Elizabeth May calls on the government to reject the Teck Frontier mine

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister.
We are in, unquestionably, a situation of climate emergency globally. Canada participated at COP25 in Madrid, and we all know that this year every country within the Paris agreement has to improve our target. We know we are not yet on a track to hit the weak Harper target that we still have.
Could the Prime Minister assure the House that his cabinet will not accept new greenhouse gases in the millions and millions of tonnes through the giant Teck Frontier mine, which must be turned down?
