If you want to know what a lying dirtbag looks like, take a gander at the mug of Stephen Harper or John Baird.
The lie is that they're just waiting for American action to curb carbon emissions so Canada can do the same. They're not and they won't.
In January new rules come into effect south of the border to curb GHG emissions of big polluters. The Harper government has decided Canada needs something much better than that, something far more comprehensive than a dumb American policy that, if applied in Canada, would directly target the Athabasca Tar Sands.
So just go home and sit and wait for "something much better" or, better yet, just forget about it entirely. Lying bastards.
