Senate committees studying oil tanker ban, impact assessment bills won’t travel to key areas, members say
This month, the Energy and Transport committees will hit the road to study bills C-48 and C-69, with a combined budget of $628,732.
Independent Senator Doug Black, left, and Conservative Senator Don Plett, middle, say the Transport Committee should be going to Alberta and Saskatchewan as part of its C-48 study. Independent Senator Paula Simons, right, says the Energy Committee’s travel on Bill C-69 should include a First Nation.
