  • Background & Resources:  We see several very positive aspects of the EGCCRA, including a commitment to phasing out coal by 2030, the inclusion of an electric vehicle mandate, a commitment to protecting 20 per cent of the province’s land and water by 2030 and a focus on equity as a core principle. We also see some key areas that are weak or missing. We need to ensure we're not undermining our own progress by continuing with outdated industries, fossil fuel extraction and unproven carbon capture technologies. Missteps here will continue to increase our emissions and threaten our ecosystems.
