Publication - Oct. 29, 2009 - By Matthew Bramley

Full text of the presentation by Matthew Bramley to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development, October 29, 2009 concerning Bill C-311, the federal Climate Change Accountability Act.

"Bill C-311 makes no pretension to be a comprehensive plan to cut emissions. Instead, it would set a level of ambition for emission reductions, and enforce accountability mechanisms to increase the likelihood that the government of the day would fulfil its responsibility to develop and implement a plan to achieve those reductions."
