On Tuesday, the Liberal government announced they want to speed up their goal of seeing every light-duty vehicle sold in Canada be electric. Omar Alghabra the Trasport Minister said by 2035, every single new car and light-duty truck sold in the country will be zero-emission vehicles.
Previously, the government set 2040 as the target for making the switch to electricity. The reason for the change is because Alghabra read a recent report from the Paris-based International Energy Agency. The report says by 2035, nearly all light-duty vehicle sales would have to be eclectic to reach net-zero emissions by mid-century.
Canada has also committed their economy to not emit greenhouse gas emissions or offset this pollution causing climate change by 2050. Other than oil and gas, the next biggest contributor of greenhouse gas emissions in Canada is light-duty passenger trucks and cars together.
