To The Editor:

I will confess that for big projects, I think flow charts are a useful graphic to map the path from start to completion.

In the context of the December 20, 2019 news release from Environment and Climate Change Canada, I noticed part of their statement: … “Canada will develop a plan to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 and will set legally-binding, five-year emissions reductions milestones… “.

Clearly, this represents a very bold climate policy commitment. What I would like to see from the Federal government is a flow chart that describes how their current and future policies will guarantee arrival at that 2050 goal of net-zero.

Currently, there seems to be a focus on the development and expansion of the fossil fuel sector, with support from the Federal government and I wonder how that would fit in to the flow chart.
