I want to build back better after the pandemic with an inclusive green new deal. Let's give all Canadians a competitive advantage and the chance to thrive in the new economy.
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to choose what kind of rebuild we will have. I believe we need to make sure we have an inclusive recovery - one that recognizes that women, BIPOC and youth have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.
A green new deal for Brampton Centre would include new affordable housing that's energy efficient and built to last.
It means new jobs in the knowledge economy - not unreliable and precarious work.
And most of all it means an investment in the future of our country and community.
It's good economics - but we also know that climate change is real. If we fail to address this challenge there will be real and tangible consequences for the next generation.
