Tories Green Petro Plan

So where does the Harper Government launch its secret meetings on its Green Plan? In Alberta. And who do they invite? Big Oil and Big Business.

Tories' proposed environmental plan to include strong links to US
The Harper government is developing a major environmental plan that would involve stronger co-ordination with the United States on key aspects of air pollution and climate change policy, CanWest News Service has learned.

In a meeting with Alberta industry representatives last week, senior government officials delivered this message during an eight-slide presentation outlining the highlights of a comprehensive green plan expected to be announced next month. The officials from the office of Environment Minister Rona Ambrose and her department also discussed changes to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act to allow federal ministers to transfer powers to the provinces to enforce regulations.

''They clearly indicated this was something they were doing work on,'' said Pierre Alvarez, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, who attended the meeting. ''It's something that we have been asking for at both the federal and provincial level for years now.''
