Government is supporting extreme Warmist lobby - From Jack Burton

I came upon the attached article on a Canadian Government web site.

I wonder who authorizes this kind of expense. With these people there is no question of whether there is such a thing as man made climate change but only that it is a fact of life and we should do everything possible to arrange a inordinately large representation of aboriginal natives to be sent to Copenhagen. For what reason we would do this, I have no idea.
