The Canadian political landscape has changed to a solid Liberal majority for new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The Liberals were elected in 184 constituencies; the Conservatives won 99 seats, the NDP 44, the Bloc Quebecois 10, and the Green Party leader held her lone seat on Vancouver Island.
Now that the election is over, we can expect the Liberal government to implement its platform promises. The BCWF posed questions to all the federal parties and are pleased to have received the following commitments from the Liberal Party.
Liberal Party of Canada Commitments to the BCWF Highlights:
- to restrict development in our national parks
- to increase science spending in our national parks
- to restore funding to ocean science and monitoring programs
- to fund freshwater research programs
- to invest in migratory bird sanctuaries
- to act on the Cohen Commission recommendations on restoring sockeye salmon stocks in the Fraser River
- to not bring the long gun registry back in.
Please read the full answers from the Liberal Party of Canada for more details.
