“Canada election: Charities warned against climate change ads”

BBC:

Canada’s election watchdog has warned environmentalists that saying climate change is real could break the law.


The issue arose because one party running in October’s election denies climate change is a threat.


That has led Elections Canada to warn groups that running paid advertisements about climate change could be considered partisan activity.


Advocates called the guidance “ludicrous” and say it will dampen urgent climate discussions.
