Michael Ignatieff is devoted to the Athabasca Tar Sands. Before he gets himself any deeper, he'd better listen to a few people like David Schindler; Killam Memorial Professor of Ecology at the University of Alberta.
Listen to this short interview with Schindler. It should open your eyes to the devastation facing Alberta.
It's not about some imaginary Liberal war with Alberta and Saskatchewan. It's about doing what's right - for Canada, for Alberta and for Sasktatchewan. It's about not grasping for simplistic - yet wholly unproven - solutions like carbon sequestration. That's sophistry.
Today I e-mailed Michael Ignatieff, including the link above. I've asked him to at least listen to people like Professor Schindler, read their research and findings, before lashing the Liberal Party of Canada to the Tar Sands.
If I get a response, I'll post it.
