Mr. Speaker, this petition was presented to me by a lady named Anita Payne, who ran against me for the Green Party. She has continued to work hard with both myself and the provincial member, who she also ran against, on behalf of climate change issues. I want to congratulate her on that.
The petition essentially asserts that the $50-a-tonne carbon tax proposed by the federal government is insufficient. The petitioners call upon the federal government to extend the carbon fee to at least $150 by the year 2030.
