Stories by Green Party Leader Elizabeth May

Agriculture is not immune from the coming climate crisis

In order to pressure other countries to also accept the IPCC advice, Canada must show leadership in the world and ratchet up our current target before COP24.
With its current emissions-reduction targets, Canada is not committed to keeping the Arctic cold enough to ensure the survival of the Inuit.
Banks are ready to continue funding fossil fuels and related infrastructure while missing out on the enormous economic opportunities presented by clean-tech.
Whoever decided that patenting and restricting access to seed was a way to feed the world?
The Trudeau government has only wish lists when it comes to the environment, with no details on how to achieve its goals.
We don't yet have enough information to know if diluted bitumen can be cleaned up at sea, and First Nations were not consulted well enough on the pipeline project.
Under current weak targets, Canada is not committed to keeping the Arctic cold enough to ensure the survival of the Inuit.

Questions remain over whether the U.S. president can withdraw from the trade agreement without support from the rest of the American lawmakers.

Our Arctic strategy must make its top priority keeping the permafrost cold.
Trudeau’s challenge is to keep his eye on the real goal: protecting our children from an unliveable world.
We need to develop a comprehensive dementia strategy. Within 25 years, the number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia could reach 1.3 million and will have the highest economic, social, and health costs of all diseases in Canada.
Pretty bad. Because of the investor-state dispute mechanism, and more.
The Liberals are pledging to get rid of any sections that are dangerous. That’s pretty much the whole bill.
The horrible reality is that the 2016 budget delivers a large deficit, but without the kind of investments necessary to stimulate the economy to ensure the national finances are strong enough in seven years to close the deal. It reminds me of the themed protest of the UN climate negotiations in 2013 in Warsaw. Everywhere you looked were buttons and banners proclaiming 'WTF?' Translation 'Where’s the Financing?'
