The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has just released a report titled "Ecological Footprints of Canadian Municipalities and Regions". It contains data on 20 Canadian municipalities and Regions. It also contains some international comparisons, including the U.S.A. View the report on the FCM website:
