The QP clip: Oliver and Kent defend Conservative record

The exchange you can’t miss from this afternoon’s Question Period

by

 

This afternoon, a lineup of NDP MPs—Jamie Nicholls, Claude Gravelle, Peter Julian, and Megan Leslie—went after Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver for two reasons: his support for changes to the public consultation process that accompanies applications for energy projects; and recent comments he made, and then backed away from, about the science behind anthropogenic climate change.

Oliver responded to Nicholls and Gravelle, and reaffirmed support for the consultation process. Environment Minister Peter Kent addressed Julian and Leslie, and reaffirmed the government’s record on fighting climate change.
