One day after Americans elected Barack Obama as their next president, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper put forth the idea of drafting a North American climate change pact, the Globe and Mail reported. Several of Mr. Obama's aides are critical Alberta's oil sands and want to eliminate America's dependence on such "dirty oil." It is expected Mr. Harper's climate change pact would protect Alberta's oil sands from tough new climate change regulations by Mr. Obama because they offer a secure North American energy supply.
