NDP REALITY CHECK: Trudeau’s climate talk not backed up with action

Justin Trudeau's climate change targets won't be ready for UN summit on global warming.

  • National Observer, June 29th 2015

Mr. Trudeau recently fought with preeminent environmentalist David Suzuki, after Suzuki refused to endorse Trudeau’s underwhelming proposals to combat climate change.

  • National Post, September 26th 2015.
  • In government, Liberals promised a 6% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions – then allowed them to rise by at least 30%.
  • National Post, February 5 2007

Trudeau’s climate change plan doesn’t even stack up to the Conservatives:

“The federal Liberals’ position is less definitive than those of the Conservatives, NDP, or Greens…the party has not unveiled its carbon reduction target...

“The position of the federal Liberals on adaptation financing has not yet been revealed.”

Environmental Defence, July 2015

After so many years of Liberal and Conservative failures on the environment that have hurt our quality of life, hurt our economy, damaged the health of our children and our communities, and tarnished our global reputation; Tom Mulcair will make Canada the global leader in the fight against climate change.
