Quebec's New Fuel Efficiency Standard To Take Effect January 14
MONTREAL -- Environmental and consumer groups are welcoming the news that Quebec’s new fuel efficiency standards officially take effect in mid-January, meaning automakers will face stiff fines if they sell too many gas-guzzling vehicles in the province.
Quebec is the first Canadian province to adopt strict fuel efficiency rules for cars sold or leased there, following the lead of California and 15 other United States jurisdictions in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“We hope other Canadian provinces and the federal government will follow our footsteps,” Quebec Environment Minister Line Beauchamp said Tuesday.
