Well Baird’s green plan appears to be wonderful news for the Alberta….soon to be Saskatchewan…..oilsand’s industry. The Globe and Mail reports,
The energy industry’s sanctimonious “it’s a good balance” when the Con non-plan first came out is just disgusting. CanWest reports,
Alberta’s rapidly expanding oilsands sector will be the only Canadian industry allowed to increase smog-causing pollution over the next decade, according to a newly released document about the Conservative government’s clean air regulations from Environment Canada.
The Harper government is going to shut down and scatter from this session of parliament as quickly as possible. People don’t have a lot of good things to say about our wrong-way government right now and a break will give them a chance to regroup. Scott over at DiaTribes appears to agree a summer break is the best and only Con game plan they have right now. If they get another summer to do absolutely nothing on the environment; we allow this escape at our own peril. (h/t to Adrian MacNair).
I think its going to be a long hot summer. I wouldn’t count on people forgetting about Con idiocy on the environment file.
