The “Green New Deal” from Wikipedia: “the term is used to describe any stimulus package that aims to address both financial crises and environmental issues such as climate change. The term references the New Deal, the social and economic stimulus package undertaken by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression.”
The term used now is for a proposed economic stimulus package that aims to address climate change and economic inequality. In Canada, various organizations operating under the banner “Green New Deal Canada” are cooperating to facilitate “town hall” meetings across the country. Curious? In Smithers, a “town hall” is happening Thursday, June 6, 7 p.m. at the Old Church.
