A question for the Government on Earth Day

Posted 4/22/2009 by Grant Mitchell


Today, it is International Earth Day. Canada still does not have a credible climate change policy, even though the United States will have a law creating their cap and trade system by the end of the year. I asked the Government what they are doing to prepare Canadians for this American led system.

Here's my question:

I wonder whether the leader might say when we will see concrete action, not endless rhetoric, and focus on developing a cap-and-trade policy that will allow us to prepare our businesses and farmers for what is the inevitable American cap-and-trade policy. If we are not ready in a year from now, such a policy will overwhelm our businesses, our economy and our farms.
