Provinces are leading the way in the fight against climate change according to a report released today by the David Suzuki Foundation. This is in direct contrast to claims made by federal Environment Minister Peter Kent in his report on Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions for 2010.

In the absence of effective policies from Canada’s federal government to tackle global warming, many provinces have stepped up to implement their own plans and policies. This report documents the shift, assessing each province’s climate change plans and programs and comparing the relative merits of each. It updates the status of each province’s efforts, and provides analysis for moving forward.
