Joint Statement on Climate Change from the Premiers of Ontario and Québec

Just, ya know, saying

Clearly, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s statement yesterday that emission reduction plans are ‘designed to enrich governments,’ does not reflect the declaration made at the Québec Summit.

People across Canada and the world are worried about climate change. They are concerned about what it is costing us and how it is endangering our environment. As it is written in the declaration, the Prime Minister should recognize that because “Arctic states such as Canada are particularly vulnerable and disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change, adaptation must complement ambitious mitigation measures to address the effects climate change is having on Canada’s northern regions.”
