The Three Guiding Principles Behind Andrew Scheer’s Climate Plan

Conservatives say the climate plan builds on the legacy of their party on the environment.

The Conservative Party of Canada has released their climate plan.

The document, which the Conservatives says is 60 pages long, provides a contrast to Justin Trudeau’s extremely unpopular carbon tax.

On YouTube, the Conservatives said the climate plan was based on 3 key guiding principles.

You can read what they wrote below:

“A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment balances the need to fight climate change by lowering emissions with our core Conservative promise of leaving more money in Canadians’ pockets and letting them get ahead. Our plan is based on three guiding principles:

1. Green technology, not taxes is the best way to lower Canada’s emissions.

2. We will work with farmers, hunters and anglers, Indigenous peoples, provinces, and territories to promote a cleaner and greener natural environment to protect our air, land, water and wildlife.

3. Greenhouse gas emissions do not recognize borders. Canada has a leadership role to play and we must take our fight against climate change global. Our Conservative plan, A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment, is Canada’s best chance to meet the Paris targets, without a carbon tax.”
