The Environment is Central to Our Economic Future

In last nights debate Mr Harper stated his Governments intensity emission control plan would work and all other plans would be bad for the economy. We know that the climate change currently taking place is creating an economic cost to us now.

In the October edition of the Canadian Geographic 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.
