More 'Work To Do' To Mobilize Canadians On Climate Change Action: Trudeau

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 11 Jul, 2019
  • More 'Work To Do' To Mobilize Canadians On Climate Change Action: Trudeau

OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he has more work to do to sell Canadians on his vision for more action to fight climate change.

 

Speaking at the annual meeting of the Canadian Teachers' Federation in Ottawa Thursday, Trudeau says it's clear most Canadians deeply care about the environment and want measures to protect it.

 

But this desire hasn't always translated to voting in governments that will take strong action on climate change, he said.

 

He pointed to the election of "climate-denying" governments across the country over the past few years.

 

Trudeau said his government will do much more on the environment, but emphasized the importance of "bringing Canadians along."

 

The prime minister said progress had been made on many fronts during his mandate, including the environment, but that the election of a Conservative government this fall would turn the country in the opposite direction.
