Canada's $100M Pledge Brings Climate Change Fight to Poorer Nations

CBC video news segment reports Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper pledged government of Canada to give $100 Million of aid to developing nations particularly vulnerable to climate change. The announcement came during Harper's close of the Sommet de la Francophonie in Quebec City. Representatives from 52 member nations and 13 observer countries attended this year's meeting, and discussions covered topics such as human rights, democracy and the environment. Harper said his government has always been committed to finding a solution to global warming and understands that some poorer countries don't have enough resources to do the same.

This help will go to the countries that are least advanced and small insular states, especially in Africa, the Caribbean and the South Pacific.
