National Observer: Trudeau Liberals shouldn't shelve $100 billion climate plan
As of Sunday, around 4 million acres have been scorched by wildfires in California, Washington and Oregon.
These fires are a reminder that for all our struggles with COVID-19, climate change remains the number one threat against human civilization.
Yet even now, we can't even acknowledge this reality.
The Liberal government was expected to unveil an ambitious $100-billion green spending plan, plus major changes in environmental regulation in the upcoming throne speech, according to a Global News report.
But now the government seems to have shelved that plan, over fears of being perceived as taking advantage of the pandemic to execute its climate agenda, according to information obtained by Global News.
