Canada’s primary Conservative Party members have dismissed a proposal to add climate change to their policy. It seems that Canada still doesn’t recognize that “climate change is real”.

During a virtual conference on Saturday, the proposal to add Climate Change to the policy book was rejected by 54 percent of delegates , keeping it as “willing to act” on it, according to results published online.

The resolution, if it would have been added, could put more responsibility on “highly polluting” companies to cut down greenhouse gas emissions and backing innovation in green technologies.

The result came just a day after party leader Erin O’Toole urged fellow Conservatives they must “change” if they are to expand the party’s base.

He also added that the members can no longer “ignore the reality of climate change” if they want to oust the minority government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in possible snap elections in the coming months.

“The debate is over, climate change is real,” O’Toole stressed in further remarks during a session on Saturday. “We will have a serious and comprehensive plan on climate change to reduce emissions.

“It’s important to me as a father of young children. As a member of parliament, climate change, and fighting it, is important to the Conservative Party of Canada. Younger voters expect that from us.”

Carbon tax

In any case, the Conservative chief also emphasized his resistance to a carbon tax the Trudeau government imposed in 2019 in a move to curb pollution.

O’Toole, in the leadership position since August, offered no details of what he said would be an intense new arrangement to change that tax, which is strongly gone against in western Conservative strongholds.

Conservative leaders have shown that they have no intention right now to attempt to push out the Trudeau government – given the difficulties presented by the Covid pandemic – but the pressure to call early elections recently growing.

The Conservatives presently control 120 of the 338 seats in the House of Commons with the Liberals holding 154.
