In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Energy, the Environment and Natural Resources - June 22, 2015


Parks Canada officials Alan Latourelle (chief executive officer), Rob Prosper (vice-president of protected areas establishment and conservations) and Kevin McNamee (director of parks establishment), as well as Éric Hébert-Daly (executive director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society), discuss Bills C-61 and C-72.
C-61 would establish the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area. The proposed area comprises more than 10,000 square kilometres of the lake, making it one of the largest freshwater marine protected areas in the world. C-72 would establish the Qausuittuq National Park in Nunavut. Qausuittuq would be Canada’s 45th national park.
The committee then turns its attention to Bill C-64, An Act to amend the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Resources Accord Implementation Act. The legislation would re-establish a moratorium on oil and gas activity in Georges Bank. Terence Hubbard and Samuel Millar, who are both senior officials from Natural Resources Canada's energy sector, testify during this portion of the meeting.
Senators then conduct their clause-by-clause consideration of all three bills after hearing from the witnesses. (June 22, 2015)
