Well at least they didn’t pledge to double emissions by 2050

And with this simple 72 word statement:

All the G8 leaders got what they came for.
  • The five European countries get to go home and claim that the G8 committed to cut emissions in half by 2050.
  • The Prime Minister of Japan got to stipulate that his industries would not have the same targets as other countries industries.
  • The US got to say that they are not locked in if China and India don't participate and that the target is a really worldwide goal, not necessarily for them.
  • And Canada got a "Yo Harper, good job. heh, heh and hey where's the Bear Man, I want him to pull my finger again,"

That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

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 …
