The Commish has told Justin it's time to get off the pot. No, it's not about weed. It's about climate change, adaptation and mitigation.
Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Julie Gelfand, says Mr. Trudeau's government must stop blathering about climate change and actually do something about it. Gelfand says it's time the government put into effect its plan to curb greenhouse gas emissions and do something to mitigate the climate change impacts, the early-onset impacts, such as damage from wildfires, floods and extreme weather events.
"It's time for change. The federal government needs to start doing the hard work to turn this latest broad framework into tangible and measurable actions," Gelfand concludes in her report.
The government released the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change in December 2016, which was endorsed by all provinces and territories except Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
But instead of presenting a detailed action plan to reach the 2020 target for reducing emissions, Gelfand said the government changed its focus to a new 2030 target.
The government has also failed to adopt regulations to reduce greenhouse gases that could help limit the risks of pollution, natural disasters, forest fires and floods, the audit finds.
I'm sorry Commissioner Julie but Justin is what Barack Obama defines as a "bullshitter." He lays it on thick to sucker Canadians into voting for him and he throws on an extra layer or two as his grand promises turn out to be just a con. Wait, did I say "con"? Why, yes, I did. Trudeau is acting just like the Con, Harper, who preceded him. He says he gets it, promises to fix it and then ignores the whole thing.
Oh well he can still bring a twinkle to Angela Merkel's eye and even Trump gazes on him like he'd give him a go too. I suppose that counts for something but, for the life of me, I can't figure out what.
