Canada is Back??? Climate Change Wishing and Climate Change Acting

Well, from climate change-denying to "sunny" statements about the inseparability of economic and environmental well-being is progress of a kind. But a detached observer might wonder about the practical difference between climate deniers and wishful thinkers. With an economy, like Canada's, that is largely built on fossil fuel extraction the leap to carbon neutrality will not be pain-free or quick. Better to face up.

To buoy up any flagging spirits it's important to recognize important measures where they do exist.
A recent article from For A Better World magazine
called "Sustainable Public Procurement: An Understated and Effective Way to Grow Fair Trade" identifies several Canadian public institutions committed to sourcing fair trade supplies. Read it and encourage similar action in your region. We all have  a role to play in creating a fairer economy, individuals, organizations and industry. To find the TorontotheBetter enterprise where you can get your own free copy of the magazine/article mentioned above email postmaster@TorontotheBetter.net with Procurement in the subject line.
