Scrapping Kyoto Commitments

As if to confirm what we all knew was coming:

OTTAWA — Canada will not support attempts by other countries to set deeper emission-reduction targets for the Kyoto Protocol's second phase, according to private instructions to Canadian negotiators in Bonn, Germany.

The instructions obtained by The Globe and Mail also show that Canada wants the climate-change accord phased out in favour of a separate, voluntary deal.

So now the Harper has picked on peaceniks, trade unionists, and environmentalists, as well as Ontario's McGuinty and the Liberal Party.

Gotta wonder who's next.

UPDATE: Canada wants into Asia Pacific Partnership on Climate Change. Thanks to Dymaxion World for the lead.
