THE PROBLEM

Canada is falling behind on reducing transportation emissions because we continue to build car-dependent infrastructure instead of investing in public and active transportation alternatives. Despite pledges to shift to making electric Vehicles (EVs), the auto industry is lobbying hard behind closed doors against clean car regulations so they can keep profiting from rising emissions by selling more and more gas-guzzlers.

The Solution

We can make electric cars more affordable and accessible by implementing a Clean Car Standard - which would ban the sale of gasoline cars by 2035 and fine the big car companies that fail to shift their business plans to an electric car future. Canada can also reduce car dependency by investing in clean transportation alternatives like public transit and cycling. This will create more sustainable cities by supporting dense, walkable, transit-oriented communities.
