43rd Parliament, 1st Session
Context : Presenting Petitions
Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminster—Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, it is my pleasure to also present a petition on the Green New Deal, on behalf of dozens of residents of the Toronto, Burlington and Waterdown, Ontario, areas.
These petitioners add their names to the thousands of petitions and signatures that are pouring in from across the length and breadth of our country, calling on the Parliament of Canada to adopt Motion M-1, the Green New Deal, and for the Government of Canada to put in place a rigorous and comprehensive plan to combat the climate emergency.
They also call upon the government and for Parliament to act, through M-1, to address the climate emergency, make sure that we are tackling at the same time, through the Green New Deal, increasing socio-economic and racial inequalities and ensuring workers are transitioned to a clean energy economy. Thank you Mr. Speaker.
