Bill C-484 Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions Regulations

Elizabeth May moved for leave to introduce Bill C-484, An Act Respecting the Amendment of the Reduction of Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Coal-fired Generation of Electricity Regulations.


She said: Mr. Speaker, I have the honour of rising today to introduce this private member’s bill to reduce greenhouse gases. It has been clearly established that emissions from coal-fired power plants are one of the most dangerous sources of greenhouse gases for the planet.

My private member’s bill would work to improve and strengthen the weak regulations that have been put forward to deal with greenhouse gas emissions from coal-fired power plants.
