Cowichan Valley Green Party MLA Sonia Furstenau says she’s excited about the announcement of a clean growth strategy expected during this sitting.
“I’m excited to see that we are going to have a clean growth strategy review, so, ways to make our community and our province more resilient and more able to address and adapt to climate change. A strategy that reduces our emissions but also creates exactly the kind of communities that we want to live in and I am really excited to see that coming forward.”
