Canada’s Liberal Transport Minister, Omar Alghabra, has voiced plans for Canada’s goal of selling only zero-emission vehicles by 2035.
In other words, gas vehicles will be extinguished!
While some people promote this idea as a turn towards “green energy”, others worry about the detrimental effects on our environment and see this as an attack on the fossil fuel industries in Canada, particularly Alberta.
Have you ever wondered how electric cars are produced? The crucial material for the development of a battery for an electric vehicle is metallic lithium. This is an expensive, non-renewable element that has a massive environmental cost to recover, which is the opposite of what our officials have made it seem.
All forms of resource extraction have negative effects such as “soil degradation, water shortage, loss of biodiversity, damage to ecosystem functions and increased global warming”.
With the combination of environmental damage and child labor associated with this “green energy” idea, it appears that the Canadian transport minister has not been transparent about how he intends to achieve this and how he will address all of these issues surrounding him.
I took to the streets of downtown Calgary to gather public opinion about how people feel about the gas vehicle ban. While the oil and gas industry has been recovering from many hard years of economic downturn, how are the Calgari reacting to this plan?
Would they simply move away from what keeps the province of Alberta moving and thriving in the economy? Are they aware of the harmful effects deriving from the power supply of electric transport?
For a country like Canada that experiences harsh and long winters, does this make sense, when electric vehicles don’t work well in cold weather? If our officials claim electric cars are cleaner, we start asking them about the details of battery manufacturing and the child labor behind it.
