Risk, science and politics : regulating toxic substances in Canada and the United States by Kathryn Harrison( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Government regulation of toxic substances varies dramatically between the United States and Canada. In Risk, Science, and Politics Kathryn Harrison and George Hoberg analyse these differences and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of two very different regulatory styles." "The Canadian approach is exemplified by closed decision making, case-by-case review that relies heavily on expert judgement, and limited public debate about the scientific basis of regulatory decisions. In contrast, regulatory science in the United States is characterized by publication of lengthy rationales for regulatory decisions, reliance on standardized procedures for risk assessment, and controversy surrounding the interpretation of scientific evidence. Harrison and Hoberg's detailed comparisons will help readers understand the complexities and subtleties involved in regulation of toxic substances."--Jacket
Degrees of freedom : Canada and the United States in a changing world by Keith G Banting( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comparative study of Canadian and American responses to the changing international economy and to changing patterns of social diversity in domestic society, Degrees of Freedom traces the impact of these pressures on the economic and social structure, culture, political institutions, and policy regimes of the two countries." "The book's primary aim is to determine whether Canada and the United States have become more similar as their economies have become more integrated and their societies more diverse. The authors conclude that although powerful economic and social pressures clearly constrain national governments and lead to convergence in some areas, distinctive cultural and political processes preserve room for distinctive national responses to important problems of the late twentieth century."--Jacket
Pluralism by design : environmental policy and the American regulatory state by George Hoberg( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capacity for choice : Canada in a new North America by George Hoberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, this collection of essays - part of the Trends Project of the Government of Canada's Policy Research Initiative - examines North American integration and its potential future impact on Canadian life. It looks at trends in integration, knowledge gaps, and policy implications in economics, culture, and politics." "The contributors argue that the consequences of continental integration have not been as formidable as many people believe - the reality turns out to be enormously complex and ambiguous. While Canada has surrendered some policy instruments in exchange for access to larger markets and the pressures for harmonization have probably increased, it still retains significant room to manoeuvre, even in areas of policy most affected by growing economic integration. Canada has formidable capacities for domestic policy choices in a wide range of sectors, as this volume clearly shows. It is up to Canadians and their elected officials to exercise that freedom, and the essays collected here can guide them in their choices, as they help to forge a new North America."--Jacket

Getting more benefits from BC forest lands : the intensive zoning option by George Hoberg( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A difficulty with the concept of integrated resource management as a basis for current forest management policies in British Columbia is that policies must strike a balance among often competing and sometimes mutually exclusive activities on the same forest land base. This paper is intended to stimulate public discussion on one possible way around this impasse: intensive zoning, a combination of greater differentiation among forest areas, reduced regulatory constraints in intensive timber production zones, and enhanced silviculture. The paper identifies the major issues and obstacles involved, reviewing the relevant literature and posing a series of questions for public consideration. Issues discussed include the possibility of increased yields, the impact of reduced regulation, environmental challenges, and social challenges such as land claims & community stability

In search of sustainability : British Columbia forest policy in the 1990s by Benjamin William Cashore( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In recent years, the forests of British Columbia have become a battleground for sustainable resource development. The conflicts are ever present, usually pitting environmentalists against the forest industry and forestry workers and communities. In an effort to broker peace in the woods, British Columbia's NDP government launched a number of promising new forest policy initiatives in the 1990s. In Search of Sustainability brings together a group of political scientists to examine this extraordinary burst of policy activism. Focusing on how much change has occurred and why, the authors examine seven components of BC forest policy: land use, forest practices, tenure, Aboriginal issues, timber supply, pricing, and jobs. Results of initiatives in these policy areas have been mixed. While environmental values have acquired a more central place in BC forest policy, they have not displaced timber production as the dominant force in policy making. Moreover, the authors conclude that despite the astonishing level of activism, the government's search for sustainability -- whether measured by environmental, social, economic, or political indicators -- has ultimately failed. In Search of Sustainability is a lucid, provocative, and often sobering examination of a crucial period in the forest industry in a province where forestry remains a central plank of the provincial economy and where environmental pressures, both domestic and foreign, continue to escalate. Essential reading for scholars, teachers, and students of forestry and environmental policy, it will also appeal to anyone interested in the future of forestry both in British Columbia and beyond
The export question : under what conditions should British Columbia become a major exporter of electricity? by George Hoberg( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Electricity policy in British Columbia has become extremely controversial in recent years. The provincial government's decision in 2002 to require that all new sources of electricity (other than Site C and upgrades to existing facilities) be acquired from the private sector proved to be a lightning rod for political conflict. That decision provoked a strong backlash by interest groups and members of the public concerned about privatization, environmental impacts, input by affected communities, and fair pricing. In the public debate, the issue of electricity trade has cropped up frequently. The government and private power producers have used the argument that BC Hydro has increasingly had to import power from other jurisdictions to meet provincial demand to bolster the case that more sources of power are required. Critics of the government's energy policy have challenged that argument and claimed that the province continues to be a net exporter of power
