YCS Response to PM Trudeau’s Emissions Target - Announced at President Biden’s Climate Summit

April 22, 2021 

"As part of the Arctic, the Yukon is already experiencing the impacts of the climate crisis. While we applaud the increase from Prime Minister Trudeau’s recent budget announcement of 36% emissions reduction to a murky number between 40 to 45%, sadly this goal does not account for the increasing emissions in Canada. Considering that Canada is one of the world's biggest producers of greenhouse gas emissions, our minimum Fair Share would be a 60% emission reduction by 2030. We call on the Federal Government to reassess their target." Coral Voss, Executive Director, Yukon Conservation Society
