After denouncing the previous Tory government’s plan, Liberals copy it

Federal Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna finally admitted the painfully obvious on Sunday.

She acknowledged the Trudeau Liberals are not going to toughen Stephen Harper’s targets for reducing industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked to climate change.

This means that after years spent in opposition attacking as inadequate Harper’s targets of lowering GHG emissions to 17% below 2005 levels by 2020, and to 30% by 2030, the Liberals are adopting them.
