Where's Waldo ?

Pablo Rodiguez's Private Member's Bill (C-288) was voted on today. Pablo tabled a bill to make the government respect our previous engagement on Kyoto.

Curiously, the candidate of the environment in the present leadership race, the Hon. Stéphane Dion, was missing. He didn't show up for the vote.

How comitted is Mr. Dion to the environment ? I am sure David Suzuki would have shown up to coerce the Conservative government to respect previous engagements on environment.

Dion worked so hard on COP 11 to make Canada respect Kyoto targets and he drops the ball like that.

No more hypocrisy! Ha ha ha!!
Where was Iggy (human rights "expert") for three weeks during the Israel/Lebanon war?

It's clear that Dion was in the right place at the right time. He is not the champion of the environment that he try to make himself appear.

Otherwise, Canada's pollution under the Chretien-Martin Liberals wouldn't have increased and become worst than the US pollution rates... check out

So in then end, big deal that Kyoto was signed... NOTHING substantial was done by the previous liberals to actually achieve Kyoto goals. Hence, Dion and the previous liberal regime can claim environmental superiorty all the want because the signed Kyoto, but the facts on the ground paint a different story.

There's a word for them... Hypocrites.

Where is Iggy on this? He publicly stated that he did not think the Kyoto targets could be met.
As for Dion, I am pretty sure he still believes in Kyoto.

Ignatieff has come out with the most progressive and bold environmental and sustainable development strategy Canada has seen. It is realistic and implementable.

That he, like Dion, acknowledge our own failings in trying to achieve Kyoto goals to date, does not equate with a rejection of Kyoto.

haha Jeff

In all honesty though, Michael did vote in favor...

and check out his environmental platform, which even the environmentalists hail as bold!

Yeah real bold (sarcasm intended).
I am so impressed with his plans for "clean air, clean water and healthy food" - I mean, Iggy is so different from all the other candidates, who advocate dirty air, dirty water and poisoned food.

It's right up there with his plan for a two-state solution with Israel and Palestine because it's just "really bad" there- I mean, no one's ever thought of that before!

Or his saying that we need to trade with China, while quietly saying that we disagree with their human-rights practices - no one's ever tried that before!

The man's a genius!
