A Real Made In Canada Green Plan

Posted on Monday, November 20 at 15:34 by eugene
* To rename the act the Healthy Air and Climate Act, indicating that Kyoto Protocol targets, which were absent from the original bill, would become a key priority of the revised act; * To set targets that Canada must meet, such as the Kyoto Protocol 2008 to 2012 targets, an 80 per cent reduction in emissions below 1990 levels, by 2050; * To set interim targets at five year intervals between 2015 and 2050; * To give new authority to the environment minister that would allow him or her to designate significant areas under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act; * And a "just-transition fund" to help the automobile move from voluntary to mandatory targets. The proposed changes would effectively gut the Conservative legislation as it currently stands. http://plawiuk.blogspot.com/2006/11/real-made-in-canada-green-plan.html
