Public Accounts committee  Our objective is to draw from what the consultation process provides and to have legislation that will reflect the interests that best serve Canada. That will happen in due course. It is something we are treating as a priority.

John Hannaford

Public Accounts committee  As I mentioned in one of my earlier comments, we highlighted some of the outcomes of the funding provided through colleagues in the regional development agencies. Perhaps I will turn to them for more detailed information about some of those projects. Mr. McGuire—

June 7th, 2022Committee meeting

John Hannaford

Public Accounts committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. The commitment is to phase out coal-generated electricity by 2030. We are working with each of the provinces, through a number of different tracks, in order to achieve that objective. Perhaps I can turn to my colleague Mr. McGuire for a very quick description of how some of these projects are contributing to our overall objective, but I will conclude my remark in the interest of time.

John Hannaford

Public Accounts committee  I'll turn to my colleague, Mr. Brown, on some of the details, but we certainly were very grateful for the advice that was provided by the task force and have taken note of the 10 recommendations that were contained in that. The legislation is intended as a series of principles that will guide our policy development with respect to just transition and, potentially, the creation of an advisory body.

Public Accounts committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair. It will be in the fall.

Natural Resources committee  I'm sorry. I don't have those numbers handy, but we could provide that to you in writing.

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  Thanks, Mr. Chair. We certainly see huge opportunities to advance economic reconciliation through natural resources. It's already a critical aspect of the economic lives of an awful lot of indigenous peoples across the country. For that reason, our policies are often framed with a view to indigenous reconciliation.

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  Thanks, Mr. Chair. To take a step back, nuclear is very likely to be a pretty critical aspect of our energy mix as we are looking at an increase of demands on our electrical grid, perhaps two to three times the current demands by 2050. The government has taken a series of steps to support the development of this technology.

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  I'm sorry, but to be clear, is this specifically with respect to isotopes or with respect to nuclear technology in general?

December 1st, 2022Committee meeting

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  The investment we just made in the Darlington plant does put us in a leadership role internationally. There are a number of different international players who are focusing on this technology as one with real potential, but we have real assets strategically with respect to nuclear generally and with respect to this technology development.

December 1st, 2022Committee meeting

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  Canada has had a significant role with respect to the provisions of isotopes internationally. Through a variety of different operations, we have provided isotopes into the global demand. I will maybe turn to my colleague, Debbie Scharf, just on any specifics she wishes to flag with respect to isotopes.

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  I'll ask my colleague to respond.

December 1st, 2022Committee meeting

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  I would say that that's very much the intention of the regional table approach that the minister described in his comments. It's significantly because of the scale of the challenge that we are facing. In order for us to meet the challenges of the climate crisis, the challenges that are posed by some of our geopolitical realities, concerted effort between the federal government and the provinces is very important, and we have a real opportunity right now.

December 1st, 2022Committee meeting

John Hannaford

Natural Resources committee  I think the minister said that these are federal and provincial tables. They will vary from province to province, but the intention is to draw on the breadth of the communities that are at issue and the jurisdictions that are at issue. That will absolutely include labour and absolutely include indigenous communities, the private sector and other experts.
