Who's signing up to Copenhagen?

So far, nearly nobody:

Only four countries -- Australia, Canada, Papua New Guinea and the Maldives -- have signed the Copenhagen Accord so far ...
That's some list! Way to go Canada, that puts us in great company - a country run by a leftist AGW loon and two real nobodies.

Meanwhile the countries generating the greatest growth in atmospheric CO2 are sensibly re-thinking things:

The Indian and Chinese governments have had a rethink on signing the Copenhagen Accord, officials said on Saturday...
And, moreover:

With the Democrats losing in one of their strongholds, the chances
of the climate bill going through the US senate have receded dramatically.

Update: To be fair and upfront, after further searching I admit it's difficult to find anything regarding Canada having "signed" on to the Copenhagen Accord. There's nothing to that effect on Environment Canada's webpages. And outside of the above link I could find no direct statements saying so. Another source reporting from New Delhi said:
... Canada, Australia, the Maldives and Papua New Guinea have disclosed
their intention to sign the Copenhagen Accord.
As for Canada's actual position coming out of COP 15, it's summarized reasonably well by the CBC here (and here). The video summary also shows that, as we all know by now, climate "activists" absolutely detest Harper's climate policy. So kudos to the Harper government for at least achieving that much.

We signed the Accord!!??
How did that slip under the radar?

Just once I'd like the Conservative government to take a stand AGAINST climate change and until they do I have to say that my vote will not be a 'definite' in the next election.

Just another reason not to vote for the conmen has long has Harper the hypocrite liar and coward is in charge. So once again I will be staying home on election day.

Interesting that the Canadian MSM has not written of this. Doesn't fit their narrative that Harper obstructs.
