This was the last week of the second session of the 44th parliament. Elizabeth made it through her 11th year in parliament, while Mike and his team made it through their first session. Congratulations to us! On Wednesday, Elizabeth’s Private Member’s Bill C-226 passed with a vote of 177 – 146! Greens are now one step closer to making law in Canada for the third time. The vote confirmed that MPs across party lines recognize Canada’s need for a strategy to address environmental racism and work towards environmental justice. Parliament is scheduled to resume on Monday, September 19th. Until then, stay safe, and thank you for reading the Green Caucus Week in Review.
