QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner rose in the House to call out the government on their failure to address the climate emergency:
“Yesterday’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report was the bleakest warning of the climate emergency yet.
The climate fire is burning all around us. But instead of using a fire hose to put it out, the Premier is using a tiny red shovel.
Ramping up gas plants, supercharging sprawl and climate pollution with projects like Highway 413 and the Holland Marsh Highway, and paving over the wetlands that protect us from climate disasters like expensive flooding will make the crisis worse.
Will the government finally make the climate emergency a priority and commit to crushing climate pollution and permanently protecting wetlands?”
