Baird is deceiving the UN too

Environment minister John Baird is not only deceiving Canadians:

Canada has not said whether it will breach the U.N.-sponsored Kyoto Protocol even though the country's new climate change plan is weaker than its goals under the international pact, the U.N. climate chief said on Tuesday.
This is what conservatives mean when they say they are accepting the principles of Kyoto; we like Kyoto, but we're not saying that we're going to comply or not. Trust us, we're good Canadians.
Canada is way over target and its plans to extract oil from sands in northern Alberta, a highly energy intensive process, could deflect it further.
Oil is good; I don't see an issue here.
The Conservative government last week laid out new plans on tackling climate change which appeared to confirm it felt Kyoto was unachievable.

"It's not entirely clear to me how the two (sets of targets) relate to each other," U.N. climate chief Yvo de Boer said in a telephone interview.

"If a country signs an international agreement then I assume they stand by that agreement until they tell me otherwise."

Sure, it would be fair to assume that. But not with the current neo-con administration, Yvo!
"They've not told us they intend to back away from Kyoto."
No, and they won't either. Their deceiving inactions are not limited to the exposure of the Canadian public. Afghan detainees (those terrorists) have suffered from Conservative inaction, and it look like the United Nations (those idiots) are next.
