Re: Two planes too many, Dec. 6 letters.
A recent letter submitted in response to my “Individual efforts add up” letter noted that Justin Trudeau used two airplanes in the election campaign.
Just to clear the air (pardon the pun), yes it is correct that the Liberal Party were the only party to use two airplanes in their leader’s election campaign.
However, if you research this further, you will find several media reports all stating the same thing.
The Liberal Party, the New Democratic Party and the Green Party purchased carbon offsets to balance their emissions.
The travel of these three party leaders was carbon neutral. The Conservative Party did not purchase offsets and was not neutral.
This comment is not meant to be interpreted as a political statement. That is not the purpose.
As you know from my previous letter, it originates out of a concern for the health of our planet and a desire to ensure all the facts are known and any misinformation is dispelled.
