Wilderness Committee: Pallister's 180 On Carbon Tax Is A "Dumpster Fire"

An environmental watch-dog is saying that the Pallister Government’s climate plan is a “dumpster fire”. 


Wilderness Committee wilderness and water campaigner Eric Reder says that the government took a step backwards when the Premier announced the cancellation of the planned carbon tax. 


Reder went on to say that our future and security have to be the first priority of our elected officials, and that the work the group has done with the Province over the past two years has been dismissed by Pallister as “apparently because his feelings were hurt by the prime minister”.  


He added that climate change is not a partisan issue, and that Manitobans need to take action now. 


The Wilderness Committee says that they have called for a joint meeting with Brian Pallister, Wab Kinew and Dougald Lamont to put together a joint statement of serious action to combat climate change.
