Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Canadians Need Climate Action And Affordable Housing Now

On November 27, 2018, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Madam Speaker, during the campaign, the Liberals did not say to Canadians that they would spend $4.5 billion to buy a leaky pipeline, but that is what they did.

Instead of doing that, why do we not see the government investing that money into green energy, into the future. Climate action is so necessary, not just for our generation today but for generations to come.

My question for the Minister of Finance is this. Why do the Liberals not reinvest that $4.5 billion, which was used to buy the Kinder Morgan, now Trans Mountain leaky pipeline, into action that matters for the future, the environment?"
