No Doubt Aboot It
Canadian Natural Resources Minister Herb Dhaliwal said yesterday that his country would continue to back the Kyoto treaty on climate change. He said the same thing last Thursday. What’s the fuss? Canada has come under increasing pressure from the Bush administration to abandon the treaty. With only the best interests of our northern neighbors in mind, of course, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Paul Cellucci said on Friday that backing Kyoto would be a drain on the Canadian economy. Cellucci added that he couldn’t promise that relations between the two countries wouldn’t sour if Canada ratified Kyoto. Dhaliwal seemed unimpressed.
