But British Columbia MPs Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party, and the NDP’s Nathan Cullen call the budget undemocratic and its stance on the environment the worst in Canada’s history.

“I can’t imagine another time in our nation’s history when a significant threat facing our economy, our kids, like the climate crisis, would not even merit a mention,” May said on CTV’s Question Period Sunday.

“(It’s) a budget that throws everything at fossil fuel extraction, while demonizing the environmental movement, threatening it and killing the advisory body that tells you about the crisis . . . it’s got to merit the worst Canadian budget in our history,” she said.
