We’re in a climate crisis.
And from heatwave to wildfires, Canadians are seeing the impacts of that crisis every day.
Canadians need us to act now to keep them safe and healthy from these extreme weather events.
We can’t wait.
That’s why we’re going to train 1,000 new community-based firefighters and help provide them the equipment they need to keep themselves and others safe.
We will help Canadians make their homes more resilient from the impacts of climate change.
And we’ll partner with the private sector to innovate climate adaptation, including by lowering insurance premiums that would save Canadians money.
Canada can’t go backward to the Harper days, when nothing was done to fight climate change and protect our environment.
We have to move forward — for everyone.
