In Committee from the Senate of Canada

Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources – December 2, 2014

Julie Gelfand, the federal environment and sustainable development commissioner, discusses her first report to Parliament, which was tabled on October 7th . Despite some initiatives and progress in certain areas, her report found that the federal government does not have answers to many questions that impact the future of sustainable development in Canada. Her report touched on areas such as the government’s approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the monitoring of oil sands and marine navigation in the Arctic. Kimberley Leach and Bruce Sloan, the principals who were responsible for the audits, also respond to questions. (December 2, 2014)
