But virtually every part of the five-year, $10 billion climate-change plan announced with great fanfare last April is "up for review," officials say. The final outcome isn't clear. For the time being, industry people say, it's business as usual: The Conservative policy is still vague but, to the extent it can be deciphered, much seems similar to the Liberals' plan. But there are major differences, too.
