Michelle Rempel Garner recognizes that climate change is a real public policy challenge and requires a strong response. Canadians and Alberta's care about the environment and expect their government to develop policies to address the growing concern of climate change and protect our environment. Michelle believes we need to discuss ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the context of a balanced budget, using policies that will actually target emissions and not taxpayers.
Michelle wrote a comprehensive article in the National Post questioning the efficacy of a carbon tax and suggesting better policy alternatives here https://nationalpost.com/opinion/michelle-rempel-serious-questions-about-ghg-policy
Michelle and her Conservative colleagues have put forward a comprehensive plan to protect Canada’s environment, fight climate change and protect taxpayers through implementing a series of policies. Some of these policies include:
Justin Trudeau has failed to address the growing concern of climate change. He has implemented policies that hurt hard working Albertans, target Alberta’s vital industries and do nothing to reduce GHG emissions.
Michelle will keep holding the government accountable for failing to put forward a real plan to protect Canada’s environment. She will continue to listen to the needs and voices of our community on this issue.
