Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, all that remains to be done now is the rubber stamp of the Investment Canada Act for one of Canada’s largest construction companies, Aecon, to be sold to a state-owned enterprise of the People’s Republic of China, the China Communications Construction Company, CCCI.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, it is tricky to do this, but I cannot ask my question until I express what I think is in all of our hearts.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, for more than 30 years, every federal government in this country and every prime minister regardless of political stripe has stood up to defend the Canadian interests in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I rise to address the question of climate change. We have just come through the COP 23 discussions in Bonn. Canada did very well.

Question Period Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, since my election in 2011, nothing was more painful than watching the destruction of our environmental laws in 2012.

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the offshore petroleum boards in Atlantic Canada, the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board and the Canada-Newfoundland & Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board, have legislated mandates to expand oil and gas activity in the offshore.
