Meanwhile, in the wild western region

Earlier this year, the provincial government announced it had "joined with five western U.S. states to partner in the new Western Regional Climate Action Initiative." That initiative will, among other things, "develop a market-based, multi-sector mechanism" to reduce greenhouse gas emissions - a mechanism which is expected to have a significant impact on British Columbia's economy. So how is that development proceeding? Well, last Friday, Public Eye has learned representatives from jurisdictions participating in the initiative - including new members Manitoba and Utah - met in Portland to continue discussing their shared environmental agenda.
