Budget 2019: Building a Clean Economy

OTTAWA, March 29, 2019 /CNW/ - Canadians' quality of life?and Canada's future growth?are deeply tied to the environment. Failing to invest in a cleaner, more sustainable future threatens the things Canadians rely on for their success: an affordable cost of living, good, well-paying jobs and resilient communities.

Today, Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, and Karen McCrimmon, Member of Parliament for Kanata?Carleton and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, were in Kanata to highlight Budget 2019, Investing in the Middle Class. The Budget makes significant investments to protect Canada's environment?while also helping create new jobs and make life more affordable for Canadians. These investments go hand-in-hand with efforts to help more people find a home, find and keep good jobs, retire with confidence, and get affordable prescription drugs when they need them.

Speaking at an electric vehicle charging station in Kanata, Minister McKenna and Parliamentary Secretary McCrimmon highlighted how investments in Budget 2019 would make it easier and more affordable for Canadians to choose zero-emission vehicles.

In Budget 2019, the Government proposes to protect Canadian families and the environment by:


 "Since 2015, our Government has been taking bold action to ensure that Canadians can benefit from a strong economy and a clean environment. Starting this year, it is no longer free to pollute anywhere in Canada. Our clean growth and climate action plan is expected to result in the biggest drop in carbon pollution in the history of Canada's emissions reporting?while creating more good, well-paying jobs in the clean economy and making life more affordable for Canadians. Budget 2019 continues that work, and will help Canadian communities in the ongoing fight against the devastating effects of climate change and pollution."
? Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
