Letter: When will envirommental targets be met?

If there were no humans living on the planet there would be no pollution

When will envirommental targets be met?

Planet Earth has had better days. Most countries of Mother Earth realizes there is a problem. If there were no humans living on the planet there would be no pollution, so after saying that, people cause this problem.

Canada coal exports to China surged 379.18 per cent to $ 3.50 billion, accounting for 46.33 per cemt of total Canadian exports in 2021. So with that in mind and watching Question Period it looks like Canada wants the population to maybe be as large as China.

So if that’s the case we need more hydro, more fuel production, definitely millions of houses to be built, education to be supplied for free to the ones coming with no skills, health care to be supplied with hundreds to thousands of hospitals to be built, airlines to increase travel capacities worldwide, and infrastructure improvements.

So giving big companies money to pollute, then charging them from there chimneys for polluting and handing out cheques to a few and stating how much that is but never stating how much the government receives is not revealed. With no targets met that tells me this plan is not working. It’s been seven years, I wonder how many more years before a target is met.
