Kevin Grandia: Will Harper Embarrass Canada at Doha?
when it comes to gas guzzling and shopping extravaganzas, we are just as bad as our friends down South.

We might be only about 10 per cent the population of the United States, but per capita (as in each one of us) we leave a carbon footprint roughly the same size.

We are even worse than America when it comes to how we are seen at international climate negotiations.
Politically speaking, Harper has never seen a reason to be strong on climate change policy. A year after completely embarrassing Canada at the Copenhagen climate summit, Harper went on to win a majority of the seats in the Canadian Parliament.  [Isn't that a mandate for Canada to continue to refuse to cooperate with UN climate swindlers?]
