Climate Change Policy

Posted 11/4/2010 by Grant Mitchell


Here is a question I asked in the Senate about the government's climate change policy and its links U.S. decision making.

Honourable senators, I will ask this question nicely.

The government established cap-and-trade and certain 2020 targets as our Canadian climate change policy, not because it was good for Canada but because the U.S. was taking many of the same measures and they thought we should follow the U.S.

Now that the power structure of the government in the U.S. has changed more to the Republican side, unfortunately, will this government continue with what policies it has, such as they were; with what targets they had, such as they were; or will they wait until the U.S. tells them what to do next?
