Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is entitled to his opinions on Canada’s lack of action in reducing industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked to climate change.
But he’s not entitled to his facts.

He blamed the Conservatives.
“We cannot undo the last 10 years of inaction,” he said.
In journalism, this is known as a statement that is accurate but not true.
