Here’s what been making headlines across the country this week:
In Ontario, the provincial government pushes forward with a “cap-and-trade” plan to reduce carbon emissions. The Catholic Register’s Michael Swan looks at how the plan stacks up in light of Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si.”
In Edmonton, The Western Catholic Reporter’s Ramon Gonzalez looks at how local groups in that archdiocese have responded to the pope’s ecology encyclical.
A slightly different angle on the pope’s call to rethink our consumerist way of life, the B.C. Catholic’s tech writer examines the alternatives to helping mega-telecommunications companies get through cable tv fees.
