Ms. Elizabeth May (Saanich—Gulf Islands, GP): Madam Speaker, to my hon. colleague from Saskatoon—Grasswood, I think we have seen something called a “war room” in the Alberta government and a very expensive report that looked into all of the Tides Foundation money in Alberta. It did not find any evidence of anything. It was all reported. It was never hidden. As for Leadnow, far as I know, all of its donors are Canadian. We have already put the rumours to bed.

If the member wants to find foreign-funded, large influence on energy policy in Alberta, look no further than the board of directors of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, where 80% of them are controlled by foreign interests.

Madam Speaker, I will say this, because I have watched quite a bit of the debate for the last two days. The member for Saanich—Gulf Islands has not made up her mind on this. I believe her. We are looking forward to seeing where her vote goes tomorrow night.

In western Canada, they are looking at every NDP and Green MP to see which way they vote tomorrow night, and they will not forget.
