Instead, there was an air of jubilation and joviality in the House of Commons in the moments before and after the vote.

OTTAWA?The United States intends to use next week's U.N. climate change conference in Montreal as part of a push to force the eventual elimination of the pollution caps that the Kyoto pact was specifically created to enforce.

And Canada has made preliminary moves to join the American efforts.
