Subcommittee on International Human Rights committee  I think at this juncture in time there have been no complaints that have been brought forward to the CORE. At this point we are looking forward, and we are looking for this process to be under way, and we don't know that the CORE is effective or isn't effective at this point. I

Lisa McDonald

Natural Resources committee  On the processing and manufacturing, I really don't think it's a good use of our limited time here for me to speak to that. I think I'm going to pass it over to Mr. London, if you're okay with that.

Lisa McDonald

Natural Resources committee  I think as has been evidenced in most of the conversation today, it's clear that Canada has the minerals. We know they're here. We've found the easy stuff, and now what's left are the more challenging things to find. They're at depth. They're more remote. Of course, with the cr

February 19th, 2021Committee meeting

Lisa McDonald

Natural Resources committee  You know, as I think was referenced in a couple of the presentations before mine, Canada is a vast country and our resources are spread out across the country, so it's not possible to sit here and cherry-pick and indicate a particular area. I think that, in and of itself, speaks

February 5th, 2020Committee meeting

Lisa McDonald

Finance committee  As mentioned earlier, we do agree that the future is in the north for Canada. We once again point to the challenges with the costs of operating in the north. It's not rocket science; it comes down to a lack of infrastructure, in terms of roads, from an energy perspective, from a

May 7th, 2019Committee meeting

Lisa McDonald

Finance committee  Sure. I can start, but then I'm going to pass it over to my colleague Brendan. He was at said meeting at the PDAC in Toronto, so he can speak to it further. Certainly from a high level I can comment that, as we noted, one significant cost barrier to operating in the north is the

May 7th, 2019Committee meeting

Lisa McDonald

Finance committee  Certainly, as noted in the remarks, this is something that we, as an organization, have advocated for since it was first implemented in 2000. As you're aware, it has been on a one-year renewal for that entire time. The five-year renewal really does provide that certainty for our
