Emergency Debate on Paris Aggreement on Climate Change
"Thank you, Madam Speaker. I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to speak to this motion urging “the government to reject co-operation with the federal government in the imposition of the Paris agreement on climate change.” I find the wording very interesting. I don’t think that this is a situation of imposition so much as an agreement. The Paris accord was actually ratified by Canada on October 5, 2016, so I’m a little confused as to why this would be an emergency right now. We’ve had a couple of years to talk about it."
