Nova Scotia NDP Leader Attacks Green Hydrogen Jobs

The leader of Nova Scotia’s NDP has launched an attack on the province’s growing green hydrogen industry and the jobs that go along with it.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, NSNDP Leader Claudia Chender dismissed Premier Tim Houston’s advocacy for green hydrogen in Nova Scotia as “flying to Germany to talk about exporting power in a few decades” and called the entire green hydrogen industry “a speculative venture.” 

Chender’s comments attacking the green hydrogen industry exposes a blatant lack of vision on building up Nova Scotia. Green hydrogen offers an innovative pathway to Nova Scotia's clean energy future.

Nova Scotia has an opportunity to be a world leader in green hydrogen development. By embracing this technology, the province positions itself as a global leader, opening the door to attracting investment and powering the economy of tomorrow. The NDP's stance of clinging to the status quo would leave Nova Scotia behind while the world races toward clean energy solutions.

Chender is off-side of British Columbia’s NDP Premier David Eby who earlier this year announced a green hydrogen project in British Columbia. Speaking of green hydrogen, Eby said, “Clean hydrogen opens a world of opportunities for our province that we’re not taking advantage of yet and are right there for us.”

While Claudia Chender and the NSNDP try to shut down the green hydrogen industry and the jobs that go along with it, Tim Houston’s PC government will continue building up good-paying jobs across Nova Scotia which will benefit Nova Scotians for generations to come.
