The federal price on pollution isn’t going anywhere during the COVID-19 crisis, says Canada’s prime minister, because fighting climate change remains a priority even during a pandemic.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said he will have more information soon about the Trans Mountain pipeline, as fears are raised in B.C. of possible transmission of the coronavirus through resource project work camps.
Trudeau said Monday his government’s price on carbon pollution was “designed to put more money in household pockets,” while Canada continues to “fight pollution and protect our planet.”
“That is something we are going to continue to do,” Trudeau said from Rideau Cottage in Ottawa. “We know that we need to do things to make sure that we’re both supporting families, through ordinary times and through difficult times, and moving forward on continuing the fight against climate change — which remains, even at a time of immediate crisis and pandemic.”
