Many Sault Ste. Marie and area residents are frustrated by the slow pace of action on climate change. “For decades, Canadians have seen successive Liberal and Conservative governments pay lip-service to the threat of climate change while continuing to subsidize the oil and gas industry with public money.” said Morin-Strom. “Now we are in a full-blown climate emergency, but just last year the Trudeau government still gave the fossil fuel industry $18 billion to support its operations. This is the opposite of real action on climate change.”
The NDP’s plan for climate action would eliminate fossil fuel subsidies and reinvest those dollars to help unleash Canada’s renewable energy potential and create good, sustainable jobs in a low-carbon economy – an economy in which the needs of everyday people are a priority, our lands and waters are protected, and the rights of Indigenous people are respected and upheld.
We invite community members who share that vision to come out on Friday afternoon to show their support. Please join NDP candidate Marie Morin-Strom,at 4:45 pm this Friday at the intersection of Great Northern Road and Stevens Street, by the Canadian Tire gas bar, to stand in support of the NDP’s plan for real and effective action on the climate crisis.
