Post Paris Agreement: we need an ambitious Canadian climate plan
At the end of the day, the first ministers' report in November will tell us whether our governments have been listening to Canadians. Équiterre will continue to be a strong voice in this conversation to make sure Canada ratifies the Paris agreement armed with a strong Canadian climate plan to meet our commitment to the international community.

To reduce emissions, Canada needs to drive a transition towards zero and low-emissions transportation modes, increase the use of cleaner fuels in Canada, increase public transit ridership, and encourage denser, mixed-use communities.
