Reducing emissions in Quebec

Jean Charest has announced our goal of cutting emissions by 20% from 1990 levels by 2020. This is a good move on behalf of the Quebec government. We are the only province which has a good plan for the environment. It's not perfect, but it's better than Alberta. It's also better than Harper's plan. His plan is 20% lower than 2006 emissions by 2020. I hope that we will achieve Quebec's goal. I can't see any way though, of us completing Harper's goal at this rate.
"We believe it is very important for us to lead on this issue because Quebec will live with the consequences of climate change more rapidly and more drastically than other jurisdictions because we are a northern province," Charest said. "Our children and grandchildren expect us to make the right decisions."

  1. Making empty promises are easy. How does Charest propose to reduce GHG and who is going to pay for this?
