Searching for the Good Life in a Carbon Neutral BC


The
Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives BC Office released a discussion paper
on Feb. 7 entitled Searching for the Good Life in a Carbon
Neutral BC: Meeting BC’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets with Fairness and
Equity
. This highly readable paper looks at BC’s climate change plan
through a social justice lens to determine possible policy instruments the
government might employ to ensure that climate change policies do not
exacerbate social inequalities. Local government officials may be particularly
interested in the section entitled Sustainable Communities and BC’s Quality of
Life.
