HON. CATHERINE MCKENNA (Minister of Environment and Climate Change): We have to be ambitious, we know this. And we need to take concrete actions, and this is exactly what you’re seeing here right now.

CLAIRE PERRY (UK Minister of State for Climate Change and Industry): This isn’t a pilot project.  This feels like a very firm commitment being made by many, many countries and players.

Nathan Obed (President of the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami): This coal phase-out will have very positive impacts for Canadian Inuit, and for the Arctic as a whole.

Nicolas Hulot (French Minister of Ecological and Solidary Transition): I just want to thank Canada and also the United Kingdom for this initiative, gathering those countries which want to leave coal behind. We will also do the same.

Dr. Courtney Howard (President-Elect of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment): Tackling climate change could be the biggest global health opportunity of the 21st century. 

Jean Lemire (Émissaire du quebec aux changements climatiques et aux enjeux nordiques et arctiques): Pollution has no frontiers, so let’s work together and make this alliance a great, great signal to the rest of the world.
