OTTAWA â€“ Official Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair today unveiled the New Democratic vision for Canadaâ€™s energy futureâ€”a comprehensive vision based on partnership, sustainability and long-term prosperity.
Speaking at the Economic Club of Canada, Mulcair outlined how successive Liberal and Conservative governments have failed to show leadership or to meet their obligations, and how a New Democratic government will work with provinces, municipalities and First Nations to secure Canadaâ€™s energy future for the 21st century.
â€œCanadaâ€™s natural resources can be a source of prosperity for generations to comeâ€”if we do things right,â€� Mulcair said. â€œNew Democrats are laying out a new vision for a new century, one that creates lasting prosperity, instead of feeding an endless cycle of boom and bust.â€�
The New Democratic Party believes that energy is the motor of the Canadian economy and our energy vision includes practical measures to strengthen Canadaâ€™s energy sector, create middle-class jobs, protect the environment, ensure the support of Canadians and of our trade partners, while making Canada a global leader in the clean technology sector of tomorrow.
