QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner made the following statement regarding the Supreme Court decision on the carbon tax lawsuit:
“This $30 million lawsuit was a politically motivated waste of public dollars.
Proceeding with this lawsuit was more proof that the Premeir denies the urgent need to take the climate emergency seriously.
Chief Justice Wagner’s words should send a clear message to the Premier. The threat of climate change is so great that a national approach is necessary.
I’m calling on the Premier to stop wasting our hard-earned tax dollars sabotaging climate solutions with stickers that don’t stick and politically motivated lawsuits.
I will continue to push for urgent climate action. If we’ve learned anything from the COVID pandemic, it is the need to listen to and act on the science when confronted with a crisis. And the climate crisis is at our doorstep.”
