Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, through you, I address my question to the member for Skeena—Bulkley Valley. This is my first chance to take the floor in the debate tonight.

Elizabeth May I want to start by thanking Darren and other Liberal members of the committee who agreed to allow me to put a question to the minister. I thank both ministers for being here.
