OTTAWA – Today [May 5, 2010], the New Democrat Climate Change Accountability Act (Bill
C-311) passed its final vote in the House of Commons by a vote of 149
to 136.

“It is a great day for Canada as we finally have a blueprint for
greening our future,” said New Democrat Leader Jack Layton. “We would
not be here without the thousands of Canadians who called and wrote to
their Members of Parliament, pushing them to finally adopt meaningful
climate-change legislation.”

“It’s been a lot of work with a lot of ups and downs,” said Bruce Hyer
(Thunder Bay–Superior North), who introduced the bill in the House. “But
finally Canada will be on its way to having clear regulations and
frameworks for fighting climate change. We can at least hold our heads
up high in the international community.”
