Cities taking strides toward greenhouse-gas emission reduction

Guelph, Ont., has a Community Energy Initiative that aims to reduce energy use and cut greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of urban planning, use of technology, regulations, and public awareness, and Vancouver is seen as being 'on the right path' with its 'Greenest Cities' plan.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau brings down the budget on Tuesday. Municipalities are hoping the federal government’s enthusiasm about the Paris Agreement on climate change and lowering greenhouse gas emissions could mean it pours infrastructure money into cities, most notably for transit projects.
