Listen live to the Cons. filibuster of Bill C377!

If you’re wondering what Bill C377 is, thats the “Climate Change Accountability Act”.  The Cons. have been filibustering this in the Environment Committee because it tacks on hard targets (or what our environmental allies call “science-based targets”) of a reduction of 25% of CO2 emissions by 2020.   I was sent an email today from Ruth Edwards, the Executive Coordinator of Climate Action Network Canada-Réseau action climate Canada, who mentioned there was going to be some local activists there (also mentioned in Kady O’Malley’s blogpiece) to try and put pressure on the Committee (read: the Cons) to finally get back to work on this bill and passing it so it can be sent back to Parliament.

If you wish to listen to the proceedings, and hear what an attempted fillibuster sounds like (and experience what Kady O’Malley has to put up with when she liveblogs these), Ms. Edwards has kindly supplied me with the link where you can listen (it starts at 3 pm Eastern).

UPDATE: Due to the opposition parties being asleep at the switch, the meeting was adjourned and we all get to do this again, according to Kady. I’m sure she’s looking forward to it.
