Today I was in Montreal East with Valérie Fortier to announce some policies of the Green Party of Quebec regarding the fight against the oil industry.

We propose:

  • A carbon tax of $200 per ton of CO2 ($0.46 per liter of gasoline)
  • Free public transit and several strong projects
  • Replacing fossil fuels in the heating sector with electricity
  • A moratorium on all new petroleum infrastructure in Quebec (pipelines, drilling, rafting, etc.).
  • Inclusion of the right to a healthy environment in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms
  • Massive investments in the deployment of renewable energies
  • The fight against the oil industry is the fight of our generation. Let’s take action now! ✊

Alex Tyrrell
Leader of the Green Party of Quebec
