On August 9, Canadian Environment Minister Peter Kent released a consultation paper detailing proposed regulations focused on limiting GHG emissions in heavy-duty vehicles. Everything from full-size pickup trucks to tractor-trailers, (including freight, delivery, service, cement, garbage, dump trucks, and buses) would be required to reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency under the rule – which is to be available for 60 days of public comment in early 2012. The proposed regulation would promote the roll-out of advanced technology vehicles such as hybrid and electric vehicles as well.
