Michael Ignatieff had the following to say about Stephen Harper in a speech to students at Laval University on the topic of climate change,
“Stephen Harper doesn’t understand the environment, either. He’s turned Canada into a veritable saboteur of international climate change negotiations.” — Michael Ignatieff
The “Fossil of the Day” award, sponsored by AVAAZ.org, is an award that “is given to countries that block progress at the United Nations Climate Change Negotations.”
While Michael Ignatieff is tut-tutting about Stephen Harper’s realistic targets of 20% reduction of GHGs by 2020, under (forgive the cliche) thirteen years of Liberal rule, how did Canada do on the GHG file? According to the Fossil of the Day, Canada “won” 89 awards, beating out the Saudis with 88.
FLASHBACK: How does the media cover Canada’s environmental record (Conservative vs. Liberal)?
UPDATE: Michael Ignatieff agrees!
