This is a pretty good read. Again, for the Conservatives - pretty vague in terms of commitment.
Libs and NDP seem to be promising a lot, but we've seen what happens with promises. As it is, Conservatives are not doing enough for climate change.
June 19: Scheer reveals a climate plan with $2.5 billion worth of pledges, which he says will focus on “tech, not taxes.” This plan includes a vow to repeal the tanker ban and energy project impact assessment changes put in place by the federal Liberals and vows to create a new set of emissions standards.
Sept. 13: Scheer promises to bring back the public transit tax credit, which the party says is part of its environmental plan.
Sept. 14: Scheer says a Conservative government would cancel the carbon tax.
Sept. 25: Tories promise to provide eligible households with a 20 per cent refundable tax credit for green improvements to their homes of between $1,000 and $20,000 as part of a two-year program.
March 19: Liberals table the federal budget, outlining a series of promises pegged on re-election. Some key promises include the creation of a Canadian Drug Agency, $300 million in incentives for those buying zero-emission vehicles and help with cheaper mortgages for first-time homebuyers.
June 10: Trudeau announces Liberals will ban “harmful” single-use plastics, such as forks and takeout containers, by 2021.
Sept. 24: The Liberals promise that, if re-elected, they will implement “legally binding” targets to make Canada’s carbon emissions net-zero by 2050. They do not include details of how they plan to do that or if penalties would be put in place.
Sept. 25: Liberals pledge to provide homeowners and landlords with an interest-free loan of up to $40,000 to pay for environmental retrofits, create a Net-Zero Homes Grant of up to $5,000 for people who buy newly built homes certified as zero-emissions, spend $100 million on skills training for workers to conduct energy audits, retrofits and net-zero home construction, create a low-cost national flood insurance program and a national plan to help relocate homeowners in high-risk flood zones, spend $150 million to complete flood mapping in every province and territory and design a disaster assistance benefit through the employment insurance system. This pledge also includes a promise to cut taxes for clean technology companies.
Sept. 26: Trudeau pledges that one-fourth of Canada’s land and one-fourth of its oceans will be given protected status by 2025, and 30 per cent by 2030, under a re-elected Liberal government.
Sept. 27: Trudeau promises that a re-elected Liberal government would pay to plant two billion trees over the next decade as part of a wider $3-billion effort to use nature to combat climate change, and exceed the targets laid out under the Paris Agreement.
Oct. 8: Trudeau promises to help northern, remote and Indigenous communities transition from diesel power to renewable energy sources by 2030.
May 13: Singh outlines a plan for climate change, saying he would help cut Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions almost in half over the next decade and leverage the federal government’s procurement purchasing power to prioritize investments in clean technology companies and converting federal fleets to use zero-emission vehicles.
Sept. 14: Singh says an NDP government would establish cash incentives to encourage new car buyers to buy zero-emission cars built in Canada.
Sept. 22: Singh says the NDP would expand federal funding by $2.5 billion to help communities respond to disasters and adapt infrastructure to withstand floods and other extreme weather events.
Sept. 24: Singh says an NDP government would build a cross-Canada corridor to carry clean energy. The NDP leader also pledges to convert all public transit systems in Canada to electric vehicles by 2030.
Sept. 27: Singh pledges to create a $40-million plan to help safeguard Canada’s coastlines, creating a fund to protect salmon, reinforce the coast guard and clean up abandoned vessels.
