Canada's federal Conservatives are searching for a new leader. But they are not the country's only political party facing a daunting renewal process following stark electoral defeat.

Six candidates are hoping to lead Ontario's Liberals out of the wilderness following a 2018 rout. The winner, who will be selected by party members next month, could be the leader of Canada's most populous province in two years time, given the slumping popularity of Doug Ford's Progressive Conservative government.

Ford moved quickly to rip up the climate plans of Kathleen Wynne's former Liberal government. Those cuts, along with a whole host of others, are weighing on his ratings. Voters expect the Liberal leader to have a "better than Doug Ford" climate plan. But we wanted to find out from each leadership hopeful just how strong their plans are and how much they will help Canada reach its Paris Agreement targets.
