NDP re-gifts BC Liberal cli­mate change plan in time for Christ­mas: BC Liberal

Asian Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
