Canada calls Kyoto “legacy of an incompetent Liberal government”

[M]eeting Canada’s obligations under Kyoto would cost $13.6bn “That’s $1,600 from every Canadian family – that’s the Kyoto cost to Canadians , that was the legacy of an incompetent Liberal government”.



Canada will formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol on climate change, the minister of the environment has said.

The protocol, initially adopted in Kyoto, Japan, in 1997, is aimed at fighting global warming.

Canada declared four years ago that it did not intend to meet its existing Kyoto Protocol commitments and its annual emissions have risen by about a third since 1990.
