New climate change targets don't address oilsands

Canada announced new greenhouse gas reduction targets on Friday, pledging to cut emissions by 30 per cent over the next 15 years, but the plan says nothing about reining in the pollution from Alberta's oilsands.

"What we have put forward today is a serious target," said federal Environment.

Minister Leona Aglukkaq."We will still require work to get reducing our targets and we're determined to do that."
