Trudeau's Department of Industry has admitted in an internal memo that the promotion of electric cars is impractical, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
Officials within the department said that in spite of climate goals, it would be entirely unrealistic to make all their vehicles electric. "While an accelerated plan to shift entirely to green energy net-zero emissions is appealing, it is not realistic at this time," wrote the memo.
The memo then listed why it was impossible. "Advancement in the automotive technology is not readily available for all operational requirements."
On top of this, the department noted that there is a "restrictive range capabilities and lack of access to public charging infrastructure in most of Canada remains a challenge; and lack of access to repair networks."
This memo directly contradicts a government plan to make 80 percent of federal vehicles emit zero emissions by 2030.
As the report noted, "to implement net-zero emissions in fleet operations the department must reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by forty percent by 2025."
During the recent election, climate change was a top priority for a significant number of voting Canadians. On top of this, Trudeau has recently vowed to cut coal exports at the historic Glasgow climate conference.
