Leadership in this context requires matching the targets of the most
progressive provincial governments in Canada and negotiating in a
cooperative manner with other nations."
“The House [of Commons] has expressed its will in the Bloc Québécois motion
passed this week [November 25th]. The Prime Minister [now attending the
Copenhagen Conference] should represent all Canadians and put forward the
view of the majority of Canadians and the majority of Parliamentarians --
not just that of his minority government,”

government is forced to become a climate leader, not remain an international
embarrassment. Please write a letter containing your concerns and bring it
