MP Spotlight: What have your environmental champions been up to?
Nathan Cullen has amassed a long, strong record of trying to introduce and pass environmental legislation since he was first elected in 2004. He worked on the Clean Air and Climate Change Act, the Climate Change Accountability Act, the Phthalate Control Act, and the Act to Defend the Pacific Northwest (ban oil tankers on BC’s coast), among others. He has been a vocal advocate for a national public transit strategy, carbon cap-and-trade pricing, improved emission standards and an end to offshore oil and gas drilling in BC. He has served as chair of the NDP’s Green Economy Taskforce, Critic for Natural Resources and Energy, and Critic for the Environment.
