Al Gore urges Canadian action on climate change

Al Gore was in Toronto to promote his movie An Inconvenient Truth. This was covered by a CP story, and by the Toronto Sun (of all papers)! I was unable to find a story the Star (just a movie summary), but the Globe is carrying the CP story.

From the CP story:
"When read the "made-in-Canada" quotes from Environment Minister Rona Ambrose, Gore rolled his eyes and made a flag-waving gesture with his hand."

In other news, apparently our "made-in-Canada" solution includes cutting yet more funding for programs that reduce greenhouse gas emissions:
