Hon. Keith Ashfield (Fredericton, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, recently the Prime Minister launched the national conservation plan while he was in my riding of Fredericton. This plan will help to secure ecologically sensitive lands, support voluntary conservation and restoration actions and strengthen marine and coastal conservation. The plan will also expand opportunities for partners to improve the land and water around them. We also have programs already in place that help support these initiatives.
For example, in Fredericton last week we announced we were making further investments through a program that would help post-secondary students gain work experience, while conserving the environment.
Our government will continue to build on these conservation programs and announce new initiatives as we focus and coordinate our efforts far into the future.
