June 7, 2019 — Mr. Boulerice (Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie) — That, in the opinion of the House, in order for Canada to mount a credible fight against catastrophic global climate change, the economy and the environment must go hand in hand, meaning that: (a) efforts to combat climate change must contribute to a strong economy; (b) measures to bolster the economy must contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, (c) no region or worker should be left behind; (d) good jobs are created while investing in renewable energy; and (e) the $4.5-billion purchase and further multi-billion-dollar planned expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline works in direct opposition to that principle.
