Description:

The paper discusses how the reaction on the part of industrial polluters to the federal government's latest policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions was that it is burdensome but less demanding than Kyoto. The paper relates that rather than strict caps on greenhouse gas emissions, the policy is directed at intensity-based cuts. The paper asserts that as Ontario policy demonstrates, federal policy on emission reduction is misguided, without focus, and will further entrench Canada at serious competitive disadvantage. The paper further relates that under federal policy, all industries in Canada will be forced to cut their emissions by 18 percent per unit of production over the next three years (CBC News 1). The paper explains that this policy means that the auto industry is confronted with fuel efficiency standards by 2011 and therefore must design new models to accommodate the policy.
