"The oil and gas sector is needed for years to come and we're the most environmentally-friendly resource extractor on the planet", Hoback said, arguing Trudeau was "hanging the sector out to dry for an ideological bent". "Conservatives have Canadians' backs", Morrison said.
It's expected that vote will happen in early October.
That expansive agenda includes new investments and initiatives to help the country recover from the coronavirus pandemic, with vows to support "people and businesses through this crisis as long as it lasts, whatever it takes".
"This isn't a change in direction, this isn't creative thinking, this isn't a plan for the future of our country".
The Conservatives and the Bloc have already signaled that they won't support the throne speech, leaving it up to the NDP to either vote with the Liberals or join the other opposition parties, defeat the government on a confidence motion and send Canadians to the polls.
With the speech mainly only mentioning the energy sector in the frame of cleantech and a reduction of emissions - including a goal of adding a million jobs largely through that endeavour -, Kenney responded with a rebuke that the oil and gas industry has been hindered enough and they can not take it anymore.
"We were already struggling, especially in Western Canada, before this pandemic and we've been losing hundreds of thousands of jobs". Payette stated that the Government intends on making Canada "a world leader in clean technology" and will be "the most competitive jurisdiction in the world for clean technology companies".
But while the Conservatives were critical of the speech, Michael Johnston, chair of the Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound Federal Liberal Association, said most everything announced in the Throne Speech is to support families and the middle class, and to help Canadians, something the Conservatives should be in favour of. Blanchet stood up for Quebec, and Singh promised to fight the good fight for Canadians forgotten by the Liberals.
The Canadian Emergency Response Benefit will be replaced with a "transitional" Canadian Recovery Benefit through the Employment Insurance system, while the emergency wage subsidy is to be extended through to next summer.
Along with supporting businesses and woman, Trudeau outlined support for people with disabilities by introducing a Canada Disability Benefit, modelled after Guaranteed Income Support for Seniors.
The new benefits will also apply to those who are forced to take time off work because they are ill, forced to self-isolate or stay home to care for a dependent who is ill or in isolation. "It's clear neither the federal or provincial government has any plan for bringing Alberta out of recession and into recovery". The feds also plan to put into legislation the goal of having net-zero emissions by 2050. "I do not see this speech as a sign of progress, just empty words", Price said.
Isabelle Turcotte, director of federal policy at the Pembina Institute, said the government had demonstrated that it saw protecting people's health, building a resilient economy, and taking strong action on climate change "as different pieces of the same puzzle".
