Open Letter on Accountability and the Pan-Canadian Framework

Multiple Authors

West Coast Environmental Law joins 33 environmental, justice and community organizations to urge Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Minister Catherine McKenna to institute a robust approach to climate accountability to ensure we do not miss our targets.

True climate accountability is achievable and these steps would need to include: 

  1. Accountability must be enshrined in law
  2. A climate change committee should be a public, not private, entity.
  3. Government must prepare 5-year carbon budgets and/or targets as a focus for expert comment and public consultation.
  4. Mandate of a climate change committee must focus on assessing government progress.
  5. Government duty to table and respond to climate change committee reports.
