The Green Stimulus Plan- In Canada
"The plan calls for $22.7 billion in federal investments and $18.6 billion in low-interest loans to stimulate the green economy and catalyze provincial action. Dollars would flow to retrofit buildings, ramp up renewable energy, expand public transit and support clean-tech manufacturing.
Environmentalist Tzeporah Berman says Canada risks being left behind by a United States committed to greening its economy under the leadership of new president Barack Obama, to be sworn into office today."
"The list of signatories supporting the Green Economy Action Fund and calling for the government to address global warming and the green stimulus in the upcoming budget include: Canadian Association of 45Plus (CARP), United Steelworkers, the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE), the Pembina Institute, Environmental Defence, ForestEthics and the Forest Products Association of Canada."
