ROME – Prior to attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference UK 2021 in Glasgow, Scotland, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attended the G20 summit in Rome on Oct. 30-31. While there, he was asked by a reporter about the pressure to bring down the price of gasoline and oil prices, while reconciling that with a commitment to bring down emissions at the same time.

Trudeau responded, “I think one of the things that it really shows is that we need to invest more in renewables. We need to be thinking creatively and determinately about ways to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. There’s still a lot, a long ways to go, before we can reduce significantly or get to net zero, which we’ve committed to by 2050. But in the meantime, the investments in technology and innovation, pricing mechanisms like the price on pollution that Canada put in, that encourages people to look for alternatives that get them off fossil fuels are the kinds of things that we need to continue to push at home, and around the world, at the same time as we are making sure that people can afford to keep their homes and get around.

“That’s where investments and public transit we’ve been making over the many past years, investments in more zero emission vehicles as Canada is focused on, committed to 100 per cent new vehicle sales being zero emission by 2035. These are all things that will get us through these challenges.”
