About The Report
This report documents the ways in which Canada’s oil and gas lobby has undermined federal efforts to address climate change. Emissions from the oil and gas sector have been growing – both per barrel and over all – for three decades, and lobbying by industry has derailed significant pieces of federal climate legislation. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers has published a wish list for Election 2019. This research report reveals that if granted, GHG emissions from the oil and gas sector would use 60 per cent of Canada’s entire 2030 carbon budget under the Paris Agreement.
