Ottawa Drifting Toward Anti-Kyoto Group

It is, woefully, no surprise whatsoever that Canada's Conservative government is considering joining the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate. As the Globe and Mail reported today, anti-Environment Minister Rona Ambrose is cuddling up to the U.S. policy position, saying “I've been looking at the Asia-Pacific Partnership for a number of months now because the key principles around the Asia Pacific Partnership are very much in line with where our government wants to go.”
