Under pressure from voters over the $3-billion-a-year carbon tax that it brought in on Jan. 1, Alberta’s NDP government lashed back.
First, on Tuesday the NDP caucus officially demanded that Wildrose Leader Brian Jean remove MLA Don MacIntyre from his post as opposition critic for renewable energy and electricity.
Why? Had MacIntyre been pilfering funds from taxpayers?
Had he been harassing interns? Making racist statements?
No. MacIntyre’s sin was expressing doubts about the manmade climate change theory.
In short, the NDP wanted MacIntyre removed for exercising his right to free expression.
