PARIS — Canada’s new environment minister is in Paris today taking part in talks with counterparts from a host of countries to lay the groundwork for this month’s global climate change summit.

Catherine McKenna and her fellow ministers are spending the next three days looking for common ground on key issues in advance of the summit that begins Nov. 30.

She’ll also have a number of one-on-one meetings, including with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.

McKenna says Canada is determined to deliver real results on climate change.

Some 80 leaders will be gathering in the French capital to try to reach a binding agreement on reducing greenhouse gases.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to be joined there by most of the premiers and at least some of the opposition party leaders.

Catherine McKenna in Paris for talks ahead of climate summit

  1. Are climate scientists also only 97% certain smoking causes cancer? The exaggeration of vague science after 34 years is still clear for the world to see. Guilty as Bush!

    In a world where information is just an open sewer of untreated in formation, anything can be is legaly exaggerated.
    All we know is that it’s been 34 years of climate action failure, debate, delay, denial and global disbelief.

    But telling children science isn’t allowed to say; “proven” for a CO2 ARMAGEDDON can only be judged as a crime in the coming history books.

    Is this how you doomers want your kids remembering you?

    • Uh, yeah. Smoking isn’t ‘proven’ to cause cancer – it has been shown to have a very high probability of doing so.
      But you already know that science deals in evidence and probability, not ‘proof’, because it’s been explained to you repeatedly after you’ve repeatedly posted the same idiotic comment.

      • The latest statists are showing us that lung cancer is showing up in people who have known smoked a cigarette. Lung cancer Is a much larger killer than breast cancer or prostate cancer. Why is that? Unfortunately, there are different kinds of lung cancer and we are find in people in their 20’s. One must look beyond the obvious causes. Colorectal cancer is another big problem because we aren’t raising enough money to keep ahead of our illnesses leading to death.

        • edit: lung cancer is showing up in people who never smoked a cigarette.

        • Thanks ADD guy, but that has nothing to do with my comment or the one I responded to other than the fact that they all contain the words “lung cancer”.

  2. This guy Justin Trudeau, by the way- is way too young and inexperienced to make independent political decidions on anything. – It is The Canadian Military , CISIS and CIA ops whom have actually lived for extended periods in other parts of the world(which there are always a couple handfuls from most countries in any major city in the world) – They, Make The Decisions about WHAT is to be said in what situations. Even The Canadian Military is not always the best qualified to advise on most things. About their own things within their own borders, yah sure, what else could any country expect….. And, deciding who will be in yer cabinet, well..Even a 9 years age person in Junior School can decide whom they would like to help run The Cookie Club after school or whatever else within those parameters. Justin Trudeau has No Real Life Experience in The Real World. And Anyone can just Go Online and ‘ Read About ‘ any place in the world, sure, get some information. But there is A Major Difference About just ‘ reading about ‘ places online and Actually either having had Lived There, Are Living There, or some place with similar SocioCulturalReligioEconomic competitive parameters. Yah sure, Canadian Intel and Military can ‘ prop ‘ Justie up for many things to make it ‘ seem ‘ that he is acting ‘ independently. – I can tell just looking at him and listening to him that anything this guy says is pretty much Scripted for him….. Sounds very much like he has been listening to reruns of not just his father’s old speeches, but also to Brian Mulroney’s old lines and interjecting ‘ ah….ehh….and….eh …ehhhh.. ‘ Mulroney Style (pseudo-reflective0 pauses when speaking etc Justie is like a High School lunch room attendent or nervous year-end valedictorian sort of thing.. Katherine McKenna is just Another Canadian CLUELESS WONDER, and ABSOLUTE KNOW-NOTHING.
