Many of us have become increasingly concerned about the lip-service that Canadian governments pay to climate change mitigation.
Although it is important to spend resources on adaptation, it is not possible to adapt to global temperature increases of 4 degrees C or more.
Canada is not on track to meet the current targets that all levels of government have set. More important, these targets are far from sufficient to meet our Paris Agreement pledge.
It is essential that Canada do its share to prevent a climate crisis.
We must act NOW!
