Canadians leave heavy ecological footprint: WWF

A new report by conservationists says Canadians rank fourth in the world in their consumption of the Earth’s resources.

The World Wide Fund for Nature report on the state of the natural world measures the environmental impact or “ecological footprint” left by 150 countries.
The footprint of a country includes all the crop land, grazing land, forest and fishing grounds needed to produce the food, fibre and timber it consumes, to absorb the wastes in generating the energy it uses, and to provide space for its infrastructure.
