Manitoba Liberals continue to focus on our Environment

Earlier today, Craig Larkins and Dougald Lamont emphasized our Manitoba Liberal plan to continue to put an emphasis on the environment - recognizing that addressing climate change needs to be an urgent and major priority, and that moving to phase our single use plastics is needed. 

Manitoba Liberals Will Declare a Climate Emergency & Phase out Single Use Plastics

WINNIPEG - Manitoba Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont was joined by Craig Larkins, Manitoba Liberal Candidate for Fort Garry, to say that on the first day of returning to the legislature, Manitoba Liberals will reintroduce their resolution to declare a climate emergency and a bill that will phase out the use of single use plastics in Manitoba by 2025. 

Manitoba Liberals have been fighting for our environment in the Legislature for over a decade. 

“I was so proud to work on this plan and resolution with the Manitoba Liberal team during the previous session. I would be honoured to bring it back to the floor and ensure that Manitoba is taking serious action on Climate Change,” said Larkins. “The Climate Crisis is the defining moment of our generation, and our first day back we will move to make a difference.” 

The Waste Reduction Amendment Act was introduced by Liberal members in 2009 and then enhanced in 2019. It requires the government to create a plan to phase-out the use of single-use plastics and polystyrene foam containers in Manitoba by 2025.

The resolution will seek to declare that Manitoba is in a climate emergency, which requires the Provincial Government commit to meeting emissions reductions targets under the Paris Agreement. 

The Manitoba Liberal Party has the boldest green plan of any party in the election, with concrete commitment to making Manitoba carbon neutral by 2030 — 20 years before the NDP. 

The Manitoba Liberal Plan for Green Growth and Renewal sets out ambitious but realistic steps for a greener Manitoba by renegotiating a Manitoba green plan with the Federal Government to take back control, investing in wilderness restoration, electrifying provincial transportation and the power grid, and making it easier for Manitobans to go green.

Dougald Lamont speaks at Meth Forum last night to present positive ideas to address the epidemic, while exposing the lack of action by the Pallister Conservatives

Last night at the Notre Dame Recreation Centre in St. Boniface, at an Election Forum on the Meth Crisis in Manitoba, Dougald Lamont spoke eloquently about the severity of the meth epidemic and described the Liberal plan to address it.  The Liberal Plan will make sure that there is a single province-wide phone number for people, or friends of people, who need help dealing with meth to call (as there is in Alberta) and that there will be rapid access to a seamless series of steps - stabilization, detoxification, treatment, extended supportive housing etc so that people with meth addiction can be helped well and effectively and so that they can rebuild their lives.  The Liberal meth plan will be helped by our approach to mental health (putting psychological therapies under medicare), and to poverty (providing better support).  It will also be helped by our vigorous efforts to help young people understand the problems with meth in our education system and to provide alternative positive

The Indigenous Science Conference in Winnipeg June 14-16

  June 14 to 16, I spent three days at the Turtle Island Indigenous Science Conference.  It was very worthwhile.   Speaker after speaker talked of the benefits of using both western or mainstream science and Indigenous science.  There is much we can learn from both approaches.   With me above is Myrle Ballard, one of the principal organizers of the conference.  Myrle Ballard, from Lake St. Martin in Manitoba, worked closely with Roger Dube a professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, and many others to make this conference, the first of its kind, a success.  As Roger Dube, Mohawk and Abenaki, a physicist, commented "My feeling is that the fusion of traditional ecological knowledge and Western science methodology should rapidly lead the researchers to much more holistic solutions to problems."   Dr. Myrle Ballard was the first person from her community to get a PhD.  She is currently a professor at the University of Manitoba and the Director of Indigenous Science
