Federal Conservative leadership candidate Pierre Poilievre stressed his commitment to repealing three pieces of legislation that the Liberal government enacted with the goal of combating climate change during a visit to Saskatchewan on Friday.

“Right now, we have anti-energy laws in this country that are preventing people from harvesting our resources and bringing them responsibly to market,” Poilievre said during a news conference at Brandt Tractor in Regina.

Along with a commitment to repealing Bill C-69, the nation’s current environmental assessment law, and Bill C-48, a bill prohibiting oil tankers of a certain size docking along B.C.’s north coast, Poilievre said he’d move to scrap the federal carbon pricing scheme.

These pieces of legislation have been cornerstones in the Liberal government’s plan to deal with climate change, but have being widely criticized by the energy industry.
