NDP re-gifts BC Liberal climate change plan in time for Christmas: BC Liberal
Vancouver: BC Liberal Environment Critic Peter Milobar said in a statement in response to the NDP government’s climate change plan, that “the NDP’S climate change plan continues to take British Columbia down a path first started by the BC Liberals.”
“On the surface it appears to be an update to our 2015 plan but with no specifics. The devil’s in the details and they won’t show us the details until next year’s budget. It makes you question why it took the NDP and Greens a year to come up with a plan that is so similar to the one we originally designed.
“Given that this plan continues to strive to meet our original dates and targets, the initiatives announced today are largely to be expected, and in the context of a climate change plan, would be considered the more straightforward elements.
“The challenge for the government will be to address the missing 25 per cent of targeted emissions. For that, there is a profound lack of detail, and looks like yet another stalling tactic by the NDP.
