The climate elections
As I wrote at the beginning of last week’s Clean Energy Review, “when it comes to climate change and the clean energy sector, this election could be pivotal.” A week later, the Liberals have a minority government that can govern with the support of other pro-climate parties, and there’s no doubt that climate was on voters’ minds when they made the decision.
Canadians want climate action. If it wasn’t already clear before this election, it certainly is now. Ultimately, being a climate laggard won’t get you enough Xs on the ballot. And as I told the Star, hopefully this will be the last election where whether to go forward or backward on climate change is a significant issue.
