A Thought On The Thorne Speech

The Thorne Speech last night

(http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071017.wthrone17/BNSto
ry/National/home)

It is a push by Harper to model Canada into a USA.

1) Tougher crime bill (just like in the US)
2) Discarding Kyoto (just like US did)
3) Establish permanent stations in Arctic regions (thereby posturing against
Russia and Denmark which something US does against allies all the time)
4) Put a figure on cut on greenhouse gases (50 to 70%) by the year 2050 with
no clue on how to begin (exactly like US)

Why Harper is so enamoured with US?
