The premier of Ontario has accused prime minister Stephen Harperof obstructing efforts to fight climate change and calling on Canadians to make global warming a decisive issue in the coming elections.

In an interview with a mainstream English daily , Kathleen Wynne premier of Ontario, said thatwhen it came to fighting climate change, Harper was an obstruction rather than a help, she said. “There isn’t a collaborative process around any of this, and that is a real problem because it means that we are not supporting each other and we are not pushing each other in a constructive way. It is very confrontational,” she said. “We are taking action in spite of the federal government, quite frankly,” Wynne added. “The federal government at this point is just not helpful.” Wynne opposes a ban on new projects and pipelines in the Alberta tar sands – the fastest-growing source of Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions, and the reason Canada is the only industrialised country to fall short of its emissions targets.
