Liberal leader Stephane Dion is blogging from the U.N. climate-change talks in Bali, Indonesia. So far, Dion has chronicled his arrival at the talks, a speech he made to local-government leaders and a meeting he held with Yvo de Boer, executive secretary of the Climate Change Secretariat. In his most recent entry, Dion also boasts that while Canada was praised as a hero when these talks were held in Montreal, the Conservative government is receiving so-called "Fossil of the Day" awards from the Climate Action Network.
One wee problem with that boast - Dion himself has received a fossil award or two in the past, including one at the 2004 conference.
