Joint Statement from Saskatchewan NDP Energy Critic Aleana Young and Alberta NDP Energy Critic Nagwan Al-Guneid on Bill C-372, “An Act respecting fossil fuel advertising”:
“We do not support the Private Member’s Bill introduced by Charlie Angus. Energy companies are important job creators in Alberta and Saskatchewan and shouldn't be singled out by advertising restrictions. We already have legislation around false advertising, and we are more interested in advancing ideas that can actually help people. It is not helpful to pick fights that just polarize people and get in the way of the real solutions we need.
