Grade 9 Canada

The government in Canada might be hesitant or unwilling to take a firm stance on environmental issues and require consumers and industry to adopt environmentally friendly production methods, business practices and consumption because:
  1. as a market economy, the Canadian government has no authority to intervene in the economy.
  2. the big environmental issues facing the global society are a result of activities in other countries, so making Canada 'greener' really isn't going to solve the environmental issues facing the planet.
  3. Canada operates as a mixed economy and values individualism and does not want the government intervening in the economy or making decision affecting the well-being of individuals.
  4. changing production or consumption practices impacts the economy, which affects both the government tax base and consumer quality of life.
