Canada’s emissions to GDP are remarkably low. Why won’t our politicians admit that?

Politicians continue to virtue signal when advocating for renewable energy — but sometimes, they omit facts. That might be because the omitted facts fail to support the “virtue” they are promoting, such as a clean green environment, or maybe politicians don’t feel the need to discuss cost versus benefits or other close examinations of their claims. But despite their best efforts, more information keeps coming to light showing why politicians find it necessary to sometimes leave out inconvenient truths. For instance, Canada appears to be leading the world in reducing air pollution while actually being a low emitter of GHGs in respect to our GDP. When have you heard any green-crusading politician mention that?
