Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson said that the Trudeau Liberals and the coming Biden Democrats have agreed that zero emission vehicles need to hit the streets sooner, the minister said in an interview with Reuters.

The minister went so far as to suggest that a ban on new gasoline powered vehicles could come to fruition.

Wilkinson said that he is looking forward to working with the new American administration to do “what the European countries and Quebec and British Columbia have done, which is to put a date at which they will no longer allow the sale of internal combustion engines."

“I think we can collectively come up with mechanisms that will help both countries make progress on climate change," Wilkinson continued.

Wilkinson recently said at a press conference that he was inspired to join politics due to threats to the global climate, along with the future of his two young daughters.

What Wilkinson did not say, however, is that he and his staff took more than $106,000 worth of flights in 2020.

According to Blacklock's Reporter, Wilkinson's flights  Wilkinson's flights, including his political aides and department executives amounted to $106,515 with flights to cities across Canada.

In a trip to Madrid last year for an international discussion on climate change, Wilkinson and his team spent $683,278, of which over a quarter ($178,282) was spent on greenhouse-emitting travel expenses such as airfare, taxis, and chauffeured cars.
