Yes. I have spoken with my colleague Mr. Bachrach, and we're willing to support that, but we would like to add the wording “and be returned to the committee no later than June 20, 2022”.
A voice: June 20 is today.
Mr. Charlie Angus: It's “July 20”. I can't even read my own writing. I want it this afternoon, but since it's Monday, I'm going to give you a month. How's that?

Thank you so much, Chair.
It's an honour to be at the committee with my colleagues.
As a member of the opposition, I love documents. I can't get enough documents.
My concern with this is that it seems to be a huge expedition to turn over a whole whack of documents that may or may not be related in any way to the work of this committee, and within 30 calendar days. I just don't think it's reasonable. I think we could be more focused in our work, so I would just suggest that we put it to a vote.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you, Minister Wilkinson.
Thank you, Minister O'Regan. I think it's the first time that I've been able to speak with you at committee, so I will focus on you today.
We've been hearing loud and clear from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers that they believe Canada needs to focus on increasing oil and gas exports to global markets.
The other day at committee, my Liberal colleague, Mr. Sorbara, totally supported the CAPP position when he told them that “the world needs more of Canada's energy”.
Is that the policy of this government? To increase oil production for export...?

The CER, the Canada Energy Regulator, expects a 1.2 million barrel a day increase. Would that be something that you think your government supports?

NDP (ON)
No, no. I didn't say that.
You were the guy who made sure TMX went ahead. That's going to give us about another 800,000 barrels a day. My question is on whether your policy is that you are going to look to help CAPP and the oil sector meet the international markets for increased oil production in Canada.

But you don't have a cap. We haven't heard anything about a cap.

I don't know. Just help me. Every time I talk to the Liberal government, you guys are like “We're going to lower emissions of production.”
You do agree that if you burn oil anywhere in the world, you're adding carbon, right? Can we agree on that?

No, I think it's the heart of the matter. It is the heart of the matter.
Do you believe that if you sell 1.2 million barrels overseas and it is burned, that those emissions don't count to the planet?

Okay. That's good.
Earlier you began by saying we aren't transitioning, that we have to keep people in the industry, that the biggest problem we are facing right now is the shortage of energy workers in the oil sector. Then you mentioned that the orphan gas program was about a job—keeping people working.
I guess the question I'd ask is this. Given the climate crisis, your biggest priority was covering off the billions in damages caused by oil companies who walked away, and your focus is keeping people in the oil industry, so why are we talking about just transition? Why not just say, “Hey, we have to find more workers in the oil sector. We've got overseas markets. That's our focus”?
Why are we talking about just transition?

I don't have a magic wand, sir. What I want to know is, are you spinning us here? Are you serious?

The oil sector is the work of this country. I agree that it always has been—

—but we are dealing with a climate crisis, sir. The question is, if your biggest priority is getting more workers into the oil sector, where the emissions are going to go up, why are we wasting time talking about a so-called just transition?

You keep treating me like I'm some kind of child, sir.

Well, actually no; I didn't get to ask the question.
