by Guy Dauncey FRSA, PIBC (Hon)

What could the government of Canada do if its Ministers, MPs and civil servants really understood the severity of the climate emergency and the urgency of the need?

This paper shows how we could target a 65% reduction in emissions by 2030 and 100% by 2040. It proposes 164 new policies and programs, financed by $63 billion a year in new investments, without raising taxes or increasing public sector borrowing.

The new programs and policies are announced every Monday morning between January 6th and the end of June.

A Gentle Reminder from Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada
The views of our guests are not necessarily our views. One of CCL’s Core Values is Integrity and we listen carefully. The call this month with Guy Dauncey and in January 2020 with Dr. Dianne Saxe were to help us prepare to lobby our MPs in May. Our lobbying focus has been for almost 10 years and will continue to be improving Canada’s carbon pricing policy.

But we are not myopic. Thus, we really appreciate our volunteers taking the time to open their imaginations to the grand overview of what should be done in Canada and for Guy Dauncey showing us a path forward.
