Every Party has released their ever evolving platforms on the environment, yet no party has evolved to include the 80 percent. Consumption remains a non-issue in Canadian environmental policy.
Well, we are now well into into Canadian Federal Election 2019, with a diverse range of ideologies being presented on many policies that matter to Canadians. The one constant is that the left believes the world is ending due to climate change… and Canada is the cause… while the right goes from acknowledging the issue, to doubting the science behind Climate Change.
The truth, of course, lies somewhere in the middle. And the one key fact that nobody is talking about remains the single biggest contributor to climate change and pollution in general around the world… Consumption. How is it possible that not one single party includes consumption – the reduction of individual consumption in Canada and globally – as a key part of its climate policy?
Take a look for yourself. Below are links that outline the various environmental policies from each of the main federal parties. We’ve included links to various media outlets to provide a balanced view.
