Liberals light on details for green innovation spending, opposition wants answers

Critics say there are Canadian innovators ‘lining up’ for federal support but need to see a more detailed, consistent spending plan from the government

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna was light on details when asked about how the government intends to spend a collective $300-million a year on clean technology and natural resource innovation. 'I won’t speculate on the contents of the budget, but I can confirm that the government is committed to helping our natural resource sector grow more sustainably, especially by fostering innovation in the sector,' she said.The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
