A Federal Sustainable Development Strategy for Canada

Have just scrolled through the consultation document.   And the first thing that struck me is that this is consultation document for an environmental sustainability strategy - not a sustainable development strategy for Canada.   The difference?  In my view and environmental sustainability strategy is that - with a focus on the environment.   A sustainable development strategy, however, attempts to integrate economic, environmental and social issues.   We need policies that will consider environmental, social and economic consequences together - rather than in isolation.
