Walking through the Exhibition Hall, I heard a heck of a kerfuffle, pushing through the crowds I saw that the fuss was about Canada. It was being awarded the "casket of shame" for being the Fossil of the Day.

Collecting the award, David Miller, the Mayor of Toronto, said he was ashamed of the fact that Canada was now the main obstacle to an agreement to a deal at Copenhagen.

And that Canada's cities disagee with their government. Canada's chief negotiator insisted in a briefing Friday morning that his country's target of -3% below 1990 levels are based on science. To the surprise of pretty well everyone - particularly IPCC scientists!
