We are in a time of climate emergency

On Friday, September 22nd, 2017 in climate change, Parliament, Statements

Mr. Speaker, in his last letter to Canadians, read into this record by the hon. member for Ajax, Arnold Chan left us with these words:

Climate change is undeniably the focus of attention today, as it should be. The recent flooding in Texas, hurricane in the Caribbean and Florida, violent monsoon rains in Bangladesh and northern India, and closer to home, the BC wildfires all point to an increasingly unpredictable and potentially destructive pattern of changes….

He went on to say:

Climate change is not just about storms, flooding and heat. It is also about crop failure, food shortage, water scarcity, mass displacement of people…. It is imperative that we stop treating climate change as solely an environmental issue, but recognize it as an all-encompassing priority.

We are in a time of climate emergency.
