If Canada wants to improve its influence abroad, Johnson said, it will have to "show a real willingness to move ahead on a variety of actions [relating to climate change] without dithering and waiting for the U.S."Great. That's exactly what we should do. We should adopt real targets and not just be the copycat on America's policies. If the US isn't going to move ahead fast enough, that doesn't mean we should wait. Instead, we should be better than they are. Failure on the environment will ultimately ruin us.
Fun fact: according to the poll, more Filipinos think that Canada is a good influence than Canadians.
