What does a real Just Transition require from Canada?

If Summer 2021 has made anything clear, it's that we can no longer deny the truth: climate change is a present day threat, not a distant probability; Canada’s economy needs to decarbonize fast, given how much of our activities contribute to climate change; if we successfully tackle climate change, oil and gas will soon be energy sources of the past, as the historically pro-oil International Energy Agency recently confirmed; inequalities are at an all time high, and Indigenous, racialized, disabled and low-income communities have suffered the most from the COVID-19 pandemic.
