Premiers Agree to Attend Paris Summit

Canada’s premiers huddled by teleconference call Thursday and agreed that everyone not facing an election campaign will attend December’s climate change summit in Paris with prime minister-designate Justin Trudeau, The Canadian Press has learned.

Monday’s surprising Liberal majority has cleared the path for an invigorated Canadian presence at the United Nations climate conference, known as COP21, that begins Nov. 30.

Trudeau, who was not part of the premiers’ conference call, promised to invite the provincial leaders to Paris if elected, recognizing the leading role provinces have taken on the climate policy front over the past decade.

    The Premiers have no business there. Are all the state governors going too? How ’bout all the mayors? How ’bout the chief of police and the fire chief.
    These people are despicable.

    Well it should be fun as they watch China and India promise to “do something” in 2030 if the West ponies up a hundred billion a year and cuts it’s GDP by 30 percent.

    Good times!
