I have only 40 seconds. Very quickly, can you confirm, then, that obviously the mineral and resource sector wealth within that region would also be a contributing factor as to why some of these impacts are being seen?

Absolutely, those minerals and other resources are a contributing factor.

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
First of all, I'm going to ask Ms. Cobden some questions. It was an excellent presentation from my favourite witness at these meetings.
Ms. Cobden, the first thing I have to ask you about is the customers of your members and where the actual products end up eventually. For the Canadian steel producers, can you tell me what percentage of their production actually goes into the extractive industries in Canada?

Thank you very much for the question. It's nice to see you again.
In fact, as I'm sure folks are aware, the energy sector is an incredibly important sector customer of ours. Yes, it's one of our top three. Markets for us are the energy sector, the automotive sector and the construction and infrastructure sector. All of these sectors are extremely important, so I do want to thank you for the opportunity to explain the importance of the role of the energy sector in this country to the Canadian steel producers.

Thanks, Ms. Cobden.
If I can continue with that, if you could envision an economy where we were doing less drilling for oil and gas than we are currently, or that we were last year, how much employment would that take out of your industry?

First of all, let's not talk about the drilling levels of today, because it's a very deep and difficult circumstance. There are a good number of Canadian steel producers that rely very heavily on the energy sector's prosperity. Their strength is our strength. Like it is with all of our markets, the better they do, the better off we are.
As well, the most important aspect of that is their commitment to using Canadian steel. That is a message that we continue to put out there, which is that the Canadian steel producers are a great partner for all of these customers. We're in it with them for the very long game, and we hope to see them come back to a very healthy position very soon.

Your point of view is interesting, Mr. Goodman.
I will now turn to Équiterre's representatives. I would really like to know if the current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in changes to the consultations on oil drilling, as I suppose that it must be very difficult holding consultations these days.

Thank you for the question.
Yes, indeed. In the spirit of Bill C-69, we have called for as much public participation as possible. We believe that's important. Given the current state of affairs, we do not have the conditions to ensure the broadest participation possible. Deadlines have been extended, but they will have to continue to be extended until we return to the state of affairs that existed before the emergency health response.

At present the process leading to the assessment has somewhat broken down. Am I right?

The process is not meeting the conditions for which it was created. We do not have the conditions to carry out the process and thus it has broken down.

In your opinion, would this drilling be harmful to the environment? If yes, considering that the process has become much less public, can we conclude that citizens are presently adversely affected by this drilling?

I am not an expert on drilling, but I can talk to you about consultations. Yes, I believe it is important to hear from all industry stakeholders, the experts on this issue, and also from local communities, which have legitimate concerns.

I will answer, but I would like to first answer the previous question.
I just want to point out that, according to the information I have, very few projects have been submitted to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada.

Madam Chair, the trouble in Canada's energy sector is not over. Companies have lost billions of dollars, and tens of thousands of workers are being laid off. Meanwhile, it has been 42 days since the finance minister promised action within hours or days, yet companies still cannot access the promised BDC financing.
When is the government going to stop dragging its feet and help our troubled energy sector?

Madam Chair, the energy sector is an essential part of the Canadian economy, contributing hundreds of thousands of well-paid jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenue. That is why our government strongly supports the sector, and it's one reason why we were very proud to announce more than $1.7 billion in support to clean up orphaned wells. That support is going to put thousands of workers in Alberta and Saskatchewan back to work, and that is a good thing.
