HAMILTON/HALTON– Ontario Greens Leader Mike Schreiner was in Hamilton, Burlington and Oakville today to focus on the party’s retrofit and green constructing program and meet with residents to debate Green solutions to the challenges facing the region.
“It’s amazing to see Green solutions in motion,” Schreiner said following a tour of local non-profit Green Enterprise’s Ecohouse project.
“By making buildings more energy efficient, we are able to create higher jobs, help people and businesses permanently cut their utility costs and crush climate pollution all at the identical time. It’s a win-win-win.”
Ontario Greens are committed to investing $16 billion over 4 years to speed up and scale up net-zero constructing upgrades that can create latest businesses, latest careers and latest uses for Ontario lumber while permanently cutting utility bills.
Scheriner also joined local candidates Kyle Hutton for Burlington, Ali Hosny for Oakville–North Burlington and Bruno Sousa for Oakville to fulfill with residents and discuss Green solutions to local challenges.
“Ontario Greens have real solutions to local problems,” said Schreiner. “Whether it’s addressing the housing affordability crisis while protecting farmland and nature, creating good, green jobs by investing in the brand new climate economy, or making life more cost-effective by slashing energy bills and ending expensive commutes.
“And we’ve got great local candidates leading the way in which who will likely be strong voices for his or her communities at Queen’s Park.”
