Canada to Phase out Coal-Fired Electricity by 2030

Canada is announcing a plan to phase out the use of coal-fired electricity by 2030.

The move is in stark contrast to President-elect Donald Trump’s vow to revive the U.S. coal industry.

Environment Minister Kathleen McKenna said Monday that the goal is to make sure 90 percent of Canada’s electricity comes from sustainable sources by that time — up from 80 percent today.

The announcement is one of a series of measures Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government is rolling out as part of a broader climate change plan. Trudeau also has plans to implement a carbon tax.

Trump, in contrast, has also said he would “cancel” the Paris Agreement.

Trudeau told President Barack Obama this past weekend he would miss working with him because he shared so many values.
