The conservative administration "is trying to push global climate change off the federal map, shutting down the main federal website on the topic and removing mention of it from speeches and postings" -- in Canada. Two liberal officials have protested the demise of the website, along with other examples of Tories' "expunging previous government news releases and other climate change information from federal websites." The defunct website directs people to two other sites, but neither provides the "detailed information on climate-change theories, measures to combat it, and how it might affect the economy, environment and health of Canadians," that the old climate change site did. Canadian environmentalist John Godfrey said the Tories appear to be removing "as many references as possible on government websites to the Kyoto climate change protocol."
