Kyoto: Conservative Party, even more responsible than the Liberals for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions

pej news - Joan Russow PhD Global Compliance Research Project- Conservative Party (Reform, Canadian Alliance), along with their fossil fuel corporate supporters, has been and continues to be even more responsible than the Liberals for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

In December 2006, the Canadian Parliamentary Committee on the Environment has been addressing the need to comply with obligations under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol of the Framework Convention on Climate Change. On December 7, 2006 in the Parliamentary Committee, the four Conservative members did everything they could to undermine any resolve to comply with the Kyoto Protocol. They were even opposed to the Environment Commissioner?s being required to issue a report on the progress in implementing the Kyoto Protocol. [so much for the Conservative concern for ?accountability?]. Fortunately, the seven members representing the opposition parties were able to succeed in passing provisions related to the Kyoto Protocol.

Oil Sands Threaten Canadian Water Resources

WWF
- Canada is not prepared to manage the impacts of climate change on freshwater resources, according to a new report by the Sage Centre and WWF-Canada. The report released today, ?Implications of a 2?C global temperature rise on Canada?s water resources: Athabasca River and Great Lakes as case studies,? shows that Canada?s seemingly endless freshwater supplies are not only finite, but diminishing with global warming.

Mining watch Canada call to action

PEJ News - Joss Joseph Mageau - All parties interested in Canadian corporate practices and ethics should check out today's Corp Watch website and the Mining Watch Canada website. The shoddy performances logged by our mining companies are prompting activists to call for a code of ethics in order to force our "goodwill" ambassadors to do our nation a service. More of course can be found on the forementioned websites. As my journeys south are on the cusp of restarting i will be keeping Victoria posted on the happenings in Central America, especificamente residentes, Nicaragua.

Kyoto Second Reading Beats Tories: CBC Buries Head in Tar Sands

PEJ News - C. L. Cook (with no story from the CBC) - Not being a professional journalist or editor myself, and certainly not pulling down the near billion dollars per Canadians shell out for the CBC, far be it from me to question its news sense. But, maybe you, gentle reader can judge the newsworthiness of Canada's Tory minority government, currently plotting to put an end to the British parliamentary practice of votes of non-confidence that can bring down governments too arrogant to accede to the wishes of the populace they ostensibly sit in the House to promote, being embarrassed by the passing of second reading of Canada's ratification of the Kyoto Accords, something Mr. Harper and his red, white, and blue acolytes are foresworn to crash.
