Climate progress

It has been many years since I’ve had a moment of true pride in my government but yesterday I had such a moment.  The Climate Change Accountability Act, which passed through the House yesterday, is not as ambitious as legislation the Green Party would have proposed, and it is silent on the methods it would use to achieve the targets it sets.  Still, it is a solid step forward in the climate battle.  More importantly, it required the cooperation of the Bloc, the Liberals and the NDP to get it passed.  It was very welcome to see three parties put aside their differences for a moment and work together for an important piece of policy.

Last night, I sent letters of congratulations and thanks to Jack Layton and to Michael Ignatieff for this small first step in the climate battle.
