Environmental Questions for Canada's 2019 federal political parties

Canada has a long list of challenges related to the environment, and at Brightspot Climate, our focus is climate change. There are connections from one challenge to another - one such example is last week’s publication of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) report on the status of global biodiversity, which in part spoke to the impact of climate change on biodiversity.

With a federal election coming up in October, 14 leading national environmental organizations sat down together and thought through a concise list of questions pertaining to these environmental challenges that each federal political party should ask themselves as they develop their platforms. Most importantly, this list keeps jobs front of mind with a very pointed question as to how to ensure workers and their families are supported in transitioning towards a more sustainable economy.
