The Conservation Council of New Brunswick marked Earth Week by calling for an economic recovery plan for New Brunswick that ensures our communities are more secure, safe, healthy and resilient in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and as citizens continue to deal with the impacts of climate change and extreme weather.
The council’s recommendations, published April 23 in an open letter to Premier Blaine Higgs, focus on three priorities: building food security; building community and ecosystem resiliency through land and water protection; and, building an affordable, reliable and renewable electricity system.
