Canadians voted for climate action in the last election. The prime minister needs to continue to vigorously defend the policy he ran on and won.
Regardless of the political math, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, pictured Nov. 20, 2019, may feel that he needs to allow weaker systems in all three provinces, in the interest of federal-provincial harmony. But for the country, that will mean less effective climate policies, higher carbon emissions, and provincial unfairness.
