Carbon Trust Fund could fund more projects

Reader questions validity of greenhouse gas emission reduction strategy

Re: Greenhouse gas leaks from Trust, (B.C. Views, April 5)

I think there is a simple and obvious solution to the problems with the Pacific Carbon Trust Fund.

Just change its name to the Pacific Enviro Slush Fund and pump a lot more money into it, so many more grants can be made available for important enviro-friendly projects.

For example, I am working on a detailed plan to protect all of the kermode bears in the Greater Victoria area.

In exchange for a government grant of just $1 million, I can absolutely guarantee that the number of kermode bears in this area will never drop below the current level.
