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