Yesterday, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer unveiled A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment. The full plan is available online at ARealPlan.ca.
Conservatives have a proud legacy when it comes to managing Canada’s natural environment and improving Canada’s environmental performance. We created the national parks system, negotiated the Canada-US acid rain treaty, brought in the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and much more.
A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment, a plan that will conserve our environment for future generations, protect our children from the effects of climate change, and make a real impact on global emissions reduction.
This plan is built on our proud Conservative legacy and is based on three guiding principles:
- Green technology, not taxes is the best way to lower Canada’s emissions.
- We will work with farmers, hunters and anglers, Indigenous peoples, provinces, and territories to promote a cleaner and greener natural environment to protect our air, land, water and wildlife.
- Greenhouse gas emissions do not recognize borders. Canada has a leadership role to play and we must take our fight against climate change global.
A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment will reduce global emissions without imposing a carbon tax and is Canada’s best chance to meet the Paris targets. We will balance the need to fight climate change by lowering emissions with our core promise of leaving more money in Canadians’ pockets and letting them get ahead
