Critics are speaking out following a warning from an Elections Canada official that discussing the perils of climate change during the upcoming federal campaign could be deemed partisan activity.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday afternoon that, while he respects the role of Elections Canada to apply electoral law, it's frustrating to him that there are still politicians who don't believe in climate change.

"I think the whole question highlights the fact that it is so frustrating that there are still conservative politicians in this country who don't believe climate change is real," Trudeau said in a press conference.
