Bloomberg News - Canada Reduced Taxes on Investment to 11th Highest, C.D.

CBC News - Quebec plans ban on phosphates in detergents (25 September 2007) Quebec's government will introduce a regulation this fall to prohibit phosphates in dish soap and other detergents. Environment Minister Line Beauchamp announced the plan at a Tuesday forum on the blue-green algae infesting a number of Quebec lakes. Beauchamp said she's lobbying the federal government to modify its rules on phosphates, which she argues would have a greater impact. But until that happens, Quebec will bring in stricter rules, following the lead of Manitoba, which banned dishwater phosphates in June, the minister said. Quebec will also pledge an additional C$90 million in funding over 10 years to help farmers adopt practices that are less polluting.
From a Montreal Gazette report on this: Environmentalists argue that phosphates in dishwashing detergents are one of the sources for blue-green algae growth. Liquid fertilizer from agricultural lands has also been linked to the algae's overgrowth. In addition, two million trees will be planted over the next two years along lake and river banks to stop erosion caused by deforestation, another culprit. 'We're going to regulate to eliminate phosphates,' Premier Jean Charest told a news conference.
CBC News - University of Prince Edward Island aims to be carbon neutral (25 September 2007) The University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) has set up a new program to give students, faculty, and staff a chance to offset the greenhouse gas emissions they create getting to and from school. The university's sustainability office will calculate the level of emissions people create, and recommend a donation to offset those emissions. The dollar amounts are expected to be reasonable. Any donations will go to the Macphail Woods Ecological Forestry Project. UPEI's long-term goal is to create a carbon-neutral campus. In addition to the offset program, it has started maintaining its own fleet of bicycles for student use.
The Victoria Times Colonist - Harbour Air buying credits to go carbon neutral (26 September 2007) Harbour Air Ltd in British Columbia has charted a historical course with plans to become the first airline in North America—and only the second worldwide—to be completely carbon neutral by the end of the year. It will include everything about the operation, from fuel to electricity use at various terminals. The Richmond-based seaplane operator announced it will purchase carbon offsets from a Vancouver non-profit society which will re-invest the money into green energy projects within Harbour Air's operating area. Harbour Air currently operates 32 aircraft and is considered the largest seaplane fleet in the world. The company employs more than 300 people in operations up and down the B.C. coast. Harbour Air says it will be the first air carrier of any type on the continent to go completely carbon neutral in all operations and the only seaplane fleet in the world to do so.
