Weekly Memo

1. WHO-COP26 special report on climate change and health: The Health Argument for Climate Action

The 10 recommendations in the COP26 Special Report on Climate Change and Health propose a set of priority actions from the global health community to governments and policy makers, calling on them to act with urgency on the current climate and health crises.

The recommendations were developed in consultation with over 150 organizations and 400 experts and health professionals. They are intended to inform governments and other stakeholders ahead of the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and to highlight various opportunities for governments to prioritize health and equity in the international climate movement and sustainable development agenda.

On the particular topic of transportation, the report says that “To meet the goals of the Paris agreement, there needs to be a rapid global shift away from vehicles powered by an internal combustion engine, such as through bans on new sales of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030 and bans on their use in highly populated areas, such as city centers, by 2025.”

2. Passing of Catherine Kargas

It is with great sadness that we learned that Catherine Kargas, Electric Mobility Canada’s former CEO and Chair, passed away Saturday after a long battle with cancer. She was only 55 years old. We all will remember her as a brilliant and dedicated person who always worked for the greater good of the planet in general and electric mobility in particular. She has done so much for Electric Mobility Canada hence the fact that she won the Al Cormier award in 2020. On behalf of Electric Mobility Canada, I want to express my most sincere condolences to her family and to Pierre Ducharme, her spouse.
