Well here is a reasonable guy from the National Post. Yes quoting the NP again….are they becoming more balanced? I am not adding any CanWest paper to my Best News Bets yet, but I have been paying attention anyways. Don Martin says that Conservative approach to climate change is similar to the horse problem that clogged up New York in the 1800’s.
Don is bang on with this. They Cons have taken a worse case scenario and then embellished upon it without factoring in any of the good things Kyoto will do for our country and our industry. It says nothing about what the costs will be if we don’t implement Kyoto. In the end I couldn’t agree with Don more than when he calls the Con report horse pucky. Do the Cons really think Canadians are going to stand by while they do nothing?
Also Bourque Newswatch reports today that Cons encouragment of biofuels development is having the desired effect and now a massive Biofuels plant for Alberta. I posted on this issue before and I can see that the Cons will not be happy until I am paying an arm and a leg now for my basic groceries. I do not believe we should be getting fuel for our cars from our food…period. The farmers can use it, they always have, but that’s it. Any futher use will just hurt Canadians, the environment and the poor.
