Friday the 13th seems to be a bad news day for the Tories. Here is another lie they have told. I wonder what Papa Geppetto would say about Pinocchio Harper.
Environmentalists say they have obtained a leaked draft of the federal government's long-promised Clean Air Act, and they're not impressed.
The bill amounts to little more than a set of minor amendments to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA), according to a team of environmental lawyers who studied the draft.
"First they promised a made-in-Canada plan and there is no plan. Then Prime Minister Harper promised a new Clean Air Act. Now we know there isn't one," said Beatrice Olivastri, head of the Friends of the Earth Canada.
"Based on the draft reviewed, this bill is mainly housekeeping and minor adjustments in language. It shuffles air pollution and greenhouse gas provisions to a new section of CEPA."
Olivastri said the bill does not appear to enhance federal regulatory authority to curb greenhouse gases or other pollutants.
