Risk, science, and politics regulating toxic substances in Canada and the United States by Kathryn Harrison ( )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 1,397 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."--BOOK JACKET
Degrees of freedom Canada and the United States in a changing world ( )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 1,230 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
Capacity for choice : Canada in a new North America by George Hoberg ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 337 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."--BOOK JACKET

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 29 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
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 9 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

Capacity for Choice: Canada in a New North America. The Trends Project Series ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Drawing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars, this collection of essays, part of the Trends Project of the Government of Canada, examines North American integration and its potential future impact on Canadian life. Trends in integration, knowledge gaps, and policy implications are analyzed in eight areas: trade, the labour market, the brain drain, macroeconomics, federalism, social welfare, the environment, and culture.The contributors argue the consequences of continental integration have not been as formidable as widely believed. While some policy instruments have been surrendered in exchange for access to larger markets and pressures for harmonization have probably increased, Canada still retains significant room to maneuver, even in areas of policy most affected by growing economic integration. The most severe constraints imposed by globalization may be more in the mind than in a reality that is enormously complex and ambiguous. Canada has formidable capacities for domestic policy choices in a wide range of sectors. It is up to Canadians and their elected officials to chose how to exercise that freedom of choice
