Canada’s New Government Should Advance Clean Energy, Climate Action

WASHINGTON (October 20, 2015) –The following is a statement by Anthony Swift, Canada Project Director at the Natural Resources Defense Council, on the just-concluded federal elections in Canada:

“The new Liberal government in Ottawa has an unprecedented opportunity to move Canada away from the dirty fuels of the past and toward a clean energy future that will bring jobs, prosperity and security for all Canadians. We hope our good neighbors’ new leaders will take real action on climate change by adopting a plan to meet its international climate commitments, stop the destructive expansion of tar sands, and open environmental decision-making to sound science and broad public review.”
