In 1993, the Liberals committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions 20% from 1990 levels by 2005. Instead, emissions are up by 24%. The NDP's Clean Air Act will undo the damage caused by Liberal neglect and set a firm target - by 2020, Canada's greenhouse gas emissions will be 25% below what they were in 1990.In other words, because of the liberals environmental mismanagement we couldn't meet our targets. There was nothing wrong with the targets. Now we need another 15 to accomplish that we thought we'd accomplish by 2010. It's a pipe dream.
