On Endangered Species Day, Elizabeth asks government to protect the Southern Mountain Caribou

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Environment. We are part of a very important agreement—and full credit to the federal government and the government of B.C.—as well as an indigenous partnership to protect an iconic species, the southern mountain caribou.

I am afraid. I am hearing reports that the consultations of the B.C. government seem to be stirring up opposition to protecting the species instead of solidifying what is a groundbreaking model agreement.

I wonder if the federal government is concerned, as I am, that we not let this deal get unstuck.
