Canadians Want Harpo to Clean Up

The Canadian public isn't put off by skyrocketing gas prices, they still want urgent action to combat climate change from their government.

A Canadian Press/Harris Decima poll found Canadians, by a 2-1 margin, want strong action on the environment as a way to find greener, alternative sources of energy.

Gee, given the level of popular support, what could be holding our Furious Leader back? Oh, silly me, I forgot - it's his boss in Washington and their mutual pals better known as Big Oil.

But wait, didn't these guys just agree to a 50% cut in emissions by 2050 at the G8 summit? Of course they did but, then again, they would have as easily promised everyone a tasty hunk of green cheese from the moon by 2050 if only they'd been asked.

The poll was done at the start of June.

It is now July 8th.

I wonder if that liberal poll was meant to be released while Harper was at the G8.

Why else would they wait 35 days to release the poll?

Oh Dear, now Johnathon is having delusions about a conspiracy between the Libs and Canadian Press/Harris-Decima. Back into your cellar where you've been smoking that stuff Johnny Boy.

Gramps - thanks for the clarification.

It has been updated. When I first posted it had said June 3. Do you really think that I would have done this post otherwise? Be serious.

The poll that appears in the star is vague at best. This poll says that it wants aggressive approach to climate change. O.K. what is the aggressive approach? Does anyone know? I was reading this poll and I haven't seen any mention of Mr.Dion's carbon tax. Has anyone seen it?

The poll released yesterday (Monday) clearly shows that people are not buying Mr.Dion's carbon tax,but I digress.

I agree with MoS. It is nothing more than "hunk of green cheese from the moon" or a large piece of baloney - 2050 eh!
