Senate kills "irresponsible" climate bill

Thanks to the Senate it's bye-bye to Bill C-311:
The defeat by unelected senators of the bill known as the Climate Change Accountability Act, which was introduced in the House by New Democrat MP Bruce Hyer, prompted cries of indignation from NDP Leader Jack Layton and the Liberals who sponsored it in the Senate.
... Mr. Harper replied that his Conservative Party has been consistent in its opposition to Bill C-311, which, he said, was a “completely irresponsible” piece of legislation.
“It sets irresponsible targets, does not lay out any measure of achieving them, other than by shutting down sections of the Canadian economy and throwing hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of people out of work,” Mr. Harper said....
Good riddance.
