OTTAWA — Environmental regulations for Canada’s oil-and-gas sector are in their final stages, the environment minister said Tuesday.
The regulations would seek to curb the sector’s greenhouse-gas emissions to help Canada meet a 2020 target for a 17 per cent cut in overall emissions from 2005 levels.
Rules are already in place for the transportation and coal-fired electricity industries, but estimates suggest they get Canada only halfway to that goal.
