Jeff Passmore, Canadian Club of Rome member, has a letter published in the Globe and Mail in response to the article:
Jeff Passmore responded.
(July 30): Contributor Mary Robinson seems too kind. She states that “Mr. Trudeau risks severely damaging his country’s credentials on climate change.” Whatever “credentials” Canada may have would be completely undeserved.
Decades of successive Liberal and Conservative governments have, despite lofty rhetoric, done almost nothing to reduce Canada’s greenhouse-gas emissions, often choosing instead to prop up fossil fuels.
I fear Ms. Robinson’s call for Canada to “lead from the front” with “ambitious decision-making” will go utterly unheeded.
