Canadian cities woefully unprepared for effects of climate change:
A study suggests most Canadian cities have yet to assess the threat
posed by climate change despite being the most exposed to any weather
disasters it could cause.
A survey of 63 municipalities of all sizes from coast to coast found
major gaps in how most are preparing for coming conditions and in how
they are reducing their contribution to the problem.
"Cities are the most vulnerable government to climate change in Canada
but have the least resources in order to manage the problem, so it's
imperative that they have some strategy or plan," said Jason
Thistlethwaite, a University of Waterloo professor and co-author of
the paper published in the journal Climatic Change.
