It's a given that both opposition leaders aren't willing to risk being seen as adverse to the Athabasca Tar Sands or bitumen trafficking lest that cost them the miniscule bucket of votes they might stand to get from Alberta in the next election. Okay, that's off limits, I get it.
Here's something they can do that won't unduly burden their feeble political spines. They can pledge, right now, to ensure that alternative, clean energy technology receives grants, deferrals and subsidies, direct and indirect, equal to those we now lavish on our fossil fuelers. They should top that up with the amount they're shouldering on behalf of Big Fossil for carbon capture and other research efforts.
It's not like I'm asking either of them to grow a pair.
