The environment cannot be improved through taxation only. There also needs to be an acknowledgement that fossil fuel will be a part of our energy needs for many decades to come. For starters unlock Canada's oil potential by building pipelines to the east (as well as to the west), which will have a lower environmental impact that importing oil.

Could you have a look at the Mandate letter date field in this data set? It seems inconsistent with what is presented on the website.
For instance, we have 18-Aug, which I assume refers to August 28, 2018 letters, but we also see 28-Aug, which likely refers to the letters of the same date.
Furthermore, these entries are coded as dates and, since they are incomplete, excel adds the year automatically and the actual values are 8/18/2019 and 8/28/2019, adding to the confusion and limiting the field's usefulness to further manipulations.
Could we not simply have the exact date of the letters as presented on the website?
