Liberal MLA David Swann has issued the following statement in recognition of Earth Day:
I’m inviting all Albertans to join me in participating in Earth Day this Sunday.
For nearly 50 years people across the globe have come together on Earth Day to raise awareness and fight for positive change on environmental issues.
This year’s theme is ending plastic pollution. Earth Day Network is asking citizens of the world to pledge to reduce the amount of plastic products they use.
It is of vital importance that we take care of our planet for our own well-being and that of the rich and diverse life that share it with us.
The Alberta Liberals are proud to be the most environmentally responsible party in the Alberta Legislature.
We’ll keep fighting for progress on important environmental issues like wildlife rehabilitation, combating climate change, protecting our watersheds and implementing Extended Producer Responsibility recycling in Alberta.
This Earth Day, let’s all aspire to be better stewards of our planet.
