Canada: Trudeau moves forward with fertilizer reduction climate policy, ag ministers express ‘profound disappointment’

Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau has decided to move forward with his cap on nitrogen emissions by reducing fertilizer use even as provincial Agriculture Ministers beg him to stop, reports Thomas Lambert in a news story published by The Counter Signal.

As per a Government of Saskatchewan news release, both the Alberta and Saskatchewan Ministers of Agriculture have expressed “profound disappointment” in Trudeau’s decision to attempt to reduce nitrogen emissions from fertilizer.

As previously reported by The Counter Signal, in December 2020, the Trudeau government unveiled their new climate plan, with a focus on reducing nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer by 30% below 2020 levels by 2030.

Thomas Lambert writes that that plan is now coming into effect — though the government refuses to acknowledge that nitrous oxide emissions can be reduced without reducing fertilizer use.

Farmers Forum now wonders if Trudeau is intentionally trying to cause a food shortage — which he previously told Canadians to prepare for.
