June 3, 2014, Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Ambassador to
Canada is urging this country to follow the lead of its southern neighbour in
the wake of a new plan to cut emissions from coal plants by 30 per cent by
2030.

 

According to a report from The Globe and Mail, Ambassador
Bruce Heyman called on Canada to join the U.S. in an effort to combat climate
change. That includes seeing the Canadian government address its fastest
growing source of emissions, oil production.

 

In the past, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has followed the
lead of the U.S. when it comes to policy of climate change and greenhouse gas
emissions. But the new proposal from the U.S. calls for an emissions cut that
is nearly equivalent to the emissions to Canada’s annual output.

 

At this point, Prime Minister Harper has not made it clear
if he intends to implement a similar plan for Canada.
