Justin Trudeau, Liberal Party leader, won with a majority in 2015, but he will receive fewer votes in the 2019 federal election in Canada, according to polls. That doesn’t mean he’s going to lose his parliamentary seat.
The first leaders debate on City TV News channel was held early in September, but Trudeau skipped it. His latest interview with Global News discussed the climate crisis where Canada’s climate goals have yet to be achieved. Trudeau insisted on reaching them by 2030.
Yesterday, world leaders including US President Donald Trump attended the United Nations climate summit in New York. The leaders concluded that they all have a duty to pitch money towards the goals of UN sustainable development and renew the agenda.
But to set an example for the rest of the world, especially during this election, we need our leaders to focus on Canada and the environment in this country.
Among other platforms for the election includes Canada’s Green Party, which has a strong chance to be successful now and in the election of 2023.
In the meantime, leader of the Conservative party, Andrew Scheer, was the first to put out his policy on climate change. He and his team also used all kinds of anti-liberal attack ads.
Under Trudeau’s leadership, Canada has yet to fulfill its climate goals and this takes voters from the Liberal Party to other parties.
