New Brunswick gets a B on climate change report card

An environmental watchdog has given New Brunswick an improved grade on its efforts to combat climate change.

The province scored a B in a report card issued Wednesday by the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, an improvement over last year's C-minus rating.

"It brought in a pretty good climate action plan, the first real one we've had that set reasonable targets for cutting the pollution that causes global warming," said David Coon, policy director for the council. (CBC)
