Exploring and exploiting the natural resources in Québec’s soil
Resolution #21 : Exploring and exploiting the natural resources in Québec’s soil (Official French version)
"Sustainable development” should not mean “Zero development”. Funding our social programs and our living standards depends on the responsible exploitation of our natural resources. That's why a government of the Conservative Party of Québec will lift any existing moratorium on the exploration and exploitation of mineral, gas, and oil resources in Québec’s territory, and will allow Energy East to become reality, as long as they all respect our current environmental standards. In order to mitigate the environmental impact of the hydrocarbons these projects will produce, all proceeds coming from them will be invested into our public transit networks.
