WCS Canada Comments - MOECC Climate Change Discussion Paper - March 2015

Abstract

The Climate Change Discussion Paper was developed by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) to support development of a climate change action plan for Ontario. We outline several recommendations to address climate change mitigation and adaptation even though Ontario is not on track to meet its 2020 target for greenhouse gas emissions. We highlight the importance of Ontario's Far North in climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts and address the questions associated with the discussion paper.

Perpetuating current approaches and proceeding with an “extraction first” mentality is going to have massive climate consequences.
