Ottawa, Queen’s Park spar over federal plan for more zero-emission vehicles

OTTAWA—The federal government says it will drive ahead with its plan to get more zero-emission vehicles on the road, as Queen’s Park lambasts the strategy after a desired consensus failed to materialize at a meeting of Canada’s transportation ministers in Montreal on Monday.

While federal Transportation Minister Marc Garneau left the meeting touting Ottawa’s goal of seeing zero-emission vehicles account for 100 per cent of new cars sold in 2040, his counterpart from Ontario’s Progressive Conservative government slammed the target as a “reckless” threat to jobs in the province.

Liberal bullshit is poisoning our air and water.
