CANADA'S DRAFT OIL & GAP EMISSION CAP LEGISLATION IS COMING SOON!
Environment and Climate Change Minister Steven Guilbeault has said the government’s Draft Regulations to Cap & Cut GHG emissions from Oil & Gas production will be released in October. When they are released, Environment and Climate Change Canada will be obliged to hold an online public consultation. Every citizen of Canada, including you, will have the opportunity to submit your comments to that consultation. It’s important for climate concerned citizens to do so in order counter-balance the massive influence of the Oil & Gas lobby.
The Climate Messengers expect to post information here about the Draft Regs a few days after they are released. (We’ll need a few days to read them and think about them). We also expect to post information about issues raised by them that you might want to think about and consider using in your own submissions.
Click below to get an email from us reminding you to come back and look at our material when it’s available, so that you can consider it in making your own submissions.
CMC is looking for volunteers to help us with keeping our government accountable to its commitments. Sign up today and we’ll be in touch!

WHO WE ARE
Climate Messengers Canada was formed after a small group of us came together to fight for major changes to Bill C-12, which is now the Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act. During the process, we realized that we were a great team and that this was just the beginning of our work together in climate action!
Our agile team’s unique mix of diverse skills and experience includes:
~ policy and program analysis
~ communications and technology
~ audio and video production
~ social media engagement
By 29 March of this year, the Environment Minister must establish Canada’s plan to achieve our 2030 Greenhouse Gas emissions reduction target. Before that, he must hold public consultations about what should be in the plan. Those public consultations are occurring between now and 14 January 2022, and they are focused on hearing from regular Canadian citizens like you and us.
Climate Messengers Canada has created a toolkit to assist individuals and other climate organizations to make their own submissions and be heard!
Tackling the climate emergency is a key issue in this federal election. Understanding each party’s climate change platforms is critical as Canadians head to the polls to determine who will lead us through the climate crisis.
You have the power to vote for strong climate action!
The proposed Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act (Bill C-12) is supposed to make the federal government accountable for reaching our greenhouse-gas-reduction targets. This is crucial: Canada has never come close to meeting its targets, while the rest of the G7 countries’ emissions are falling. However, as Bill C-12 stands now, it is woefully weak. The number and degree of its flaws cripple the bill’s ability to hold government accountable. At this point, what we have is the Unaccountability Act.
