NDP Statement on the Launch of LePacte.ca

NDP Critic for Environment, Alexandre Boulerice, made the following statement:

"Today, more than 400 Québécois celebrities heeded the call for change by director Dominic Champagne and gathered at the Théâtre du Nouveau-Monde in Montreal to launch, what I believe to be, an initiative that is absolutely necessary. That's why I signed The Pact without hesitation.
We all need to do our fair share to ensure a green energy transition. As a federal MP, my work is twofold: to reduce my personal ecological footprint, but also to stand up every day in the House of Commons and call on the federal government to enact more ambitious GHG reduction targets; to force the government to put an end to pipeline expansions, to eliminate all subsidies to oil companies, and to put into place concrete measures to protect our waterways.
We need political action if we are to really take on climate change and I am committed to being a strong voice for all Quebecers who want a real plan of action."
