MP Cathy McLeod urges Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo residents to add their thoughts to a federal climate consultation with only a few days remaining.
“As a Conservative, I’m committed to preserving and protecting Canada’s environment for future generations,” MP McLeod said in a news release. “At the same time, we will work to keep taxes low for Canadian individuals, families and job creators, and to sustain economic growth and job creation.”
Public comments must be submitted by Aug. 1 through the website.
Key areas of discussion include:
- How and where to reduce emissions.
- Clean technology, innovation and job creation.
- How to prepare for the impacts of a changing climate.
- Putting a price on carbon.
The public engagement was launched April 22 and working groups have been meeting on the subject. In September, those groups will report to ministerial tables, leading up to finalization of a national climate change plan in the fall.
