Please let some of the aura rub off on me (and his intelligence, and wit, and decency, and his popularity... and his... ). Please... oh please! Pretty please!
Harper - climate change denier-in-chief - decides if China and Obama are going, he'd look the fool if he didn't join in.
Look for some meaningless statements from Harper: "We've tried so hard to solve this problem... but the (insert nation/group/target here) just weren't willing to come to the table..." Or... "This was a key step in the path to a solution" (that Canada did not even come close to leading on...)...
Canada has been dubbed in international pariah by nations serious about solving global warming/climate change. Let's hope the Harper Conservatives are shamed into acting by the Obama-effect/aura. Wishful thinking really. Harper (and more importantly - his base) have their lips firmly affixed to the base of every oil rig in Alberta.
