Delta, B.C. – A re-elected Liberal government will help Canadians lower their energy bills, make their homes more energy-efficient, and give them the tools to prepare for climate related disasters.
Today, many Canadians live in homes that aren’t energy efficient – which means higher utility bills and more pollution. Meanwhile, more and more homes are in danger of being destroyed from the ever-increasing number of floods and wildfires. Climate change is real, and it’s happening now. As a country we must come together to fight it, and we also need to deal with its consequences.
“It’s expensive to adapt to a changing climate. We are going to help you replace those drafty windows or your old furnace – so you can cut your utility bills and keep our environment healthy,” said the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau. “We have a decision to make. We can go back to the Harper years, when the Conservatives did nothing about climate change, or we can fight for a better future. The choice is that clear.”
A re-elected Liberal government will make life more affordable for Canadians, cut our emissions, and protect the environment.
We will also be there for Canadians when disaster strikes, by:
These measures will build on four years of climate action by our government, including:
“Andrew Scheer doesn’t have a real climate plan. He wants to make pollution free again – which would increase our emissions,” said Mr. Trudeau. “Denial is not a policy. We can go back to the Harper years, when the Conservatives did nothing about climate change – or fight for a better future. I’m for moving forward.”
