You said that, at Transport Canada, you assessed risk based on the necessary inspectors or auditors according to the changes.
Do you think the increase in the transportation of dangerous goods—more specifically oil—means that Transport Canada needs more inspectors or a bigger budget?

Thank you, Ms. Kinney.
I have used up my time. I now give the floor to Mr. Watson, for five minutes.

Okay. Thank you very much, Mr. Watson.
We still have a bit of time before the end of this meeting, so maybe we will have a short question from Mr. Sullivan, then another short question from the Conservatives, if we have time.
So a very short question.

Sorry, Mr. Sullivan, you don't have time.
Mr. Komarnicki, the last question.

Thank you very much, Mr. Komarnicki.
I'd like to thank the officials from Transport Canada for coming here to testify and to give us information, and also for the work that they have been doing. Thank you very much.
We will suspend.

Thank you, witnesses. It's very interesting.
Just to follow up, have your boards turned down any contributions in excess of $100,000?

The biggest issue right now with corporations in resource development is social licence. That's a factor that has built up over the last number of years into what it is today and will certainly increase in importance going forward. Is this something your organizations are very aware of?
When you're dealing with an area, say with the Earth Rangers in Cold Lake, where there is lots of opposition to potential development and companies absolutely require social licence, is there a sense when you're working with schools there that you're avoiding prejudicing the social licence aspect of the relationship?

I have one last question.
You're charitable organizations, so do all of these contributions from corporations count as charitable donations?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I would like to go back to Mr. McLean.
In my riding of Drummond, the CRECQ, the Conseil régional de l’environnement du Centre-du-Québec, the regional environmental council, received funds from the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk for two endangered species, the Northern spring salamander and the wood turtle.
For some years now we have observed that there are some big issues with the Endangered Species Act. The government had to go to court for the sage grouse and the orca in British Colombia. Currently it is also in court for the striped chorus frog in Quebec. This problem is very serious and that is why the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk is so important; we have benefited from it at various times in Drummondville and in the Centre-du-Québec region.
Currently, is the Habitat Stewardship Program an annual program? Can people submit a three-year project, or something similar?
I think that would have to be renewed every year. Is that the case?

If I understand correctly, a project funded through the Habitat Stewardship Program can be subsidized for three years. Is that correct?
I think that normally it is one year at a time. You have to obtain a renewal for a second year, and so on.

Fine.
I saw on the Environment Canada website that there had been a change in 2014-2015. I am still talking about the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk. That is the one we turned to in Drummond. My fellow citizens are really concerned, among other things, by the situation of the wood turtle which is an endangered species.
This is what the website says:
Starting in 2014-2015, the Prevention Stream focuses on the very same results as the Species at Risk Stream, but with a focus on species of interest beyond those listed under Schedule 1 of SARA.
So there has been a change in the prevention aspect. Can you explain why this change was made for 2014-2015?

As everyone knows, the Habitat Stewardship Program is a shared-cost program. Every dollar from the Stewardship Program must be matched with a dollar from private funds or organizations. The study we are doing currently is precisely on that.
Mr. McLean talked about this program in the beginning of his presentation. I am asking him questions because the community in my riding of Drummond participates in the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk, and there have been changes. In what way are these changes important? Are they going to help the companies, enterprises and organizations in Drummond to use that program?
I will repeat my question: what is the explanation behind the changes made to the Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk for 2014-2015?

I'd like to begin, Justice Kirby, if I may, not only by commending you for your testimony today and your comprehensive report, but really also for a lifetime of commitment to human rights and the rule of law.
In your commission's final report, in which you document the wide array of crimes against humanity, you conclude by saying that the gravity, scale, and nature of these violations reveal a state that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world.
Now this is, as you pointed out clearly, an R2P situation, but if it is an R2P situation, the question arises how can the international community now on the 10th anniversary of R2P best give expression to this imperative in the case of North Korea.
Of course, a reference by the UN Security Council to the ICC would be the best example, and it's always possible this may happen, but I'm not unmindful of the fact that with regard to Syria we were prevented from invoking the R2P there because China and Russia again and again exercised their veto.
My question is what can the international community do either to persuade China and Russia, or if that does not work, other initiatives that we might take, and in particular how may Canadian parliamentarians assist in this regard?
