Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, let us be very clear. The piece of legislation, Bill C-69, would encourage further investments because it would give investors greater certainty through short timelines, early engagement and one project meaning one review. The Conservatives can focus on rhetoric. We

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, we need Bill C-69 for industry to know before they start a project what the rules and regulations are, and to make sure that when they are investing, the rules are clear. The previous government would play games and have no record to show for it. In 2006, basically

Canada's Oil and Gas Sector  Madam Speaker, getting regulatory processes right is something the Canadian population expects and deserves. We are focused on to getting that right.

Canada's Oil and Gas Sector  Madam Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for her great question. The mining sector back home in Sudbury has indeed had its ups and downs.
