There is good news to report on Canada’s progress in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
When Environment Canada releases an update next month, the report is expected to show that Canada is almost half way toward meeting its 2020 goal.
That’s a big jump from the 25 per cent announced a year ago.
Canadian Press sources say the surge is a result of provincial measures, more efficient technology and a recent international agreement that credits Canada for its large forests.
The Federal government has pledged that by 2020, Canada will have cut its emissions to just over 600 megatonnes, or 17 per cent below 2005 levels.
