Climate Change Contrasts

Moving forward, playing a leadership role:

Moving backwards, reducing Canada's influence on a pressing global issue:

For all the Conservatives sound and fury about "Canada's Back", and the important they placed in the throne speech on improving Canada's role in the world, once again the Conservatives are showing that "Canada's Backwards", by not only dismissing, but openly being spiteful of global frameworks and agreements, and rapidly moving Canada from a global leader to a global loser.

That even China is making more relative progress, and shows more enthusiasm for an effective climate change agreement, while the Conservatives seem more than willing to wrong-foot the world community by deliberately setting the process up for failure shows that the Conservatives recklessness is destroying Canadian leadership in the world.
