The government argues that the provinces that were actually signed in Paris by the Vancouver and Ottawa Declaration can now ratify the agreement without any detailed plan. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pushed countries to ratify the Paris agreement ahead of the November 8 U.S. presidential election, hoping to suspend the terms of the agreement for at least four years. The pioneering pact, which calls for limiting global temperature rise to well below two degrees Celsius this century, will not enter into force until 55 countries have officially ratified 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Members of Parliament approved late Wednesday a motion supporting both the UN agreement and the federal province`s declaration in Vancouver last March that Required Canada to take the joint action needed to reduce its Paris commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% from 2005 levels by 2030. , « to accomplish or to surpass. » Despite these criticisms, McKenna said Wednesday afternoon in an interview with reporters that it was a « really great day » for Canadians, a step forward after 10 years of « inaction » on climate change under the Harper government. The ratification of the Paris Agreement also supports the Vancouver Declaration, in which the Canadian Prime Minister agreed at the March meetings to review market mechanisms for carbon pricing in their own countries. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has promised to abolish the agreement, but it may be four years before the United States pulls out. If he wins in November, Trump could undermine the deal by ending funding promised to developing countries and undermining environmental laws to meet U.S. emissions reduction commitments.
Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion also appeared to shake off Tory`s concerns about carbon prices, which led him to vote late in the evening against the Paris agreement. « I think the Paris Agreement is an improvement over other agreements that have been introduced, » Michelle Rempel, Conservative MP for Calgary Nose Hill, told reporters in Ottawa on Wednesday afternoon. « The proposal before the Assembly today is not just about the Paris agreement. It is really, I think, a tacit endorsement of the government`s proposed new tax on Canadians, which I do not support for two reasons. « The Prime Minister says the Vancouver Declaration gives him the moral authority to impose carbon tax theft on Canadians, » he said. « So if you have such a disagreement on the interpretation of the Vancouver Declaration, how could anyone support that statement? » The preamble to the Paris Agreement highlights a wide range of issues and priorities that must be taken into account in implementing the agreement and implementing measures to combat climate change. This includes recognizing that, as part of climate change measures, the parties must respect, promote and take into account their respective human rights and indigenous peoples` rights obligations.
