COP 21

Federal delegation to Paris climate talks numbered almost 300, but more than half were provincial reps

'Our concern is that our delegation was so much larger than any other delegation from around the world that I believe most Canadians will find that to be excessive, especially if it was taxpayers that paid for the travel and accommodation and meal costs,' Conservative MP Ed Fast says.

The Canadian delegation to Paris at the UN Climate Change conference in December included Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, B.C. Premier Christy Clark, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard, Assembly of First Nations national chief Perry Bellegarde, Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna, Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair and Conservative MP Ed Fast.
