Canada continued to get thrashed at the Copenhagen environment summit this week. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s not-so-green reputation preceded him and his political opposition have been quick to capitalize on the bad press. But Vancouver’s Mayor and successful green entrepreneur Gregor Robertson was also on the scene, a safe distance away.
Will we be best served by his separateness from the federal leadership at this summit when it comes time to ask for federal resources to fund our green schemes? Perhaps a more united front from the Canadian contingent would have worked better.
I expand on these ideas in my new Granville Online article, Mr. Happy Planet versus Darth Vader. Enjoy.
