Salt Spring Elementary School petitions for spending on renewable energy, not pipelines

On Thursday, June 21st, 2018 in Climate Change, Kinder Morgan, Parliament, Petitions

Elizabeth May

Mr. Speaker, I have a second petition. This was put together by citizens of Canada. Some people do not recognize that our petition process can accept signatures from those under 18 years of age. This petition comes from Salt Spring Elementary School.

The petitioners ask the government to reconsider spending $7.4 billion on an expanded pipeline. They specifically advocate that the Government of Canada instead build 2,600 wind turbines, thus creating 268,600 jobs; construct 15,600 acres of solar panels; and fund alternative uses for a transition to a renewable energy economy
