Canada will announce next month that it will formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, reports CTV’s Roger Smith.
The news came as Environment Minister Peter Kent prepared for a climate conference in Durban, South Africa, with delegates from 190 countries seeking a new international agreement for cutting emissions.
“Canada goes to Durban with a number of countries sharing the same objective, and that is to put Kyoto behind us,” said Kent in the House of Commons on Nov 22.
The accord is set to expire next year.
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May called the move “a very damaging act of sabotage.”
