"It's time for a brand new approach to the environment," she told the committee.
"This approach is going to address the real priorities of Canadians in a tangible and accountable way."
She was short on details of what the "approach" will include, saying the fine points will be revealed "very soon."
"Our approach will deliver clean air to Canadians to protect their health while also making genuine progress on reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as other contaminants that are harmful to our health," Ambrose said.
There was a plan, remember the Tory bluebook that touted the "Made in Canada Plan", but okay it's an approach now. All we know of the approach to date- there will be a substantial period of talks aimed a clarifying the approach. Apparently, we will be approaching 2012 before we know where the approach is headed. Ambrose has approached industry to "work together" on emissions. The fact Buzz Hargrove left the auto industry meeting and said he "felt alot better" after learning of the approach, speaks to the empty rhetoric. Why did Ambrose bother showing up to committee if she wasn't prepared to offer anything concrete? All we are approaching is absurdity.
