Letter: Why did Canada send so many to climate conference?

The following is a letter to Niagara Falls MP Tony Baldinelli. A copy was submitted to The Lake Report for publication.

I have just learned that Canada sent 277 delegates to the Glasgow COP 26 conference, the largest number of representatives of any country who attended.

Was this really necessary? Or was this just to look good? 

I do hope the Opposition will challenge the efficacy of this sort of gravy train instead of pointing fingers at Alberta.  

I am in support of the efforts to reel in climate change, but how can 277 people representing Canada be effective?

I await with interest to hear exactly what action Prime Minister Justin Trudeau intends to take to reduce our carbon emissions and also what the cost and carbon count of Canada's attendance was.
