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.
