The city of Ottawa lags on investment in energy conservation and climate action. When the city’s 2018 budget is finalized this week,  the city’s renewable energy strategy, Energy Evolution, is set to again be under-resourced.

With a goal to be the greenest city in the world by 2020, Vancouver is actively working to reduce its carbon footprint by 33 per cent. Montreal has just boosted its carbon reduction target from 25 per cent  to 35 per cent —by 2020.
