British Columbia supports California lawsuit against feds over vehicle emissions

The government of British Columbia filed papers in a US Court of Appeals this week in support of California’s attempts to regulate vehicle emissions.  California was forced to sue the federal government in order to adopt emissions standards that are more stringent than current federal law.  California aims to have a reduction of 30% in vehicle emissions by 2016, however, the Bush administration has refused to grant a waiver.  

The BC government noted that they would like to adopt the same regulations as California, but that they do not have enough of a market share to influence car manufacturer behavior.  California, on the other hand, has more residents than all of Canada, and any regulations adopted there will substantially effect automaker behavior.
