GREEN WAVE

Another "great green wave" is swelling in Canada and is expected to hit
fully within four years, according to a leading pollster. Doug Miller of
Environics says most Canadians (73 per cent) would sacrifice economic
growth for the environment today, anticipating greater future economic
damage from emissions. Other findings:

* 45 per cent say driving a car is the most environmentally damaging
thing they do. "We're calling the automobile the next blue box," Miller
says.

* People are upset about high priced "green" products with dubious
benefits.
