Now, just over a year later, Trudeau says Canada will continue to work with the U.S. and its interest groups to tackle climate change and promote clean growth, dethough Trump has pulled out of the deal. The environment minister told CBC News this week that she believes there will be a plan by the fall if Canada intends to ratify the Paris Agreement. In his opening remarks at the UN ceremony on Friday, Trudeau said the Paris agreement would be presented to parliament next month and formally ratified later this year.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed the Paris Agreement on climate change this morning at a ceremony at the United Nations in New York, giving his word that Canada will use the power of renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Although a signatory to the 2004 Kyoto accord, the precursor to the Paris climate agreement, the Harper government did nothing to implement its commitments and shocked the world in 2011 by withdrawing completely from the UN process, with Greenpeace calling Canada a “climate criminal.” But our North American neighbor decided on Thursday to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. While it remains to be seen how this could actually affect Trudeau`s plans, the prime minister has already reacted to Trump`s decision. Canada is one of nearly 200 countries that are signatories to the Paris Climate Agreement. The signatories promise to achieve net-zero emissions from 2050 and 2100. The overall objective of the agreement is to prevent global temperatures from rising by less than 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels in order to avoid the most disastrous effects of sea level rise. The Paris Agreement, which entered into force in November 2016, was created to adapt to climate change with the aim of reducing emissions.

According to Trump, who called global warming “mythical,” the deal penalizes the U.S. and “allows American workers — whom I love — and taxpayers to absorb costs in the form of lost jobs, lower wages, closed factories and sharply reduced economic output.” The United States took place on the 4th It officially withdrew from the Paris climate agreement, nearly three years after President Donald Trump announced the country`s withdrawal from the international agreement. President-elect Joe Biden has promised to return to office the day he takes office. Canada sent 383 delegates to Paris – more than Britain (96), the United States (148) and almost as many as host France (396). .
