WEST VANCOUVER, BC – A Liberal government will take immediate steps to protect our oceans, safeguard our marine and coastal habitats, and ensure a more beautiful and prosperous country for our children and grandchildren, said the Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada, Justin Trudeau, today.
“Liberals will build a better country and a sustainable economy that gives hard-working Canadians a real and fair chance to succeed. We will improve the air we breathe, the water we drink, the parks and beaches where our children play,” said Mr. Trudeau. “From coast to coast to coast, that means investing in the protection of our oceans – the health of which is vital to safeguarding our environment and growing our economy.”
A Liberal government will:
“For ten years, Stephen Harper has refused to take meaningful action on the environment – slashing environmental protections, muzzling scientists, cutting overall science funding, and allowing other countries to take the lead on pressing issues like climate change,” said Mr. Trudeau. “We can’t afford to let this continue.
Our plan will protect our oceans and grow our economy, and make a real, positive difference in the lives of all Canadians.”
