Thank you.
Minister, as you know, last year our committee prepared and published a report on heritage conservation. In that report we had a specific recommendation, recommendation 10, that dealt with the Parks Canada national cost-sharing program. The recommendation, in case you don't remember it, said that the federal government should restore the funding level for the cost-sharing program for heritage places to a minimum of $10 million per year. This program, which I had familiarity with, provided excellent support to owners and lessees of national historic sites and heritage facilities not owned by the federal government.
We heard from witnesses who talked about how oversubscribed this program is, and in the previous budgets, our government had increased the budget from $1 million to $10 million. It has reverted down to $1 million in this budget, so I'd like to know your thoughts on what role you see the federal government playing in the support and preservation of all of Canada's heritage moving forward.
Could you further comment on what that role is and how it's supported by the budget that we have before us today?

Thank you very much, and I really want to thank you for all your work advocating and practically working to protect national historic sites and heritage facilities. I'm very committed to protecting built heritage in Canada. We've made substantial investments in our national historic sites.
With respect to cost sharing for non-federally owned heritage sites, the grant program has moved back to its previous A-base funding level in this fiscal year, but I'm certainly open to considering the committee's recommendation to move this grant to a permanent level of $10 million a year, going ahead.

Great. Thank you.
Maybe I will give your parliamentary secretary a minute to provide comment on how budget 2018 will transform the way Canada protects species at risk.

The resources being provided under the budget will enable us to be more effective partners with the provinces and territories from a financial perspective in terms of creating protected areas, which obviously is intimately linked to species-at-risk protection and will provide us with the internal resources we need to ensure that we are actually focusing on what is a critical issue from a biodiversity perspective for Canada and for the world.

Thank you, Madam Chair.
Minister, it seems like you really don’t want to be here this morning and thank you very much for that super classy opening.

I'm very happy to be here. As I say, this is my third time in 12 weeks. I think you do good work and it's important to report—

Answer the question, please. How many deaths are there in Canada each year due to pollution?
View Catherine McKenna Profile
Lib. (ON)
We know that pollution worldwide accounts for over one million deaths. That's why doing things such as phasing out coal is so important.

On a point of order, Madam Chair, if the member is going to ask a question, then please allow the minister to answer that question.

That's not really a point of order.
An hon member: She answered the question.
