Parliament Video: Jenny Kwan in Question Period - "There is no Planet B!!"

On March 20, 2019, Jenny rose in Question Period to ask if the Liberal government will listen to the voices of young people, who know that there is no Planet B, and admit that Harper's C02 emissions targets and buying oil pipelines won't cut it for climate action:

"Mr. Speaker, 1.5 million students around the world took to the streets in a climate strike last Friday.

Students from Canada, from coast to coast to coast, flooded the streets with a clear message: There is no planet B. We have 12 years to avert climate disaster, and climate leaders do not buy pipelines. Our children are demanding real action and an end to empty promises. Budget 2019 continues to subsidize big oil.

Will the Prime Minister admit that Harper's emission targets will not cut it, and that buying a 65-year-old pipeline is not climate action?"
