Climate Change Accountability Delayed
As we told you earlier this week, Bill C-311, the Climate Change Accountability Act, is currently passing through parliament. Yesterday was a crucial vote to move the Bill to Third Reading in the House of Commons. It has been stuck in the House Environment Committee since April.
In yesterday’s vote, the Liberals and Conservatives decided to leave the Bill at the Committee for further study. This decision means that Canada will go to international climate talks in Copenhagen this December without a clear plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Canada is the only country in the world to renounce its climate change commitments under the Kyoto Protocol.
