At the start of the COP21 meetings in Paris, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a strong statement about Canada’s role in taking climate action.

Trudeau focused on five principles that will guide Canada’s climate policies: strong science, transitioning to a low-carbon economy (including carbon pricing), working with local governments including Indigenous leaders, helping the developing world tackle climate change, and viewing climate change as an opportunity for new ideas.
