CUPE and Greenpeace Unite to Push Kyoto




Two unlikely allies have come together to lobby the federal government to ratify the Kyoto Accord.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees and Greenpeace Canada issued a joint statement last month saying that the positive economic and ecological consequences of implementing Kyoto's provisions on global warming far outweigh any negative impact.

The move comes on the heels of a joint national campaign for Kyoto by the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers, the largest energy production union in Canada, and the David Suzuki Foundation.
