(A Brief Foreword Note from NAL publisher Doug Draper – One of the reasons I am posting this is that I cannot image a leader of the Ontario Conservative Party even saying something like this over the past 25 years.)
The following is a statement from Leader of the Ontario PC Party Patrick Brown on Earth Day:
“On Earth Day, people from across the globe gather together to celebrate the beauty and splendour of the natural environment. Whether it’s the Niagara Falls in the South or the Boreal Forest in the North, in Ontario we are fortunate enough to be home to some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
To ensure that our province’s natural resources and pristine landscapes continue to flourish for generations to come, we must recognize that climate change is one of the biggest threats facing our world. Strong and credible action is needed to tackle climate change, to preserve and protect the environment while protecting taxpayers and the economy.
So on not just Earth Day, but every day, I encourage all Ontarians to do their part to conserve and safeguard our environment – little actions can make a big difference. We owe it to future generations to take action.”
