Research published this morning by Environmental Defence Canada concludes that adoption of the powerful Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers lobby group's election wish list would increase Canadian greenhouse gas emissions by 116 million tonnes of CO2 by 2030.

"In that scenario, Canada's oil and gas sector would be emitting 311 million tonnes, making emissions from that one industry representing one-fourteenth of the Canadian economy greater than the emissions of 170 countries in the world," the report stated.

This goes to the respected Toronto-based environmental group's assertion well-funded fossil fuel industry lobbying is the single biggest barrier to effective climate action being taken by Canada.
