Environment committee  Can I also add that when we're doing a preparedness audit right now, we ask whether the Government of Canada is prepared to implement the sustainable development goals. We're doing this according to methodology that's being used by auditors general from around the world. One of t

Environment committee  I would argue that it's going to be difficult to apply many of the principles. As I already indicated in the case of the polluter pay principle, which is a principle that those who degrade the environment should pay for it, am I really going to look for departments to...? Are the

Questions they could ask themselves are: “How are our decisions, programs, and assets delivering on our international commitments; how are we applyi

Environment committee  If Canada is going to achieve the sustainable development goals that it has agreed to achieve, departments have to change a little in the way they think about things. They need to start thinking about things from the three angles: social, economic, and environmental. That has a h

Environment committee  They would apply the strategic environmental assessment cabinet directive to all their decisions. That would be number one, a very easy one. It's already there. It's something that, according to Ms. Duncan, is enforceable, and they are not doing it, which means that when a decisi

Environment committee  It would help if at least there's a provision saying, “We'd like you to report on international commitments. What have you done on those?” I haven't even thought about all the elements of standardization. What we have thought about is what we would do with 90 departments report
