Environment

One of the big issues for me in these elections is the environment. We are already paying a heavy price for our mismanagement of this issue, both individually and collectively, and the tendency is to get worse.

NDP

Liberal Party

Green

The Conservatives don’t seem to have an actual plan. Let me know if you know otherwise.

I’m a bit disappointed at the NDP plan, which I find vague and less concrete. I like the Liberal plan the best but would like to see it accompanied by massive investment in new alternative energies. And if you find the whole carbon tax hard to understand, here’s David Suzuki’s explanation.

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.
