Let the people lead

By Letter to the Editor on August 24, 2019.

While it is insane, the stance taken against climate control by the People Party, it’s even more bizarre that Elections Canada clamps down on discussion of the issue.

Our house is on fire and we can’t form a bucket brigade! Let us tell our wishy washy politicians, in the words of Dwight Eisenhower, get out of the way and let the people lead.

    The stance taken by the people’s party is quoted below. Agree or disagree the issue needs to be debated
    A People’s Party government will:

    Withdraw from the Paris Accord and abandon unrealistic greenhouse gas emission reduction targets.
    Stop sending billions of dollars to developing countries to help them reduce their emissions.
    Abolish the Liberal government’s carbon tax and leave it to provincial governments to adopt programs to reduce emissions if they want to.
    Abolish subsidies for green technology and let private players develop profitable and efficient alternatives.
    Invest in mitigation strategies if problems arise as a result of any natural climate change.
    Prioritize implementing practical solutions to make Canada’s air, water and soil cleaner, including bringing clean drinking water to remote First Nations communities.
