Clark was the principal on the salmon aquaculture/salmon farming chapter, Andrew Hayes was the principal on the biodiversity

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  Yes. In our last audit we looked at both the 2020 and 2030 targets, and will continue to audit against the 2030 target. We found when we looked across the country that there were only three to four jurisdictions that actually had 2030 targets. As well, what I didn't say in my

Environment committee  Thank you very much, and you're most welcome.

Environment committee  One of the things you can do is something this committee can do, and I know it does already. We have a section called “Moving Forward”. It's a series of questions that all legislators can ask of their government. It's on page 25 of 26. These are questions that you can ask your go

Environment committee  Sure, of course.

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  As you know, Ms. Duncan, my role is to audit the government on its actions. You have clearly outlined some of the concerns we've raised. We've made recommendations to the government on all these issues. They have accepted our recommendations. The role I can play is to follow up

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  We talk about all the provinces in our report.

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  I believe we've answered that question by saying that we don't have that information. We know that the provinces and the federal government were having difficulty assigning how much greenhouse gas reduction would occur for each of their individual activities. I was going to say

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  Again, my role is to be an auditor, which is to audit against what the federal government says it's going to do. It's not my role to provide you with advice on what the federal government should do on this issue. What I can say as an auditor is that we look to the pan-Canadian

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  I have indicated publicly in the past that it was one of the best plans we've ever seen, and the reason I say this is that it was developed in collaboration with the provinces and territories. I'm sure Kim has audited all of our plans in the past, but the fact that it was done

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  I would say it's quite clear from the information the government has provided that even if everything in the pan-Canadian framework is implemented, there will still be a gap to achieving the target, yes.

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  Yes. I was going to say 50 to 60 megatonnes—in that zone, yes.

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  Now the federal government has indicated that it hasn't added in a series of other activities, but right now, from the information we receive, it's quite clear there's still a gap.

March 27th, 2018Committee meeting

Julie Gelfand

Environment committee  I'll start to answer that, and maybe Kim will add to it. What I can say is that a general comment we found across all of these plans was that governments were having a hard time figuring out how many greenhouse gas emissions action A would lead to and how many action B would lea
