Canadian federal government must ratify the Kyoto protocol and at the same time try not to hurt economy.

The Alberta government opposes Kyoto, saying it will hurt the economy and cost thousands of oil-patch jobs.

Martin, the front-running candidate for the Liberal leadership, thinks "Western Canada should never again have to endure 'made-in-Ottawa' discrimination? that?s why he suggested a Commons committee study the matter.

He also suggested Ottawa sell its $1.5-billion stake in Petro-Canada to speed the development of new climate-friendly technology.
