ABSTRACT
Canada has been both a visible and vocal proponent of the Kyoto Protocol; however, the reality is that Canada's record on reducing greenhouse gas emissions thus far has been both dismal and disappointing. With the recent dismantling of Canada's climate change programs, it appears that Canada has moved backwards. Despite feeling failed by the government, Canadian youth are refusing to take a backseat by taking it upon themselves to tackle this urgent problem armed with ingenuity, creativity and determination.
