Ambrose Makes You Proud to be Canadian – Not!

on

enviro cab min AmbroseCanadian Environment Minister Rona Ambrose seems to be revelling in her role as the energy industry’s inside man in the campaign to destroy the Kyoto accord on climate change.
Critics are condemning Ambrose’s most recent stealth attack: she blew off a Kyoto protocol ministers meeting last week – attending by phone regardless that she is the chair – and she announced that Canada had also neglected to meet deadlines to submit new proposals for the next international agreement that would start at the end of the Kyoto agreement in 2012.
It is bad enough that Canada is following the U.S. and Australia in denying climate change and failing to meet out international commitments. It is a greater offence yet that Ambrose, by accepting a chair that she clearly has no intention of filling, is sabatoging the efforts of others in the world.
Shame.
