"Harper on wrong side of climate change debate: poll
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, at the United Nations Monday for a climate change summit, is running with the "wrong crowd" of international allies on the issue,"
The survey of 1,000 Canadians by the firm Harris/Decima, commissioned by an environmental group, indicated that six in 10 respondents (61 per cent) want Canada aligned with European countries that favour strict Kyoto-like emissions targets.
Only one-quarter agreed with the notion that Canada "should be siding with countries like the U.S. and Australia who want non-Kyoto targets."
"Canadians want our prime minister to quit running with the wrong crowd when it comes to international efforts to combat climate change," said John Bennett, executive-director of ClimateforChange.ca, in a news release.
So many speeches, so many mistruths, so many exaggerations, so many photo-ops, so little progress.
