Environment Commissioner Scott Vaughan says federal government will likely fall short on 2020 greenhouse gas targets

Ottawa—The federal government still has no solid plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and it’s almost certainly too late for it to recover in time to reach its 2020 goals, says a new environmental audit.

“Although the federal government has begun to lower greenhouse gas emissions, right now the reductions are not happening fast enough to meet the 2020 target,” Environment Commissioner Scott Vaughan said in a report tabled in the House of Commons on Tuesday.
