"Punishing the West?"
According to a Strategic Counsel poll in the Globe and Mail today, the vast majority (63%) of Canadians think we should at least attempt to keep our Kyoto commitments, while less than a third (30%) believe we should attempt a "made-in-Canada" solution. (7% don't know.)
What's most striking is that the poll numbers out west are:
Kyoto - 55%
"Made-in-Canada" - 37%
Don't know - 8%
If environmentalism in general and Kyoto in particular is "punishing the west," as so many opponents like to claim, then the west must be pretty masochistic.
