A Climate Election Guide for a World On Fire

Wednesday October 09, 2019

In the lead-up to the Canadian federal election, we analyzed the climate plans for the four major political parties. 

Our research reveals that none of the parties’ platforms do enough to stop the expansion of the oil and gas industry, and that without adequate supply-side policies to stop new expansion projects, Canada will not be able to meet the level of ambition called for by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or limit climate change to 1.5°C of warming.

The report assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the climate plans for the Conservative Party, the Green Party, the New Democratic Party, and the Liberal Party, and outlines what candidates can do to become true climate leaders.
