FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Peterborough, ON— Member of Parliament for Peterborough—Kawartha and Conservative Shadow Minister for Families, Children and Social Development Michelle Ferreri released the following statement on the successful Environmental Policies passed at the 2023 Common-Sense Convention in Quebec City, Quebec:
“Last weekend saw a record-setting attendance in Quebec City for the Conservative Common-Sense Convention, with over 2,500 delegates recommending diverse policy proposals to build into the Conservative Platform in the next general election.
“The Convention began with 60 policies, voted on by Conservative Electoral District Associations coast to coast, with only 30 of these policies making it to the final stage of the convention floor to be voted on.
“Peterborough—Kawartha’s Electoral District Association presented three of the original 60 policies, with two making it to the final stage on the convention floor.
“The first resolution put forward firm policy on energy security, creating diverse, safe, dependable, and economical energy options, focusing on technology over taxes. The second policy on energy transition highlighted how the federal government can work with local communities to meet the future energy needs of Canadians.
“Both resolutions passed with a resounding 94% and 89% favour rating.
“With Peterborough being coined as the ‘Electric City,’ it is fitting that local citizens develop some of the Conservative Party of Canada’s environment policy to support energy security and transition.
“I am so proud of the work of the members of our local Electoral District Association for delivering on some of the most important policies for the next election’s platform.”
