    Travels to England showed me how far ahead they are, for such a small country. These two countries put the U.S. to shame.

    In the past, England polluted their oceans and waterways and Canada overfished their seas to the point of almost no return for some species. It’s great to see the two countries are leading in something that’s good for themselves and the world.

    Canada has been involved in reducing our carbon footprint for a long time. I remember reading about the initial conversations between us and the Brits a while back. They seemed to have taken things a lot more seriously since then.

    There is a long standing bond between the U.K. and Canada, so I’m not surprised at this at all. The ‘green’ message in Canada has been at the forefront for years. We are just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up (as always).
