Statement made on 08 June 2011 by Senator Grant Mitchell
Hon. Grant Mitchell:
Honourable senators, under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Canada has an obligation to report each year on greenhouse gas emissions from our various industrial sectors. In fact, traditionally our government has reported, sector by sector, on emissions. However, this year, interestingly, the government failed to report on significant increases in greenhouse gas emissions in the oil sands sector. Did this government mislead the UN — in fact, mislead the world — on purpose, or was this just an unfortunate oversight?
