Average Rating:

2eab889281886df91601a2553700af87-huge-caOn Tuesday, Canada elected a minority government that is pro-carbon pricing. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a close election yesterday against a Conservative challenger who had promised to dismantle the nation's policies on climate change. Of the popular vote, 65.6% of Canadians voted for parties that support carbon pricing. Of 338 seats in the House of Commons, 67% of them (227 seats) were secured by pro carbon pricing politicians.

The climate crisis was a top issue in the Canadian election for the first time.

"The election results are a resounding endorsement of carbon pricing in Canada," said Cathy Orlando, the National Director of Citizens' Climate Lobby Canada.
