I’ve known Hon. Richard Brown since he was a city councillor in Charlottetown in the 1990s; later on our work lives overlapped when he was working as a systems engineer in the public service and I was working with government on its website. Today he’s both the Member of the Legislative Assembly for my district in downtown Charlottetown and the Minister of Environment, Energy and Forestry.
As part of my climate change blogging project, I sat down with Minister Brown yesterday at his office in the Jones Building for a conversation about climate change and renewable energy on Prince Edward Island.
You can watch the video of the interview, Energy and Climate Change on Prince Edward Island: Hon. Richard Brown; it’s long, and we ramble around a lot, but watch the whole thing and you’ll get a good handle on the current government’s take on climate change, renewable energy options for PEI, and how the Island is planning to work within the Atlantic region on longer-term energy projects.
