Canada is a signatory on the Kyoto protocol. The current Conservative government does not believe that meeting our Kyoto requirements is important. Canada has also agreed to sign WIPO. Unlike the Conservative attitude towards Kyoto, the federal government (or at least the Minister of Industry) feels that it is important to meet the requirements set forth in the WIPO treaty.
It seems very strange to me that our government should prioritize one promise over another. Puzzling.
