OTTAWA, December 10, 2002 ( – The Canadian House of Commons, by a vote of 195-77 today, approved ratification of the Kyoto protocol. Prime Minister Jean Chretien said he will formally ratify the protocol by the end of the year.  The Canadian Alliance and Conservative parties voted against ratification with Alliance leader Stephen Harper, says the Toronto Sun, stating Canadians “should expect the worst” regarding the unknown effects of the protocol on the nation. The National Post also reports Harper stating ‘‘It was an incredibly stupid decision, and without precedent, to adopt an international accord with enormous economic ramifications potentially for this country and to do so without a plan.’‘
