The current Canadian government is most worried about tar sands exploitation and the revenue from that. It's a little less concerned with all this GW hullabaloo and worries over disappearing island nations that nobody in Toronto has ever seen. This Canadian reporter looks at how his country's fared in Copenhagen so far. TWO FOSSIL AWARDS!

Yet today, of all the times, the Canadian postal service announced it is upping its effort to cut carbon emissions from its huge vehicle fleet. Having reduced its emission by 14% since 1990, Canada Post is going for another 20% in the next eleven years. Maybe they woory that trucks will simply disappear beneath the melting formerly-permafrost.
