Today I wrote to the minister of the environment calling on him to take steps to end the use of propane and other fossil fuels in Quebec.
The current propane shortage that has been triggered by the CN rail strike has shown just how over dependent we are on this fossil fuel. We should not be heating our homes, businesses and agricultural operations with fossil fuels in 2019.
In my letter I urged the minister to invest in renewable energy solutions such as biogas, geothermal and renewable electricity. Doing so would position the province as a leader in the fight against climate change while creating thousands of jobs and ending our dependence on imported fossil fuels.
Please join me in speaking out about our overdependence on propane and other fossil fuels!
