Andrew Scheer Is Convinced Wider Roads Will Reduce Climate Change & People Are Confused AF - 2019-09-27
Friday, September 27 was a day when thousands upon thousands of Canadians joined together in the name of environmental progress. But an Andrew Scheer climate change speech is causing a stir online after he made a campaign stop in B.C. Scheer announced the Conservative government would make spending on infrastructure to reduce traffic times a priority, including widening roads. His logic had people on Twitter confused and concerned about his plans to address the issue.
Especially on a day like today, plans to combat climate change are undoubtedly a contentious issue for Canadians. While other party leaders marched alongside thousands of Canadians today, Scheer chose to opt out of attending any marches, a move which garnered a lot of criticism.
Instead, he made a campaign stop in Coquitlam, B.C. The topic of climate change inevitably came up. According to BNN Bloomberg, the projects Scheer said he would use federal dollars towards are the George Massey tunnel replacement project in B.C, subway extensions in Toronto, and a third crossing of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec City.
