"'A Beautiful Day' for Environmentalists"

"Organic champagne anyone? Environmental activists were celebrating Thursday as Quebec's new government gave an unambiguous thumbs-down to the shale gas industry in the morning and confirmed its intention to quickly shut down the Gentilly-2 nuclear plant in the afternoon."

"Add to this recent assurances by the new government that asbestos mining will soon be prohibited in the province, and that three former environmental activists have been named to the cabinet, and it's no surprise that some ecologically minded Quebecers are figuratively, if not literally, popping corks."
