Liberal plan fails to meet Kyoto targets

Ontarians will only meet 1990 levels of CO2 by 2014, according to the McGuinty government. Meanwhile they are throwing $600 million at developing green cars. Maybe Ontario would have reached 1990 levels sooner if the Liberals hadn't previously thrown $500m at cars that were distinctly less green.

The fact that Buzz Hargrove likes this plan probably means this is a handout for Detroit's plants to go green rather than a further assistance to companies like Toyota and Honda who have done the heavy lifting to go for even more efficient cars, but they are more averse to unions like Buzz's.
