Sign Up to Speak Out on Climate Change Solutions

The Government of NB and the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly have just released some details around the summer deadlines for the Select Committee on Climate Change.

In the news release, the committee said it is inviting the public and interested groups who wish to make a presentation on the issues discussed in Building a Stronger New Brunswick Response to Climate Change to advise the Office of the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly by July 15.

“The committee is looking forward to hearing from New Brunswickers on such an important issue as climate change,” said committee chair Andrew Harvey.

“We anticipate the public hearings will occur in late August and early September. Once we have an idea on the level of interest, we will announce the specific dates and locations. We are hopeful that everyone will take a look at the discussion guide and want to share their thoughts and ideas on the issues discussed.”

The committee will also accept written briefs. They should be submitted to the Office of the Clerk by Aug. 19.

The Legislature established the Select committee on April 8th, after unanimously approving a motion introduced by former Environment Minister Brian Kenny. The motion says, in part, that the government recognizes that investing in clean technology solutions, especially in areas such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and cleaner energy production and use, holds great promise for sustainable economic development and long-term job creation.

The Select Committee on Climate Change is composed of: Chair, Andrew Harvey (Lib), the Member for Carleton-Victoria; Bernard LeBlanc (Lib), the Member for Memramcook-Tantramar; Monique LeBlanc (Lib), the Member for Moncton East, John Ames (Lib), the Member for Charlotte-Campobello; Wilfred Roussel (Lib), the Member for Shippagan-Lamèque-Miscou, Jody Carr (PC), the Member for Oromocto- Lincoln, Brian Keirstead (PC), the Member for Albert; and David Coon (Green), the Member for Fredericton South.
