Schedule set for four of “100 Debates on the Environment,” Greater Victoria Region — 3 Comments

  1. I wonder how much of a debate this will be, given that all the major parties agree that man-made climate change is real, and that we should honour our commitment to the Paris Accords.

    Funny that the debate sponsor insists that “The 100 Debates project is a strictly non-partisan initiative focused on bringing voters together at the riding level to hear candidates’ best policy proposals for the environment.”

    Yet, in the next paragraph, they say they ” will be endorsing candidates who are environmental leaders this election.”

    The Peoples Party of Canada is the only party that says they will pull out of the Paris Accords AND scrap the Carbon Tax. The Conservatives say they will honour the Paris Accords, scrap the Federal Carbon Tax, but leave it to the Provinces to decide if a Provincial Carbon Tax is warrranted. (BC was the first province to enact a Carbon Tax). Everybody else is on board for the Paris Accords AND a Federal Carbon Tax.

    You can compare all the political parties’ climate change policies here:

  2. I hope folks will be open-minded and consider the People’s Party of Canada.
    I used to support the NDP and the Greens until I did my research. Their platform and other info can be found here:

    Jeremy Gustafson is the PPC candidate for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke, I hope you will give him your time and consideration.

    The biggest polluter in the world by far is China. Not Canada and not the USA.
