Prime minister set to visit Victoria on Monday | CBC News

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Victoria on Monday to make an announcement highlighting investments in electric vehicle infrastructure.

The federal budget tabled last week placed a heavy emphasis on transitioning to the green economy, with new investments in critical minerals and metals, expanding the availability of zero-emission vehicles and charging stations.

The new national emissions reduction plan added a goal this month that one in five new cars sold be zero emissions by 2026, rising to 60 per cent by 2030.

That is up from the 50 per cent goal the Liberals set less than a year ago.

Trudeau is also expected to meet with Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps later in the day.
