Climate change is both the biggest challenge and the biggest opportunity that Canada has ever faced. While the consequences of failing to address climate change would be catastrophic, our transition to a green, sustainable economy will create good local jobs, shorter commutes, more livable cities, and cleaner air and water.
Our plan is to move to the virtual elimination of fossil fuel use in Canada by mid-century. Our
targets are 40 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. These are ambitious targets, yet the scale and urgency of this challenge demands nothing less. It is time for Canada to take bold climate action.
