Conservatives support very few environmental initiatives, Extrafire. They normally don’t believe in saving the environment. To them, human beings come first, anything else (animals, environment, ecology) can perish.
Oh how you twist and squirm! Until quite recently the city of Victoria dumped all its sewage into the sea untreated. It wasn't any safety problem. And if safety is involved, somehow it's not environmental any more? A buddy of mine lived in Costa Rica for a couple years. Sewage there went directly from houses into a creek, but according to you that's not an evironmental concern.
I don’t think it needs a rocket scientist to figure out that dumping raw sewage into lakes and rivers is a safety issue. If you happen to drink that water it will make you sick.
An environmental issue is one where there no immediate danger to safety, but there may be long term danger. That is where drilling in Alaska, cap and trade etc. come into picture.
Canadian or US? I support the idea of protecting species that are endangered by human activity. But the act in the US has been used more to advance political agendas than to protect creatures.
So you don’t think much of endangered species legislation. About what I figured.
