Peter Kent said the protocol "does not represent a way forward for Canada" and the country would face crippling fines for failing to meet its targets.

He said the cost of meeting Canada's obligations under Kyoto would cost $13.6bn (10.3bn euros; £8.7bn): "That's $1,600 from every Canadian family - that's the Kyoto cost to Canadians.

Always putting Canada's interests first
Not even thinking about what Kyoto means to the global situation as a whole.

They are too lax and un-commited to meet Kyoto standards...so then just reneg on the whole deal...simply to avoid fines and actually having to DO something about it.

What a blood copout.........

Canada used to be a world leader in environmental conservation and global outlook...now it's becoming a lethargic passenger on the world stage.
