House of Commons Debates, 41st Parl, 2nd Sess, No 198 (22 April 2015) at 12856.
Mr. Speaker, each of us has the power to make changes that can have a significant impact on the environment, especially if we work together.
Earth Day is an ideal opportunity for Canadians to join together to preserve our planet.
New Democrats want to leave future generations a cleaner, healthier planet. The Conservatives, however, have failed Canadians when it comes to climate change.
After systematically dismantling Canada’s environmental protection laws, we were handed a Conservative budget that does not even mention the words “climate change.” Canadians deserve better.
The NDP is the only party with a credible plan to protect the environment and grow the economy, including with the climate change accountability act, which is strong, effective legislation that would be our offer to the global community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The greatest legacy we can offer future generations is a clean and healthy planet. Let us work together to make that happen.
