Canada has a new emissions cap; now it is time for action.

"The best thing about the framework announced last week by the federal government to cap emissions from the oil and gas industry is that it finally exists. Everything else about it needs work. The target of 35 to 38 per cent below 2019 levels is less than what was promised. It’s short on details and seems to leave huge loopholes for the industry to avoid actually lowering emissions. "
