CAW’s Hargrove says Clean Air Act not enough
Toronto, Ontario – The Clean Air Act introduced on Thursday takes previously negotiated voluntary auto emission targets and proposes them as enforceable limits in five years. But the Clean Air Act is not a comprehensive emissions reduction strategy, says the CAW’s Buzz Hargrove. “It won’t distract Canadians and our union from the government’s refusal to honour Canada’s Kyoto Accord commitments,” he said. “We do not accept that intensity based targets will lead to reduced greenhouse gases and call on the opposition parties to force the government to live up to Canada’s commitment to the Kyoto Accord,” he said.
