Reduce Auto Emissions Petition

Bow Valley Clean Air Society

Since we can’t eliminate the use of cars all together, help us ensure that Canada’s outdated vehicle emissions standards are drastically improved. By adopting standards equivalent to California’s Clean Cars law, we would reduce carbon emissions from cars by 30 per cent by 2016, using only existing and available technology. Please sign this petition, which asks the Alberta Government to adopt the California standards for vehicle emissions. Read more about Reduce Auto Emissions Petition
