Mr. Alan Tonks (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of the Environment, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister made it very clear when $1 billion in budget 2003 was allocated for our strategies to reduce greenhouse gases consistent with our Kyoto commitments.
These bilateral initiatives with the provinces as partners will be made operational through memorandums of understanding.
I am pleased to report to the House that the minister is in Iqaluit, Nunavut, signing a bilateral protocol with the territory, and this is the first of many to come.
