— Statement from Eric Melillo —
A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment
Conservatives will focus on green technologies to make a real difference; not taxes like the Trudeau Liberals and Jagmeet Singh’s NDP .
On June 19th, Canada’s Conservatives released A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment- a platform containing 55 policy commitments to fight climate change and protect our environment.
Our plan is built on the principles of investing in green technology, taking a leadership role in reducing global emissions, and working with Indigenous peoples, hunters and anglers, and farmers to promote a cleaner environment.
A Conservative government will introduce a Green Home Tax Credit to help homeowners pay for energy-saving renovations, provide incentives for the green technology sector to do research and development in Canada, and pursue opportunities to connect communities to clean power.
This is in stark contrast to the Liberals, who have no plan for the environment and have only provided a taxation plan. Canadian families and small businesses will have to pay 92% of Trudeau’s carbon tax, while the big polluters will receive massive exemptions. Under the Liberal scheme, Canada is falling further away from meeting the Paris targets.
Our Conservative plan balances the need to fight climate change with our promise of leaving more money in Canadians’ pockets and helping everyone get ahead. You can read our plan here: https://arealplan.ca/
