Canada election winner to set new climate direction

Under the incumbent government, Canada became the first nation to withdraw from the landmark 1997 Kyoto ProtocolAfter nearly two decades of foot-dragging on carbon emissions, the winner of Canada’s upcoming legislative elections will negotiate new CO2 cuts at year-end talks in Paris. Polls show the race is too close to call a week before the October 19 ballot, after a late surge by Justin Trudeau’s Liberals propelled the third-ranked party into the lead ahead of Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Tories and the New Democrats, led by Thomas Mulcair. In May, the Tories announced Canada would seek to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, after admitting it would miss an earlier, less ambitious goal.
