Statement on COVID-19 Emergency Funding Response

Halifax, NS (March 20, 2020) - Sierra Club Canada Foundation applauds federal government actions and co-operation to stop the spread of COVID-19.

“We encourage our leaders to prioritize economic support to reduce the impact on workers, Indigenous communities, and enhance health and science sectors right now, not fossil fuel corporations," says Gretchen Fitzgerald, National Programs Director.

“We also encourage federal and provincial governments to utilize emergency economic stability funding to ramp up support for renewable energy and efficiency, electrify our transportation sector, and to support public transit and train infrastructure.”
