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

20 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 470 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
Pluralism by design : environmental policy and the American regulatory state by George Hoberg( Book )

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

11 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and held by 232 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 11 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
