Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. We are in, unquestionably, a situation of climate emergency globally.

Mr. Speaker, this is a grief that particularly falls on the Iranian Canadian community, but it is a shared grief. We grieve as one country. As the other party leaders in this place have already said, this cut right to our hearts. I do not think there is a single member of the Iranian Canadian ...
