Leading Environmental Organizations Release Federal Party Responses.

Where do Canada's Parties stand on the environment?

OTTAWA, Oct. 1, 2019 - Today, Canada's leading environmental organizations released the answers to a Federal Party Survey on Environmental Platforms that address the climate change, biodiversity, toxics and waste crises harming our country. The survey was distributed to the six main political parties in July 2019 and responses were received from five of them: the Bloc Quebecois, Conservative Party of Canada, Green Party of Canada, Liberal Party of Canada and New Democratic Party. The People's Party of Canada did not respond.

The survey represents the collective priorities of the 14 environmental organizations and outlines required actions to address the environmental protection, economic justice and human rights issues facing Canadians. This non-partisan survey of the parties' positions on environmental issues was developed to help Canadians make informed voting decisions.
