A remarkable shift in global climate change politics and policy has occurred in Canada over the past two years. When the David Suzuki Foundation first assessed provincial and territorial action on global warming in October 2005, the resultswere not uplifting. Only a smattering of policies in a few provinces addressed the issue. Most provinces and territories did not have an active climate change plan. Some good policies had been proposed, and even implemented, but none were found in all provinces and no individual province had shown much leadership.
