Climate Change & the Environment plateformes

Voici ce que les candidats Fort Garry, et leurs partis, promettent.

Liberal

  • Create a $300M fund for environmental restoration, green retrofits, agricultural emissions reductions programmes, wind and solar power, and EV charging stations

    "To grow a greener province, a Manitoba Liberal Government will create a $300-million Green Fund that will support Manitobans in restoring the environment, offering energy-saving retrofits and ultimately fighting climate change.

    Manitoba Liberals will renegotiate a deal with the Federal Government to redirect a portion of the revenue from the pollution pricing plan so that we can set our own conditions. In addition, we will establish new green building codes for both new builds and retrofits.

    The Green Fund will be partially funded by Efficiency Manitoba, Manitoba Hydro, and a redirected portion of the revenue from the pollution pricing plan.

    Eligible projects under the Green Fund will include, but are not limited to:

    » Efficiency programs for producers to reduce the impact of agricultural greenhouse emissions, such as N02;

    » Residential and commercial green retrofits to reduce home energy costs including to the removal of radon and replace lead water pipes;

    » Increasing wind and solar power generating stations across the province;

    » Increasing the number of EV charging stations." — Dougald Lamont & the Manitoba Liberals — Real Choice, Real Change

Energy generation

  • Accelerate approvals for wind turbine installation on already degraded sites such as garbage dumps when such sites are suitable for wind turbine development

Around 31% of the province’s greenhouse gas emissions are generated by the transportation sector." — pcmanitoba.com, retrieved 2023-09-17

NDP

  • Help 5,000 families install geothermal heating and cooling with no up-front cost

    "A Manitoba NDP government will help 5,000 families switch to geothermal heating and cooling. Through Efficiency Manitoba, families will be able to get a new geothermal system with no up-front cost and no need to find an installer. This plan will lower energy bills for families by up to 50%, on top of the NDP’s commitment to freezing monthly hydro bills. Geothermal energy has proven to be a simple, affordable and efficient home energy solution, but under the PC government, it’s been underutilized.

    By hiring local, qualified contractors to install more geothermal systems, the NDP’s energy plan will create 1,000 clean energy jobs per year across the province." — mbndp.ca, 2023-09-20
