A Green and Prosperous Nova Scotia

ACTION:

  • • Progressive Conservative government will renew our commitment to a clean environment by modernizing and extending the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act.
  • We will pass a Clean Air Act and set enforceable standards for emissions.
  • • We will create jobs and invest in making Nova Scotia greener by launching the Environmental Reclamation and Community Enhancement Fund.
  • • We know a healthy environment can be a big boost for our tourism industry, so we will establish an Eco-Tourism Task Force.

Nova Scotia is known for its beautiful natural attractions and its pristine shoreline. That reputation is critical to tourism and other businesses that employ thousands of Nova Scotians.

More importantly, our environment impacts the daily lives of all Nova Scotians. We will pass a Clean Air Act to set enforceable standards for emission control and hold polluters responsible for noncompliance.

Progressive Conservatives understand that a healthy environment contributes to a healthy economy and to our long-term prosperity. We will launch the Environmental Reclamation and Community Enhancement Fund to clean up polluted areas.

ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE

As Progressive Conservatives, we’re proud to have passed the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act (EGSPA). It was ground-breaking legislation that set our province on the path to a greener, more successful future. Now, we must build on that success. A Jamie Baillie government will modernize EGSPA and set new targets for the next 30 years.

These actions will have a more positive impact on our environment than any form of Liberal carbon tax. We oppose Liberal carbon taxes that make life more expensive for Nova Scotians and don’t protect our environment
