Prime Minister Stephen Harper has definitively slammed the door on regulating Canada’s oil and gas sector, calling it a “crazy, crazy” economic policy under current global oil prices.

His comments in the House of Commons come as international talks are underway in Lima, Peru, in an effort to reach a new post-2020 global agreement on curbing greenhouse gas emissions.

Harper was emphatic that Canada will not move unilaterally to curb fast-rising emissions from Alberta’s oilsands.
