B.C. the continent's greenest spot - Campbell's Throne Speech
Kudos to Gordon Campbell who "even upstaged California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger" as reported in the Globe. "By 2020, the provincial government plans to reduce B.C.'s greenhouse-gas emissions by at least 33 per cent below current levels..". LFP also credits Campbell for preempting any possible greener platform or indeed criticism from the BC NDP or even the BC Green party. P.S. Between the Feds and BC home owner green renovation incentives on the horizon we should all hold off on any more home improvements until they are announced, "Existing homes and buildings will be offered incentives to retrofit them, while a new B.C. Green Building Code will be developed."! Meanwhile Schwarzenegger plans to visit B.C. this spring & endorses the BC green plan.
