Canada accuses Volkswagen of violating environmental law


The Canadian government has accused German carmaker Volkswagen of violating Canadian environmental law on 60 points.

“On December 9, 2019, the Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft was indicted on 60 counts for violating the Canadian Environmental Protection Act of 1999,” the statement on the Canadian government website reads.

The authorities of Canada believe that back in 2008-2015, the carmaker illegally delivered to Canada 128 thousand cars that do not meet established standards for emissions of harmful substances.

The hearing is scheduled for December 13 in a court in Ontario.

Hearings on Dieselgate are in many countries, including the United States, Britain, Australia. In 2015, Volkswagen recognized that 11 million cars worldwide had software that allowed them to manipulate environmental test data.
