We're Hypocrites or Maybe Just Harpocrites

Stephen Harper said he wanted to elevate Canada's reputation on the global scene. He's failed. He has transformed our reputation by dragging it through the mud. From the Globe & Mail:

Yvo de Boer, head of the United Nations climate-change agency, said Canada seems to be hypocritical in what it demands from other countries.

"I personally find it interesting to hear Canada just a little while ago indicating it would not meet its commitments under the Kyoto protocol and now calling on developing countries to take binding reduction targets," he told a press conference today at the Bali climate-change conference.

Rajendra Pachauri, head of the climate science panel that was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize today, has blasted the Harper government for its climate stance.

"This particular government has been a government of skeptics," said Mr. Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which shared the Nobel Prize with Al Gore.

"They do not want to do anything on climate change," he added in a published interview in New Delhi.

Well when you come to office and you have to deal with the liberal record on the enviroment what do you expect.

You liberal hacks are too funnny. I have never seen such hypocrisy.

It must suck being a partisan hack and trying to spin the liberal parties record on the enviroment.

Nice try, Anon. Canada's not so new government hasn't done one damned thing on the environment, save to drag along Big Oil to hold Baird's hand at Bali. It all comes down to the Tar Sands chump. There's nothing and no one going to get in Harper's way on that one, not even the world we're leaving to future generations of Canadians. You want hypocrisy? You can start at Athabasca.
