Federal party leaders make more platform promises

Some pretty bold promises coming from federal parties. The Liberals announced a plan to make Canada completely carbon emission-free by 2050. Green Leader Elizabeth May already had the idea included in her platform. Sixty-five other countries made the same pledge at this week’s UN Climate Summit in New York City. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said if elected, he will repeal changes in taxation made by the Liberals. He promised to reverse the increase to tax rates on small business investments. NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is expected to make a climate change announcement of his own in Winnipeg.
