Since taking office as Canada’s Prime Minister on November 4, Justin Trudeau has taken steps towards what Elizabeth May of the Green Party called “fixing what Harper broke” . An interview with Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion in the Globe and Mail (Nov. 12) makes clear that climate change issues are to be woven into decision-making in all ministries, and Dion also states that the government is committed to slashing fossil fuel subsidies, building green infrastructure and mass transit, and providing green investment funding. On November 13, the Ministerial Mandate Letters were made publicly available, outlining the cross-Ministry priorities of climate change: for example, the Letter to the Minister of Finance includes “Work with the Minister of Environment and Climate Change in creating a new Low Carbon Economy Trust to help fund projects that materially reduce carbon emissions under the new pan-Canadian framework”. Also on November 13th, Trudeau called for a moratorium on crude oil tanker traffic for B.C.’s North Coast . This is generally seen as the end of the Northern Gateway pipeline, as explained in The Tyee . And for the first time since 1958, the Prime Minister of Canada addressed labour leaders at a meeting at the Canadian Labour Congress on November 10 ; climate change was one of the topics discussed.
