Ms. Libby Davies (Vancouver East, NDP): Mr. Speaker, It's a great pleasure to speak in strong support of the Kyoto Protocol. First I want to say that it is about time. This has taken so long.
I have to question why it has taken the government so many years of foot dragging under the guise of consultation that now after 12 years we're still waiting for the accord to be approved. Finally, this very important debate is happening, to meet our targets of a 6% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from the 1990 levels.
