Dr. John Hollins, past Chair CACOR Board of Directors, expresses great concern.
Canada hosted an ad hoc international conference in Toronto in 1988. The participants proposed a target. The Prime Minister of Canada stated his intention in Rio in 1992. The Government of Canada made a legally binding commitment in Kyoto in 1997. It made similar commitments in Copenhagen in 2009 and in Paris in 2015. Canada has missed the commitments that have fallen due by wide margins; it is on track to do the same with the Paris agreement.
