Elizabeth May celebrates the actions of Université Laval to commit to divest from all fossil fuel holdings, and is encouraging all Canadian universities, pension funds and other institutional investors to do the same.

Ms. May stated: “With this action, Laval becomes the first Canadian university to take responsible action to switch its endowment fund investments in fossil energy to other types of investments, such as renewable energy,” said Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada (MP, Saanich-Gulf Islands). “On university campuses across Canada, student and faculty associations are standing up for real climate action, and encouraging their university boards to divest from fossil fuel holdings. This peaceful action is helping spur us towards a clean-energy future.”
