UN says Canada can’t quit Kyoto

Welcome to the UN’s Hotel Kyoto.

Lorne Gunter writes in the National Post:

After federal Environment Minister Peter Kent announced Monday that Canada would be withdrawing from the Kyoto Protocol on carbon emissions, the head of the UN agency that administers the protocol said she would not permit Ottawa to do so.

Christiana Figueres, the Costa Rican diplomat and bureaucrat who is executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said Tuesday, “I regret that Canada has announced it will withdraw,” but, she added, “whether or not Canada is a party to the Kyoto Protocol, it has a legal obligation under the Convention to reduce its emissions.”

Welcome to the UN’s Hotel Kyoto: “You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.”

What arrogance; what rot.

  1. Canada to the UN: “eff you, nasty letter to follow.”
    I’m glad to see at least one country’s leadership has woken up to this scam. Too bad the 52% elected such a butt biscuit to the White House or we’d be standing with them. Oh well… November 6, 2012 – End Dependence Day.

    BTW… doesn’t this UN bunch sound alot like the mooslimes? You may join, but you may NOT leave.

  2. Making agreements with unelected non-governmental governments. Hey, what could go wrong?
    Theoretically, Canada could check out of Hotel UN as well. Theoretically.
