The Canadian Politician – In what appears to be a continuation of the recent global march against climate change and demand for action from world leaders, Canadian party leaders will be marching today to focus attention on the need to cut greenhouse-gas emissions. Elizabeth May of the Green Party and Justin Trudeau of the Liberal Party will be in Montreal with Swedish teenager activist Greta Thunberg. Thunberg last week gave a passionate speech on the environment tagged “How dare you!” that has endeared many to her and earned her the alternate Nobel Prize.
Maxime Bernier of the People’s Party remains in his home province of Quebec to consolidate his support base while Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer will be in BC canvassing for support in the cities of Maple Ridge and Richmond. The New Democrats leader, Jagmeet Singh, continues his campaign in BC where he is expected to reveal his party’s platform on the protection of the country’s natural resources specifically the vast coastlines. Thereafter, Singh is expected to join the climate march in Victoria.
