Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has always been singularly focused on his left-wing policy goals. Over the past year, while most world leaders have been preoccupied with the COVID-19 pandemic, our man has found plenty of time to ensure his favourite pet projects get pushed through, such as the climate plan he triumphantly announced last December. Under the plan — titled, “A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy“— roughly 700,000 Canada Greener Homes Grants of up to $5,000 apiece will be made available to Canadians for energy-efficient retrofits to their homes. This could potentially include electric heat pumps, energy-saving windows and doors, insulation and solar panels. The entire grant program will reportedly cost $2.6 billion over seven years. But based on the Trudeau government’s curious definition of fiscal prudence during its six years in power, this number could end up being much higher. Naturally, the federal government will tout the energy-efficient retrofits as another impending accomplishment toward its main goal of protecting the environment.
