October 7, 2019
Climate change is real, and in the last few years science has made it even more clear that the future of the planet is at risk. Andrew Scheer will scrap Canada’s first national climate plan – we can’t afford to go back to the Harper years when the Conservatives did nothing to address climate change.
By moving towards clean tech we have a multi-trillion dollar opportunity to grow our economy and continue investing in our middle class. That’s why we’ll introduce a Just Transition Act, ensuring that workers have access to the training and support they need to succeed in the new clean economy.
