This is really nice that Harper wants to take a little Bear out of his comfort zone; so he can try to make environmental points. If this is about wildlife, then why doesn't the Canadian Gov't pay to set up Webcams in that little Bears domain? Then all of us can watch him/her, and donate our money to the cause?

I'm ready to forgo my weekly 12 pack (32 dollars) for a month; To not see this little Bear shipped to Canada, but to send my beer money to him/her at home in Szechuan Province.
