Is it true that Canada is near the top of the list for countries that produce pollution per capita?

True, but just how high Canada is on the list depends on which report or statistic you happen to read.
A 1998 report says that Canada was the leading consumer of fossil fuels, which probably means that it was also the leading producer of greenhouse gases a decade ago.
A 2004 survey shows that Canada ranked third among greenhouse gas emitters per capita.
Finally, the last link below shows Canada being either 9 or 12 among per capita greenhouse gas emitters depending on whether or not land use is considered.
