December 4th, 2013 - 2:23pm
Official Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair today unveiled the New Democratic vision for Canada’s energy future—a comprehensive vision based on partnership, sustainability and long-term prosperity.
Speaking at the Economic Club of Canada, Mulcair outlined how successive Liberal and Conservative governments have failed to show leadership or to meet their obligations, and how a New Democratic government will work with provinces, municipalities and First Nations to secure Canada’s energy future for the 21st century.
“Canada’s natural resources can be a source of prosperity for generations to come—if we do things right,” Mulcair said. “New Democrats are laying out a new vision for a new century, one that creates lasting prosperity, instead of feeding an endless cycle of boom and bust.”
The New Democratic Party believes that energy is the motor of the Canadian economy and our energy vision includes practical measures to strengthen Canada’s energy sector, create middle-class jobs, protect the environment, ensure the support of Canadians and of our trade partners, while making Canada a global leader in the clean technology sector of tomorrow.
