Global Warming? Don't Blame Ontario

Toronto Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein has a good column today highlighting the political ineptitude surrounding the fight against "global warming".

Goldstein skewers the Liberal environment critic, David McGuinty, who just happens to be the brother of Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.

Noting how David is trashing the Conservative green record, Goldstein adds: "Why doesn't he phone his brother, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, and urge him to shut down Ontario's Nanticoke coal-fired generating station, Canada's single largest greenhouse gas emitter?"

Good point.

I might add that David has also failed to take his brother to task for his enthusiastic support of a government-subsidized GM plant in Oshawa which will churn out Camaros, gas-guzzling "muscle cars".

Apparently, the Liberals believe greenhouse gas emissions only count if they come out of Alberta.

I watched Question Period yesterday.
The Liberals have NOTHING!!! The looks on the faces surrounding Dion when he gets up to ask a question speak volumes. Iggy for the most part always looks like he's going to throw up. I'm betting Harvard looks pretty good to him right now.

I can't for the life of me understand Jack Layton. Anyone?
