Green 13 signs on to Joint Mandate Letter to PM Trudeau after 2019 election
As a member of Climate Action Network Canada we are counting on the Government of Canada, under the eadership of PM Trudeau, to act immediately on five key priorities:
1. Listen to scientists. Set science-backed climate targets and limit warming to 1.5°C.
2. Create mechanisms to keep government accountable and on track to meet our climate
3. Ensure a just transition for workers by collaborating with communities. 4. Redirect investment away from fossil fuels and towards clean energy: eliminate fossil fuel subsidies, stop expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure. 5. Fully implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Respect free, prior and informed consent.
The mandate letter was delivered to PM Trudeau on Nov. 1 '19. Read the full letter here.
