Harper Plans to Attend COP15

26 Nov

All along Stephen Harper has said he has no plans to attend this year’s UN Climate Change Conference. Instead, Environment Minister Jim Prentice would represent Canada in Copenhagen. Suddenly, US President Barack Obama and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, two leaders who until recently weren’t planning on attending, will be in Copenhagen to represent their Nations. Under this new pressure, Stephen Harper, thankfully, has decided to grace COP15 with his pressence. I could take this opportunity to demonstrate how yet again Canada has opted to follow in the footsteps of the US as opposed to being a World Leader on its own. However, I am so happy that Stephen Harper has realised how important his being in Copenhagen is, I will drop it. Thank you Stephen Harper! I will see you in Copenhagen.
