New Democrats Push Conservatives to Get Real on Environment


The NDP is proposing a series of comprehensive changes to Bill C-30 that re-commits Canada to meet its Kyoto Protocol commitments in the short-term, and ensures a comprehensive plan to meet science-based and internationally recognized medium and long-term goals as well.

"We think it needed to be completely rewritten and if I can borrow a football analogy today, the Conservatives really fumbled the ball here on the whole issue of air pollution and climate change, and we're going to pick it up and run with it," Layton told The Globe and Mail's Jane Taber, co-host of Question Period.

I hope the Tories take into consideration alot of the NDP proposals....I actually like alot of it, although obviously some parts should be revised.

Maybe if the dems backed by republican figures like John McCain can force emssions standards through congress our govt will be more willing as the potential american competition in manufactering will be in the same pickle as our sector.

phill - in the spirit of bi-partisanship, I want compliment you.
