Tory budget ignores climate change

Well, no big surprise really - the Tory budget cuts the Kyoto programs and replaces them with a small tax credit to transit users, and promises of funding for a 'made in Canada' solution.

As Dale Marshall of the David Suzuki Foundation said:

“Ninety per cent of Canadians have said global warming is a serious problem and they want the government to take action,” said Mr. Marshall. “By gutting the climate plan and abandoning the Kyoto Protocol, Prime Minister Harper is effectively thumbing his nose at their concerns.”
