Harper Govt. Suddenly Decides To Resuscitate Liberal Environment Programs
he political ground is shifting -- and looking greener -- as the Conservatives digest the implications of Stephane Dion's Liberal leadership victory. There's word of major environmental initiatives in the new year, and rumours that Environment Minister Rona Ambrose is set to be shuffled into another portfolio.

The government is expected to announce in the new year it will revive in some form several Liberal programs it cancelled: EnerGuide, the Wind Power Production Incentive and the Renewable Power Production Incentive.

The rumours that Ambrose will be replaced are pervasive, although many environmentalists say she should not be blamed for contradictory policies dictated by the prime minister's office. Among those mentioned as possible replacements are Health Minister Tony Clement, who briefly served as Ontario environment minister, and Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon.

Shuffling Ambrose could make it easier for the government to engineer a major change of direction -- even, some suggest, to accept the emissions-cutting targets of the Kyoto Protocol.

1. A good way to approach this might be
to create a post or two which is a summary of topical environmental issues, instead of dominating Latest with 11 of the last 20 posts. On a board with 80,000 members, someone else might want to get a word in. :eyes:
