The article presents information about the Kyoto Protocol Implementation Act in Canada. The purpose of this Act is to ensure that the country takes effective action to meet its obligations under the Kyoto Protocol. It also helps the government address the problem of global climate change. This Kyoto Protocol Act provides two ways for countries to meet their emissions targets, either by reducing its own emissions or paying other country to do the reductions.
