Trudeau’s empty promises on climate change

In 2019, Justin Trudeau walked in the historic Montreal climate march and promised to act on climate change. And back in 2015, he promised to phase out fossil fuel subsidies.
But under Trudeau, yearly fossil fuel subsidies are up $900 million on average compared to the Conservatives. That’s not counting the $18 billion he’ll spend on the Trans Mountain pipeline.
And Canada’s emissions continue to go up.
Jagmeet Singh:
“Justin Trudeau says the right things about climate change. But instead of actually acting on his promises, he’s protecting big polluters and letting fossil fuel subsidies go up. We can’t afford to wait any longer. It’s time to stand up to big polluters and fight for real climate action.”
