Harper to G8: It's not fair because China and India don't have to. Isn't that right George.

In a repeat of his European tour, Harper is planning to go to the G8 meetings to give excuses why he is not implementing our current Kyoto targets and to place roadblocks in the negotiation of future emission targets, which he agreed to negotiate last December at Bali.

Meanwhile Bush, ignoring the fact that the US is the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world (China became no. 1 this year) will oppose any new agreement that does not contain targets for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world.

Fortunately for Americans, their embarrassment will finally come to an end this year, as this is the last G8 meeting for Bush. 

Unfortunately for Canadians our embarrassment could remain in office for another one.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
