More policy debate, please
Voters need to hear more policy debate, across the board, ahead of the federal election.
For climate change this is especially so given the urgency and scale of the issues. Canada has already declared a federal climate emergency. So have municipalities across B.C. and on Vancouver Island.
There are proposals on the table such as the Green New Deal that need more air time. We need to hear more ideas proposed, vetted, debated, tried, failed, revised, rinse and repeat from all parties. I hope that the Debate Commission, CBC, and other media platforms hold leaders’ climate debates and forums. The stakes are too high and voters need to know more before the election.
