Looking for green in federal budget
Environmental and policy groups are calling on the government to commit to funding green technologies in the 2010 budget to create new jobs and promote clean energy.
The Liberal Party wants the government to present a climate change plan, allocating money to green technology and clean energy.
Both the Liberals and Bloc Québécois proposed tax incentives for companies in emerging sectors, including alternative energy projects and electric cars.
The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives has called for a plan to create green jobs, with an investment of $5 billion over three years “to green our economy.”
