At 11:00 a.m., pursuant to Standing Order 30(6), the House proceeded to the consideration of Private Members' Business.

The order was read for the consideration at report stage of Bill C-237, An Act to establish a national framework for diabetes, as reported by the Standing Committee on Health with an amendment.

Ms. Sidhu (Brampton South), seconded by Mr. Gerretsen (Kingston and the Islands), moved, — That the bill, as amended, be concurred in at report stage.

Accordingly, the bill, as amended, was concurred in at report stage.

Pursuant to Standing Order 76.1(11), Ms. Sidhu (Brampton South), seconded by Mr. Gerretsen (Kingston and the Islands), moved, — That the bill be now read a third time and do pass.

Government Orders

The House resumed consideration of the motion of Mr. Wilkinson (Minister of Environment and Climate Change), seconded by Mr. Guilbeault (Minister of Canadian Heritage), — That Bill C-12, An Act respecting transparency and accountability in Canada's efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, be now read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development;

And of the amendment of Mr. Deltell (Louis-Saint-Laurent), seconded by Mr. Richards (Banff—Airdrie), — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word "That" and substituting the following:

"the House decline to give second reading to Bill C-12, An Act respecting transparency and accountability in Canada's efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, since the bill fails to:
(a) implement a plan that recognizes climate change is real and addresses the significant problem it represents, while also ensuring that economic development and job growth can flourish all across Canada; and
(b) address the fact that, after committing to working with Parliament on the makeup of the advisory group, the government appointed climate activists whose influence, if acted upon, would lead to the destruction of the oil and gas sector, disproportionally threaten certain regions of the country and their essential industries, and weaken national unity.".

The debate continued.
