Finance committee  I think, to make a long story short, there is tremendous potential, and while infrastructure is a barrier, it's most certainly not the only one. I think one of the barriers is giving northerners a greater level of autonomy to make decisions on what they want for their own future

Finance committee  I'm only aware of one SMR globally that is currently deployed. It's in northern Russia. It's on a barge floating on the water. It has a cable that moves to an industrial facility. Other than that, this is very much a cutting-edge, directional technological movement at this time

Finance committee  Yes, we were on the panel together, Kim. We used to be in a NIMBY space and then that moved to BANANA: build absolutely nothing anywhere near anything. MAC underscores again, unequivocally, we are agnostic about fuel type. We do not discriminate on the products extracted from th

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I think I'll answer that question a little differently. I am going to talk about one of the reasons I don't think the current design of the Canada Infrastructure Bank is going to work for the north.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  There are a number of opportunities. Agnico is a senior, mature company with a lot of operations. TMAC has a single gold mine operation that just began production last year. It is quite fortunate that it's proximate to tidewater. If it were not the case, they might not be operati

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  What can we do to turn other companies, small companies, into the next generation of Agnico Eagles?
