Labour and Climate Change

The Canadian Labour Congress today submitted to the Parliamentary Committee looking at Bill C-30, the Clean Air Act which deals with greenhouse gas emissions. Our brief sets out a broad labour perspective on climate change issues – focusing on the need for a planned transition to a more environmentally sustainable economy. Labour supports sticking with Kyoto, deeper emissions reduction targets moving forward, a cap and trade system for large industrial emitters, investment in green industrial strategies, and Just Transition for affected workers.

  • Hi Andrew,
    thanks for the update. I am glad to see the CLC on board. Although the document is silent on Nuclear, and I know the CLC environmental policy has not gone to convention yet, what is your take in where nuclear is in the mix? I live in the Bruce and well we sometimes get mixed messages about nuclear.
