The 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (or COP21 for short) is about to kick off in Paris tomorrow and will run until December 11th. We’ve all heard about it in the news lately I’m sure, especially as Prime Minister Trudeau has invited opposition party leaders and premiers to attend the event, showing that Canada should be all-in on the climate issue. Even though Trudeau is going into this conference with the same climate plan as the previous government, his attitude says a lot and I’m really hoping to see a Canadian government with a more open-mind at this year’s talks.
For those of you that didn’t make it out to the advanced polls to vote, Monday will be your last chance to have your say in the Federal election! Make sure you get out there to vote. Here’s my round-up of the urban-centric portions of each party’s campaign platform, plus a few of my comments below.
