In his speech to world leaders at 2021 UN Climate Change Conference (COP26), Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “In Canada, there was a town called Litton. I say ‘was’ because on June 30th, it burned to the ground. The day before, the temperature had hit 49.6C, the hottest ever recorded. Canada is warming, on average, twice as quickly as the rest of the world.”
PM Trudeau committed Canada to immediately cap oil and gas emissions, and ensure they decreases at a pace and scale that ensures they reach net zero by 2050.
