  • Spoke at a meeting of Environment

    Certainly I look forward, I hope in the very near future—and thank you for your consideration of Bill S-15, as I said at the beginning—to bringing any new proposed legislation before the committee for consideration.

    I can't give a yes or no. As you know, the government House leader determines, in consultation with cabinet, the composition of legislation. ... more

    Sure. You'll have an opportunity soon, I hope.

    We'll give you those numbers. There are three separate sets of numbers.

    Well, you could put the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Belgium into that area. There was a criticism not long ago comparing the amount of protected space in New Zealand to the amount of protected space in Canada. It's apples and oranges, the percentage of protected space. We are at about 10% of Canada's total land and sea area protected. We are, as I said, working on achieving Aichi targets for both our oceans and for land. I think Canadians can well be proud of the work. As minister, I take the credit and the blame on issues. Parks Canada's accomplishments really speak for themselves.

    Thank you, that's a good question. You're quite right. I've certainly learned how quickly scar tissue accumulates. ... more

    I thank you for your question. This is part of a larger conversation. But, to your point, you're quite correct. Visitation is down and there has been some reduction of on-site interpretative services at national historic sites, for example, in the off-seasons. ... more

    One of them is in the area known as the Serengeti of the Arctic, a very rich area in Lancaster Sound in Nunavut. We are working with the Government of Quebec on a feasibility study for the Îles de la Madeleine, with regard to a marine protected area there, and I think that work is progressing. As you know, the southern Strait of Georgia is one that was announced. It's still in the study and development process, but it's a large one, and there are others that have been designated. ... more

    As you know, Parks Canada has created four national marine protected areas to date. We're actively working on three additional areas.
