Liberal Senate votes to send Canada back to the stone age

Canada's unelected senate which is dominated by the opposition Liberal Party has voted to force Stephen Harper's Conservative government to enforce the Kyoto Accord. The vote gives the government 4 weeks to draw up plans to implement the accord in full and 6 months to demonstrate progress.

Oddly enough, the Kyoto Accord was signed by the previous Liberal administration back in 1998. It took them four years to actually pass the accord into law. For the next 4 years, the Liberal Government failed to reduce CO2 emissions - they actually continued rising. So the Liberals failed on the environment for 8 years and give the Tories 6 months to sort out the mess. Sounds like typical posturing by a Liberal opposition.

Of course, the fact that the Leader of the Liberals was Environment Minister in the last government demonstrates a remarkable lack of morals on his part.
