The truth will undo Harper's empty climate promise

Media Release, September 6, 2013


OTTAWA -- Sierra Club Canada is warning president Obama not to take Prime Minister Harper's new climate change offer seriously.

“Canada's climate change record since 2006 has been a disaster - nothing more than slick public relations designed to mislead and confuse Canadians and the international community,” said John Bennett, Executive Director of Sierra Club Canada. "I don't believe for a moment that Prime Minister Harper is serious and neither should President Obama. The Harper government has done nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Since taking power the Harper government gutted 40 years of environmental legislation, gagged scientists, walked away from the Kyoto Protocol and (in McCarthyesque fashion) declared war on environmental groups and charities.

Sierra Club Canada will be writing President Obama this week to ensure he is thoroughly acquainted with the Harper government's dubious record on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.

"The truth will undo the Prime Minister's strategy," said Mr. Bennett.
