Hey, Justin - and You Too Cathy. Can This Lady Have a Word With You?
Well, in the eyes of the Trudeau government, black is green, and the struggle to deal with climate change is trumped by threats to national unity. Our prime minister tells us that ramping up the production and export of bitumen is Canada's magic wand to a green, clean energy future. EnviroMin Catherine McKenna meanwhile tells us we can't really take a hard line on carbon emissions because it might endanger national unity.
Harvard prof, Naomi Oreskes, says Mr. Trudeau's fantasy is, well, untenable and, by implication, Ms. McKenna's feckless approach to GHG emissions is simply a surrender wrapped in a pretty face.
