Live Blogging from Copenhagen
Posted on 18. Dec, 2009 by Rosa Kouri in Canada.
While Harper was in Copenhagen tonight, he declined to present Canada’s speech to the plenary (unlike many other world leaders), and sent Environment Minister Jim Prentice in his stead.
There is nothing startling in this speech, and it includes many of the positions already identified in previous positions. It continues the language of synchronising Canada’s efforts with the US, and maintaining a one-track approach (implying a new agreement rather than the Kyoto Protocol). Far as I can tell, there are no concrete tragets identified, no new financing commitments, or reference to emerging science.
You decide what you think!
