QUEEN’S PARK — Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner made the following statement on the day of his swearing in ceremony:
“This government’s actions over the past four years have signalled loud and clear that fighting the climate crisis is not a priority for them.
We simply cannot continue down the path of dismantling environmental protections and increasing climate pollution by building new highways and ramping up gas plants.
Having a Green at Queen’s Park is key to holding this government accountable and to ensure that we don’t go backward on the biggest crisis of our generation.
I am so grateful that the people of Guelph have once again given me the honour and responsibility to fight for a better future and a healthy planet for our children and grandchildren.
I am looking forward to being a voice for Guelph and for all of the people across the province advocating for real climate action.”
