Ottawa stops funding One Tonne Challenge

Martin Mittelstaedt reports for the Globe and Mail that Ottawa has stopped funding the One Tonne Challenge:

The new Conservative government in Ottawa has abruptly stopped funding groups across the country that have been promoting the One Tonne Challenge, the quirky program to persuade Canadians to do their bit to help the environment by cutting their greenhouse gas emissions.

Reportedly, the Conservatives have proposed a new program known as POETWIMP (Piss On Everything; The World Is My Pooper).

Tip of the hat to Treehugger.
