Still neck and neck with Alberta but, and for the second year, Saskatchewan manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory to claim the crown with the highest Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions in the country.  For details on the breakdown of Saskatchewan emissions - try this.

Also shown is 2013 data although there is very little change between the two years. Of note is that Newfoundland and Labrador substantially increased emissions (from 16.3 to 20.1) while both Nova Scotia and New Brunswick achieved substantial reductions (9.3 and 5.3 percent respectively). Canada reduced emissions from 20.8 to 20.6 tonnes or by 1 percent.

Congratulations to Quebec for being the lowest in the country: however and before Québécois andQuébécoise get too carried away with themselves, a comparison with other countries is in order. While the numbers are different between this page and that (different data sources) Canada is nonetheless a clear international GHG laggard.
