A report by the Pembina Institute, funded by the British High Commission,
"offers evidence that the Harper Government’s “Economic Action Plan” short-changed the environment and missed its primary objective of job creation."
"Not only did the government stimulus money produce too few green jobs, says the report, but it missed the chance to create at least another 150,000 jobs through a wise investment of that money.
"The British High Commission’s funding for the report, Reducing Pollution, Creating Jobs, came as no surprise to anyone who noticed the island nation’s growing alarm over global warming."
The Pembina report contends that, invested wisely, the stimulus spending could have created 238,000 jobs instead of the paltry 84,000 actually achieved.
But don't fret. The stimulus spending was all borrowed money anyway meaning you can pass it along to your kids to repay.
