Real Change for Quebec's Environment

MONTREAL, July 03, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable Stéphane Dion, MP for Saint-Laurent- Cartierville along with candidates from the Liberal Party of Canada presented their environmental commitments at the Maison de development durable in Montreal. The Liberal candidates present for the announcement included: François Champagne, candidate in St -Maurice-Champlain; Christine Poirier, candidate in Laurier-Sainte-Marie; and Peter Schiefke, candidate in Vaudreuil-Soulanges. These candidates have a significant environmental background.

"A Liberal plan will bring a wave of real change for our environment, our economy, and our future".

- Justin Trudeau, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

The Liberals offer a credible plan which will repair the damages caused by Stephen Harper's Conservative government. The Liberal plan calls for concrete measures that will help combat climate change and invest in green technologies. The Liberal team is looking towards the future by developing a Canadian energy strategy that will ensure energy conservation and safety all while investing millions of dollars in new green technologies.

In order to create more green jobs and stimulate greater investment, the Liberal Party plans to improve tax measures that will help companies to innovate, grow and create jobs. A next Liberal government led by Justin Trudeau, will take part in the UN conference on climate change with other provincial premiers. Moreover, the protection of our wildlife and our rivers will be prioritized by increasing the number of marine and coastal protected areas from 5 percent by 2017 to 10 percent by 2020.

Free entry to national parks in 2017

More Canadian families will be able to enjoy the natural beauty of our country.  A Liberal government will offer free admission to national parks in 2017, on the year of the 150th anniversary of Confederation. This measure would be funded from the advertising budget of Canada's 150th anniversary.
