In its 2030 Emissions Reduction Plan, the Federal Government pledges to make it easier for Canadians to switch to electric vehicles, promising millions for charging infrastructure, and incentive programs for purchasers of electric vehicles.

It refers to the benefits of hybrid and electric buses, major public transit projects, like the Ontario Line, and notes that active transportation is a zero-emission, healthy transportation alternative.

Will these pathways to decarbonizing transportation be a just transition to a sustainable, resilient urban future?
