Hyer hoping to have his bill revived

A recent report on the cost of inaction on climate change is giving Thunder Bay MP Bruce Hyer hope for a revival of his Climate Change bill.  Hyer says his bill which was scrapped by the Conservative dominated Senate has to be accepted following the release of the Nation Round Table on Economy and Environment report which predicted inaction could cost 5 billion dollars a year by 2020 and up to 43 billion a year by 2050.  Hyer says his bill will be reintroduced by NDP MP Megan Leslie.
