NDP demands action on climate change and environmental protectionSeptember 21st, 2014
The NDP used the Global Day of Action on Climate Change on Sunday to criticize what it calls the government’s “miserable track record on climate change” and to demand real action.
“We believe we have an obligation to be responsible stewards of the environment and to do what we can to leave future generations a healthy and vibrant planet,” said Cathy Sproule, NDP environment critic. “And, as a resource-producing and trade-dependent province, it’s essential that we’re smart and diligent about environmental regulation and environmental protection. That’s why it’s been so frustrating to watch this government slash our province’s emission-reduction targets and cut climate change funding by 83 per cent since 2009, including another 35 per cent in this year’s budget.”Read Full Article...
NDP to government: stop your excuses and fix Highway 302September 20th, 2014
A collapsed section of Highway 302 near Prince Albert has taken more than four months to repair. The NDP has been working with local community members to demand government stop making excuses and fix the road.
NDP Highways and Infrastructure critic Buckley Belanger and community members visited the area again Saturday, where work is still far from complete. The road’s initial collapse was following a culvert backup on May 3. The scheduled completion date for repairs was June 24, but the highway is still washed out, causing a lengthy detour for residents.
“The giant, four-month hole at Highway 302 is a case of highway mismanagement by this government, and that’s been happening far too often,” said Belanger. “This government has turned a common, one-month culvert repair into a four-month, $1.2 million boondoggle. Families, workers and businesses have been really hurt by the long detour in place, and they tell me they don’t want to hear one more excuse – they want to see action and results.”Read Full Article...
