Mr. Peter Julian (Burnabyâ€”New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, climate change continues to be a threat to our future and costs our economy billions of dollars, but the Conservatives continue to evade any action on the climate crisis.
The Prime Minister promised to introduce regulations on oil and gas emissions. For years, that was his stock answer: just wait for the regulations. Then one day, the Prime Minister decided his own plan was â€œcrazyâ€�. Despite promising a cap and trade system in the 2008 campaign, Conservatives now say they are opposed to dealing with the climate crisis.
