Copenhagen: Canadians Ashamed

A poll has discovered that roughly 75% of Canadians are ashamed of Canada's status of pact-blockers. Canada has been known since Stephen Harper came to power, as a US style environmental treaty destroyer. This is to be ashamed. While Germany cut down on emissions, Canada passed laws that supposedly cut down on emissions. We don't have any good goals. Our goal is to cut emissions 20% below 2006 levels by 2020. Though, at this rate, it looks like we might not even make that objective. Even in Alberta, 65% of people are ashamed that we aren't showing leadership on this issue.
Even in Alberta, 65 per cent of respondents agreed with a statement that “it's embarrassing that we are not doing more to curb emissions.” Support for the view favouring more action was highest in Quebec, at 86 per cent.
