On Trudeau’s failure to act towards slowing down climate change

Standard

“ I was part of the wave of hope that ushered in Justin Trudeau as Canada’s prime minister in 2015. I applauded Canada’s commitments to the Paris Agreement, especially our country’s push to limit the average global temperature increase to 1.5 C. But since Paris, Prime Minister Trudeau has approved two oil pipelines and one of Canada’s largest carbon dioxide-emitting liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects, virtually ensuring that Canada will not meet its own climate targets. As the new US president works to dismantle hard-won climate initiatives south of our border, a clear and effective approach to climate change in Canada is more important than ever. ”
