Three years ago For Our Grandchildren (4RG) submitted a petition requesting the Federal Government to cooperate with the Provinces to develop a national policy on Renewable Energy by 2014.
In January 2012 we received a response from the Honourable Joe Oliver. He said nothing whatsoever about a national policy on Renewable Energy by 2014 or any other year! See our blog “Federal Government short-changes Renewable Energy”.
At the 2007 a meeting of the Council of the Federation, the Provincial Premiers explored the prospects for a national policy. They did not anticipate the indifference of the Federal Government, which was too busy selling the tar sands internationally to be concerned about renewables.
