Canada joins forces with California
As the U.S. moves to weaken vehicle emissions standards, Canada has opted to join California in maintaining stronger vehicle emissions standards.
The original standards, designed by the Obama administration and adopted by former Prime Minister Stephen Harper—were a no-brainer, requiring automakers to build increasingly clean, efficient vehicles. However with President Trump opting to roll them back, Canada, along with 13 other U.S. have joined forces to maintain the stronger standards.
As a result, jurisdictions wishing to keep the rules in place now represent a majority of the U.S.-Canada market. It's the right move for emissions and—because it will mean more fuel efficient cars—is also the right move for Canadian's wallets.
