From minutes 32:25 to 38:40 CTV’s Mercedes Stephenson:
“She may get only one question in question period but the Green Party of Canada - Parti vert du Canada is still a force to be reckoned with. Up next on Power Play, Elizabeth May is here with her concerns for this parliament sitting…”

- Climate issue – Both internal and external pressures will be on Canada to deliver on the CoP21 commitment
- Pipelines – Regulatory reform is essential. We need to fix the tarnished National Energy Board and Environmental Assessment process
