Trudeau pledges to “diminish the market for fossil fuels” in 20 years

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau believes that the “divisive and fearful narratives” around the world are a result of the perception within the middle class that globalization has no benefits for the ordinary people.

In an exclusive interview to The Guardian (December 15, 2016), Trudeau also reiterated his preference for building pipelines rather than using rail cars to transfer oil. He said that the government invests in developing renewable sources of energy, drives Canadians towards public transit and strives to diminish the market for fossil fuels in the next two decades.

The following are excerpts from the interview:

What we’re facing right now in terms of the rise of populism and divisive and fearful narratives around the world is based around the fact that globalization doesn’t seem to be working for the middle class, for ordinary people… I’m really just focused on… growth that works for the middle class. That defuses a lot of the uncertainty, the anger, the populism that is surfacing in different pockets around the world.

I’ve made very clear that one of the fundamental responsibilities of any Canadian prime minister is to get our resources to market in a responsible sustainable ways, and I’ve used Keystone X.L. pipeline for many years as an example of something I thought was a positive move… replacing rail cars with pipelines is a responsible thing to do

We’re driving people towards public transit by creating better public investments in public transit. We’re doing a whole range of things that will diminish the market for fossil fuels as we develop renewables. That’s the transition we’re looking at. It’s not going to happen in a day or in a week, but it’ll happen over years and perhaps a decade or two.”

On November 29, 2016, the federal government approved two major pipelines: the Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Expansion Project and Line 3 Replacement Project. Speaking with reporters at the conclusion of the APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Lima on November 20, 2016, Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said that he is still supporting the Keystone XL pipeline project, but clarified that the “future process on Keystone” is not in the hands of the Canadian government.
