The Environment is Central to Our Economic Future
In the October edition of the Canadian Geographic www.candiangeogaphic.ca on page 28 ,the Discovery section, there is an article about the town of Salluit in northern Quebec. The town has had to move 20 homes, the floor of the fire station has collapsed and the 2 year old road to the airport is twisted with dips all as a result of the thawing permafrost.
As a Canadian this is an economic cost to me. The only really viable plan is that put forth by the Liberal part to start to arrest the dramatic changes taking place.
