Oh Canada Our neighbors to the north may soon have a national biofuels standard. The two leading politicial parties in Canada are both promising to require that renewable fuels, such as ethanol and biodiesel, make up 5 percent gasoline and diesel fuel by the year 2010. According to a Reuters Canada report, three of the 10 provinces — Ontario, Saskatchewan and Manitoba — already require some renewable fuels but there is not a national standard. The two major party candidates are Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin and Conservative leader Stephen Harper and the election is just over a month away, January 23.
