Peter Kent’s brave stand

by

John Baird said the Liberal cap-and-trade plan was “unCanadian” and Stephen Harper said the NDP cap-and-trade plan would “wreak enormous havoc on the Canadian economy,” but Environment Minister Peter Kent apparently thinks cap-and-trade could still be pursued at some point.

“There’s no expectation of cap-and-trade continentally in the near or medium future and we don’t believe that it would be wise to go with a shallow market in a closely integrated continental economy,” Kent said. “It can always be something to consider in the future.”
