Earl Dreeshen notes that there are three guiding principles to the federal Conservatives environment plan. They include green technology rather than taxes, a greener environment through better protection of the ecosystem and wildlife by working with stakeholders, as well as a global approach to fighting climate.
The federal Conservatives are taking a common sense approach to look after the environment, according to the Red Deer-Mountain View MP.
Earl Dreeshen says the Green Homes Tax Credit is one of the first key points that will help the consumer.
He talks about the Green Technology Innovation Fund.
The Red Deer-Mountain View MP discusses the Green Patent Credit.
Dreeshen says the carbon tax has had no effect on reducing emissions.
Leader Andrew Scheer says his Tories would scrap the Liberals' carbon tax, believing that Canada stands a better chance of meeting the emission-reduction targets in the Paris climate accord by focusing more on technology.
