Nathan asks why the government is cutting funding for green energy

Mr. Nathan Cullen (Skeena—Bulkley Valley, NDP): Mr. Speaker, the minister is entitled to his opinion but not his own facts.
Under the Conservatives, greenhouse gases are amongst the highest in the world while spending on green energy solutions have been slashed. Last year the minister killed off the popular home retrofit program and scrapped support for renewable heat and green energy. Yesterday an additional $600 million was eliminated.
Meanwhile, the minister really took one for the team, cutting a full 1% from his limo budget. Is the only Conservative plan to fight climate change having the minister walk a little more?
