Parkdale-High Park All-Candidates Debate on the Environment: Recap and Reflection

On Wednesday, October 2nd, almost 400 members of our community gathered at Humbercrest United Church for the Parkdale-High Park All-Candidates Debate on the Environment. As the pews filled, people nudged closer together, pulled chairs from other rooms, and leaned against columns. Yellow “100 Debates” pins flickered against the black shirts of volunteers from Green 13, Green Parkdale-Roncesvalles, and Safe Rail Communities as they hurried about, directing attendees in and encouraging them to submit questions for the debate.

Dark Day for Canada

On December 12, 2011, Minister of the Environment Peter Kent, announced that Canada would withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol on December 15, 2012.

Canada is the only nation that ratified the Kyoto Protocol to abandon its commitment.

Under the Protocol, Canada committed to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions to 6% below our 1990 levels (589 Mt CO2e) by 2012. Thus our target was 554 Mt.

However, according to Environment Canada's 2010 report, our emissions were 692 Mt (25% above our Kyoto target.)
