Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed Canadians alongside Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson, where the three discussed Canada's plans to cut emissions.

The Trudeau Liberals are looking to see a 42 percent reduction in emissions from the oil and gas sector as a part of the Liberals' plan to meet its 2030 goal.

While taking questions, Justin Trudeau said that ten years were lost in the fight against climate change, due to inaction from the Harper Conservatives.

"We lost ten years on our path to 2030 because for ten years, under the Harper Conservatives, nothing got done on fighting climate change, on reducing emissions from the oil and gas sector, on preparing for the future that everyone saw clearly was coming. That's why the work we have to do... is ambitious, but is also realizable.

"We're going to reach that forty percent cut in Canada's emissions by asking all different sectors, including oil and gas, to be incredibly ambitious, and concrete in their ability to do that. This is the plan that's going to get us to net-zero by 2050, and forty percent by 2030," Trudeau said.

The Toronto Sun reports: Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault announced the Trudeau government will miss the very first deadline contained in its own legislation, the ironically named "Canadian Net-Zero Emissions Accountability Act."

The Act says the environment minister "must establish an emissions reduction plan for 2030 within six months after the day on which this Act comes into force."
