Question Periond – Environment Canada

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise today with a genuine concern and I hope the Prime Minister can allay my fears.
I have heard from credible sources within the government that there is a proposal to eliminate Environment Canada by merging it with Natural Resources Canada.

If it had not been from credible sources, I would not be putting this question to him. I would like assurances that no such plan is under consideration.

Right Hon. Stephen Harper: Mr. Speaker, I would be delighted to meet any of these credible sources to correct any misinformation they may be giving the hon. member.
