Here is an excerpt from Ecojustice’s assessment of the major party’s platform with respect to climate and the environment published on September 7. If you have not already voted, then please read their full report here.
The 2021 federal election is an opportunity for Canadians to elect the federal government they believe can chart a path toward a sustainable future for this country.
In advance of the upcoming leaders’ debates, the Bloc Québécois, the Conservative Party, the Green Party, the Liberal Party, and the NDP have all released their policy platforms. The platforms outline some big and exciting ideas — and draw attention to the differences between what each party is putting on offer.
Ecojustice is a registered charity, which means we must be non-partisan in our commentary. While we cannot advocate for or against any political party or candidate, we continue to advocate strongly for better environmental laws and policies that will build a safer, healthier, and more sustainable future for everyone in Canada.
Ecojustice is calling on all parties to outline actionable, enforceable steps to fight the climate crisis, reduce pollution, and better protect the air, land, and water we depend on for our survival and well-being. We encourage you to ask your local candidates where they stand on these issues too.
