Dear Ministers Twyford and Robertson,

Over the next few days you will be deciding what shovel ready and Provincial Growth Fund projects to support.  Evidence shows that a green stimulus delivers more jobs, faster and with greater economic multipliers than more traditional stimulus.  If you want to deliver the best bang for buck you will deliver a green stimulus.

Please choose to fund projects that:

  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • build resilience to climate change impacts
  • protect and maintain important native species
  • improve water quality
  • enhance the sustainability of the marine environment and fisheries
  • reduce waste and promote a circular economy.

If projects could increase greenhouse gas emissions or harm nature, please don’t fund them.

I look forward to hearing your announcement of a green stimulus in the coming days.
