As noted yesterday, the Conservatives are particularly fixated on the fact that the NDP’s commitment to cap-and-trade was detailed in “black and white” in the party’s platform. In fairness, it is a standard Jim Prentice once held the Harper government to.
It is right there in black and white in our platform, and we have now made a commitment in this area. We will implement a North American cap and trade system for greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric pollution, and we will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020. These major commitments represent more than any other party has done.
Here, again, is everything you need to know about the Conservative farce.
