Kyoto Bill passes

The Opposition Parties ganged up today to force a new Kyoto Bill through the House of Commons:

Opposition parties pushed through legislation on Wednesday that requires the Conservative government to respect Canada's commitments under the Kyoto accord.

Bill C-288, the Kyoto protocol implementation act, passed in the House by a 161 to 113 vote with the backing of the NDP and the Bloc Quebecois.

The bill also calls on the government to outline, within 60 days, how it intends to meet the Kyoto targets.
Something that the Liberals couldn't do within 13 years when they were in office; something Liberal leader Citizen Dion stated that he could not do, but now expects Stephen Harper's Conservatives to accomplish in 60 days.
