Toronto, ON – In response to the release of Erin O’Toole’s Conservative climate plan, Amara Possian, 350.org Canada Campaigns Director issued this statement:
“Canada, with 0.5 percent of the world’s population, could burn up 16% of the world’s remaining carbon budget, far beyond our fair share and enough to create major climate disruption. Neither Erin O’Toole, nor Justin Trudeau have a climate plan that deals with that.
With Canada’s emissions rising, we’re still stuck in a debate between a bad Liberal climate plan and a worse Conservative one. We need a Climate Emergency Alliance between the Greens and the NDP that delivers a climate plan that meets the scale of this crisis.”
