Canada: Criminal NegliGENTS are us.

Canada’s ongoing campaign to undermine international climate change negotiations seems to be right on track. In its most recent success, the country was able to drive the accumulated representatives of most of the developing world out of the room in Bangkok, so offensive is the Canadian negotiating position.

As CTV reports here, Canada is bent on ripping up the Kyoto Protocol, perhaps incorporating elements of the beleaguered agreement into some watered down planet-wasting alternative that will allow Canada to continue to commit itself to a dying (and deadly) resource.

Canadian Environment Minister Jim Prentice makes periodic noises to suggest that he knows what climate change is and that he has some flickering conscience. Then he leads the international assault on the single agreement that has some hope of counteracting the threat. It’s time that Canadian travellers started buying U.S. flags to sew on their backpacks. It’s too embarrassing to be recognized outside the country as Canadian.
