I will now table a second motion. I will read that as best as I can and give it to the clerk afterwards: “That, pursuant to Standing Order 108(2), the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food, recognizing that in order for the government to meet its Paris Climate Accord and investments in rural communities, and given the current fuel charge exemption under the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Act does not include all fuels used on farms, the committee undertake a comprehensive study of the cumulative impact of the carbon tax on farming operations in Canada. Therefore, the committee shall study ways to reduce energy costs and adopt new technology on farms and rural communities; that the study consist of at least eight meetings so the committee at a minimum hear from the Minister of Agriculture, department officials, producers, farm groups, commodity groups, provincial agriculture ministers and the Parliamentary Budget Officer; that the committee report its findings, including its recommendations, to the House; and that pursuant to Standing Order 109, the committee requests that the government table a comprehensive response to the report.”
Basically, we've taken out the agriculture minister's comments, and inserted “to meet our Paris climate accord targets” and “investments in rural communities”. We've taken out a bit about the assessment of current agricultural practices and traded that with “Therefore, the committee shall study ways to reduce energy costs and adopt new technology on farms and rural communities”. It again gets that carbon capture, storage, carbon credits and that type of thing.
