VICTORIA B.C. – Andrew Weaver, leader of the B.C. Green Party issued the following statement for Earth Day:
“Earth Day reminds us that we have a moral imperative to leave the world better off than we found it. Climate change is one of the most important issues facing British Columbia and the world. If we don’t take it seriously with bold public policy, future generations will be forced ask why the present generation failed them.
“Decisions today must be based on evidence and long-term thinking. I am proud of the platform the B.C. Green Party is putting forward in this election; it proposes bold changes to put us on track for now and the future. In particular, our climate leadership strategy is grounded in science, based on evidence and includes measures that will position British Columbia as a leader again.
“This Earth Day, I hope that we will all take a moment to celebrate our extraordinary province, which is so often characterized by its natural beauty, and reflect on the importance of the upcoming election, which will set our course as a province for the next four years and longer.”
