Parliament Video: Jenny asks: Where's the real, accountable action to protect our climate and our Earth???

The Liberal's Throne Speech included pretty words on climate action, but no action plan for real, accountable actions to avert climate emergency and protect mother Earth. Jenny rose in the House today to ask when the Liberal minority government will table legislation on these points, and she will persist in demanding this action, because we have no Planet B:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, as we know, we are faced with a climate emergency. Young people from coast to coast to coast have taken to the streets with a climate strike, yet in the throne speech, while the government talked about climate action, it is silent with respect to real action. There is no mention of implementing an environmental bill of rights, a climate change accountability act or anything that would ensure real action will be taken to protect mother earth.

Could the member comment on that and whether the government will be tabling legislation to protect the environment?"
