It is not a surprise to any Canadian that the US and Canada are inextricably linked in many ways. However, it should come as a shock that we are dependent upon them for our policy regarding climate change. There is no doubt that we emit more green house gases than any other G8 nation. In fact, we produce more green house gas emissions than the bottom half of the world's countires - COMBINED. And we have done nothing about curbing our emissions under the Liberal and ConservatiCanda, USve administrations - to date. But now that the Americans have elected Obama, and he has managed to get the American Clean Energy And Security Act through the House of Representatives, oil companies are worried that Canada will "mirror US Policy." Mirror US policy? We should be creating our own!
