OTTAWA, April 13 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable John Baird, Minister of
the Environment, today apologized to Ecotrust Canada for any inconvenience
that may have ensued since the launch of the $1.5 billion Canada ecoTrust for
Clean Air and Climate Change.
After we launched the initiative, it came to our attention that this
non-profit organization was already using the name "EcoTrust Canada". To avoid
any possibility of confusion, we have agreed to stop using this name.
The Government of Canada is pleased that an amicable solution could be
found between the two parties.
