The Rats Scurry for Cover
Russ George must be wondering where everybody went. The rogue geoengineer behind the dumping of 100-tonnes of iron sulphate off the Charlottes in July suddenly doesn't have all the friends he had just a few months back.
Harper EnviroShill Peter Kent says he only learned about it just this week. Oh my goodness, gosh, how could this have happened right under Pete's nose?
Kent, responding to questions in Parliament, said spreading iron on the ocean appears to be illegal.
"Environment Canada was not asked to approve this apparent violation of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act," Kent said.
"Anyone who contravenes environmental law should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."
Adam Sweet, Kent's press hack, said his boss was entirely in the dark. "Until three days ago, this matter had not been elevated to the minister's attention. Upon being notified, he immediately sought answers into the scope of Environment Canada's involvement."
It had "not been elevated" to Kent's attention which suggests that someone at EnviroCan knew about it but kept it from the minister. Really? This is the same shill who is running cover for the proposed supertanker traffic through B.C.'s treacherous coastal waters, right? And he's utterly clueless about what's going on in those waters, right?
Green Party leader Elizabeth May pointed out the painfully obvious, "This incident should be a wakeup call that we don't have a handle on this."
