Green Blues

About the best thing I can say about the Conservative government's "Green Plan" is that it will probably do less damage to the economy than a Liberal "Green Plan."

But that's cold comfort.

The fact is we are no longer debating whether we should implement a dopey treaty; we are now debating how much we should wreck the economy.

That's not a good road to go down.

No matter who wins that debate Canadians will be forced to shell out; and for what?

Let's face it, the Tory plan will do nothing to halt "global warming" and it will do nothing to impact on global weather conditions.

No plan would have an impact. We could de-industrialize the whole country and live in dark cold caves and it still wouldn't make any difference.

The only reason politcians are pushing this "Green" junk is to win votes.

It has nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with wooing the "Suzuki Nation."

Me I preferred the Liberal approach.

Talk about the importance of Kyoto but do nothing.

That's one Liberal policy I wish the Tories would copy.

Banning light bulbs. I'm considering voting NDP next election.

If I really wanted dim-witted policies implemented, I'd have voted for the low-wattage leader.

This "Conservative" policy is a completely unfair subsidy to the Canadian optical industry.
