I didn't know Washington dictated our environmental policy? Its a new phenomenon that we have given up our sovereignty in an area like the environment. Let's be honest here, the so-called Bush Administration (really called Big-oil administration) believes that contrary to just about every ounce of scientific knowledge, greenhouse grasses are not causing global warming.
So, the so called Harper Government (really American neo-con Junior government) , decided to agree with this. This is a sad day for Canadian politics, that our Prime Minister has to consult American propaganda to get his environmental policy. What about all that money that our own government spends on science and the environment. Did he forget that Canadian government funded studies might not agree with his official view on global warming?
No wonder Harper never talks to the media, he will scare us with his brainwashed Republican views on things. He will drive us to to the polls with his ideas of 2 tiered healthcare, and tax cuts for the extremely wealthy. What is next? Tax subsidies for buying giant SUV's? School vouchers? Now I might be fear mongering right now, but its cool to be a Liberal right now. But that damn global warming is heating things up too much!
