Complete shift to renewable energy within Canada’s reach

Make this an election topic. Point out that[ moving to green energy sources is actually good for the economy]1, and demand that these "doable" steps are implemented.

Seriously. It can be done. It should be done.

In a 56-page policy document scheduled for release on Wednesday, more than 70 scientists, engineers and economists say Canada is in a more favourable position than most countries for a switch to renewable power, including large-scale hydroelectric. The most significant barrier is not technical or economic, but a lack of political will, they said.

The report says 77 per cent of Canada’s electricity is already produced without burning fossil fuels, and it has many sources of renewable energy.
