Week in Review: June 11 – 15
Welcome to Elizabeth May's parliamentary week in review! This weekly e-newsletter recaps her work in Parliament when the House is in session. Using the links below, you can watch videos of Elizabeth's interventions in the House, keep up with her media releases, and read articles she has written.
Midnight sittings in the House continued this week. Seizing every opportunity to speak before the summer recess, Elizabeth made almost three dozen interventions on climate change, pipelines, carbon pricing, the Fisheries Act, the environmental protections bill, and cannabis legalization.
Thank you to all those who have signed Elizabeth's petition to halt the government's purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline. Between the acceleration of pipeline accidents over the past two years and Kinder Morgan's admission of non-compliance with the Fisheries Act, it is painfully obvious that this government has made an atrocious deal on the backs of taxpayers. Show them how much Canadians disagree with their decision by helping Elizabeth get to 12 000 signatures! The e-petition can be found here.
