With some comments of my own in brackets):

Councillor Shelley Carroll apologizes for 'F the police' Twitter like

By Joe Warmington

Published: May 31, 2019. Updated: May 31, 2019 10:22 AM EDT

Filed Under: Toronto SUN/ News/ Toronto & GTA

Toronto Councillor Shelley Carroll has apologized for liking an activist’s tweet disparaging Peel Regional Police’s handling of a young girl.

The Toronto Police Association (TPA) had called out Carroll for liking the tweet by Desmond Cole, who had written “f*** the police” Thursday in response to Peel cops handcuffing a six-year-old black girl in a Mississauga school in 2016 — a case that is before the Ontario Human Rights Commission.

(Yes - and never mind that the child was cuffed to prevent her going wild and either hurting herself or others! The child apparently has a LONG HISTORY of emotional and violent outbursts- biting and kicking teachers and other students and hand cuffs seem to me like a better restraint than having cops holding her down by FORCE so she will not injure others or herself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The child is of course from a visible minority- which is why Desmond Cole- the man who never met a white person he could respect- is involved!! The child`s mother is of course outraged at the police “BRUTALITY” - but NEVER MIND that IT WAS FRUSTRATED school staff who called the cops because they did not know what to do with the child who had been kicking and biting everybody within reach!! Hence the presence of cops- AND THE CUFFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And one has to ask if the child`s behaviour is a sign of mental issues?? Or if the child`s behaviour is a sign of REALLY LOUSY PARENTING - backed up by GROSSLY miss-placed anger at the “white privilege” bigotry that LIE-berals so often promote?? Has the LIE-beral bigotry POISONED the minds of some of our citizens - and their children??????????????)

(WE KNOW Desmond Cole is well beyond any rational position on this sort of stuff!! Cole routinely rages at all white society; so is the child`s mother an equally “out there” BIGOT as well?? Has Mom communicated her contempt to her child- resulting in the shocking behaviour?????????????)

(And now we KNOW that city councillor Shelly Carrol- the DOUBLE DIPPING master HOG who CONNED tax payers with her city hall “severance pay” deal in 2018 - exposed by Sun writer Sue-Ann Levy- IS NOT FIT to represent all the people of her riding !! Her support of crazy man Cole marks her as being totally UN- FIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“Her liking that tweet was inappropriate,” TPA president Mike McCormack said, while waiting for Carroll to respond. “Short of this being an accident, she needs to apologize.”

(Calling Carrols comment “inappropriate” is like suggesting nuclear explosions devalue real estate and upset peoples lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

McCormack said such ‘f*** the police’ messages could put officers at risk.

“It is troubling,” he said. “I mean, she’s an elected city councillor and former police board member. She knows this is a complicated matter and not reflecting all police.”

A tweet from Desmond Cole liked by Shelley Carroll

In a statement to the Toronto Sun Friday morning, Carroll said she is sorry and respects the police.

“I want to apologize for liking the tweet,” she said in an email. “It does not reflect my personal sentiments about the police, for whom I have the utmost respect.

(OH MY!! LIE-berals offer such wonderful EXCUSES - ONLY AFTER they get called out!! But what else should we expect from Carroll- the former leader of the Cdn Communist Party!! To suggest her judgement is NOT standard Cdn issue is also a HUGE UNDERSTATEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“I liked the tweet while travelling to save the article attached to the tweet to read later, which was not good judgment on my part.

(As a long time city councillor, Carroll is surely very familiar with Cole and his RACIST CRAP!! There is NO situation were a politician should EVER blindly assume Cole is talking logically -for a change!! And given the behaviour of some of our kids- there is also NO situation where a politician should ever condemn the cops without first making an HONEST investigation of the truth!!)

(By “liking the tweet” without even reading it fully- Carroll condemns herself and exposes her irrational mind set!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

“Again, I sincerely apologize for any upset caused.”

(Yers- and shall we ask if she also prayed she would not lose any votes as a result of her disgraceful public display of SKEWED VALUES?? WE KNOW Carroll would be defiant if she thought support for Cole would win her more votes!!!!!!!!)
McCormack said the TPA accepts her apology.

The case in question “is being litigated and talked about in the right forum” and “is something that deserves healthy debate,” he said earlier.

But to use the “f*** the police” approach as Cole, a Newstalk1010 host who is a well-known critic of police, did and have the perceived support of a councillor “adds legitimacy to an anti-police narrative that does not help anybody.”

(There is the heart of this vile matter!! That LIE-berals REALLY DO WANT TO F+++ the police ; AND SCREW OVER the rest of us as well!! Carroll exposed her TRUE SELF by “liking” Coles tweet without fully reading it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Any ordinary Cdn would treat a Cole tweet as POTENTIALLY TOXIC at the best of times!! ALL LIE-beral policy has the undermining of white society at its BLACK Soviet Socialist HEART !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Smith: Trudeau is blocking Alberta from saving the planet

Quote:

Alberta’s energy industry has solved carbon dioxide. That’s what you need to know as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau drives the final stake into the heart of our province’s innovative oil and gas sector with his obnoxious bills C-48 and C-69.
Alberta’s energy industry is on the cusp of saving the planet. I believe this after sitting through three days and nearly 50 presentations from CEOs, scientists, financiers and other energy experts at the Global Petroleum Show this week. It was like being in a parallel universe.
In 2016, a group of industry leaders created the Natural Gas Innovation Fund and began funding projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The projects they seeded are too numerous to mention, but energy industry CEO Sue Riddell Rose said we are close to being able to achieve zero-emissions natural gas.
You have to pause for a minute to appreciate the breathtaking implications of what that would mean.
Zero-emissions natural gas would have a smaller environmental footprint than every other energy source, including wind, solar and hydro.
Consider this: The amount of land needed for a drilling pad is a fraction of what is needed for wind, solar or hydro installations, particularly with horizontal fracking able to reach multiple sites and depths from a single pad. Unlike wind turbines, natural gas wells don’t kill migratory birds and bats. Unlike solar, natural gas does not require massive mining operations of rare earth metals in regimes that employ child labour. Unlike hydro, it doesn’t destroy fish habitat or permanently flood vast areas. After a well is depleted, we have proven methods to reclaim the land and restore it to its natural condition. We still have no effective solution to recycle batteries, wind turbines and solar panels. Natural gas is also reliable and available whenever it is needed, not just when the wind blows or the sun shines.
In the process of figuring out how to capture carbon dioxide, researchers have discovered it is also extremely valuable.
Scientists at the University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering developed a technique to turn natural gas and carbon dioxide into solid carbon nanofibers that can be used in innumerable applications, including construction, car parts, airplanes, batteries — virtually anything that uses steel could be replaced with carbon nanofibres that are up to 20 times stronger. Another researcher, Antonio Anselmo, CEO of ChemBioPower, has developed a process to use methane and carbon dioxide to produce dimethyl ether as a replacement for diesel, with up to 47 per cent savings in carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon XPrize finalists have proposals for other uses of carbon dioxide, including concrete and alternative fuels.
If Alberta’s oilsands producers used zero-emissions natural gas, they would have a lower greenhouse gas profile than their competitors. Apply this to any energy-intensive industry. If aluminum, concrete or steel producers used zero-emissions energy, they would have bragging rights as low emitters over their competitors, such as coal-burning China.
We could help with that too. Canada could become a leading liquid natural gas exporter, displacing the use of coal internationally and further reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. As the world grows to nine billion people by 2050, zero-emissions natural gas offers the best hope that everyone on the planet could achieve the same standard of living we already enjoy, without increasing emissions.
That is the best possible future.
But just when our energy industry has figured out the solution to the greatest problem of our time, Trudeau’s tanker ban and no-more-pipelines bills will be the death blow. Capital has already fled. These bills will put our industry in the financial deep freeze.
Trudeau could have a triple win: restore national unity, re-energize the Canadian economy and watch our industry lead the world in developing zero-carbon energy.
Instead, it will be a triple loss. Canada will be fractured, the energy industry will be decimated, and the planet will be no further toward weaning itself off high-carbon fuels.

If true it'll be a game changer, imagine Cliffy the Oil patch will save the world without a wealth transfer tax Lol

Your LIE-beral overlords keep telling us :


"WE need to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Natural gas IS A FOSSIL FUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Therefore if we can create a way to burn it..................................


THAT IS TOTALLY CLEAN............................................. ............


THIS WILL let us have our cake and eat it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We could then BOTH USE Natural gas AND REDUCE the effect of burning fossil fuel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But that would RUIN the PLANNED LIE-beral electricity PRICE GOUGING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Fossil fuel production is in the hands of the private sector!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


Electricity production is in the hands of GOVT and its union HOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals LIKE having POWER over us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



LIE-beral opposition to clean burning natural gas IS NOT motivated by the environment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


LIE-berals DESPERATELY WANT an all electric powered world..........................................


SO THEY CAN PRICE GOUGE............................................. ....


and GRAVY GRAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


LIE-beral desire for an all electric world is nothing but a POLITICAL POWER GRAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals are motivated by EXACTLY the same emotions.......................................

Climate Barbie saving Canada for her kids again

National climate emergency declared by House of Commons

Quote:

The House of Commons passed a motion to declare a national climate emergency in Canada on Monday night.
The motion was put forward by Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna, and it passed with 186 votes to 63.
It declares a national climate emergency, and supports the country's commitment to meeting the emissions targets outlined in the Paris Agreement.
"The science shows that Canada is warming at twice the global average and that we need to meet our international obligations," she wrote.

"That's why I'm voting for the motion and that's why Canada's already taking action."
A scientific report from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) released in April found tha Canada is warming up at twice the rate of the rest of the world, and that the warming effect is "effectively irreversible."
More than 40 scientists worked on the report. They said that Canadians will end up with 10 times as many deadly heat waves and twice as many extreme rainstorms if nothing is done to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The motion described climate change as a "real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity, that impacts the environment, biodiversity, Canadians' health, and the Canadian economy."
The motion declares that "Canada is in a national climate emergency which requires, as a response, that Canada commit to meeting its national emission target under the Paris Agreement and to making deeper reductions in line with the agreement's objective of holding global warming below two degrees Celsius and pursuing efforts to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius."...………...More

Tax credits, penalizing big polluters, key to Conservative climate plan

Quote:

OTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says his climate plan will be "Canada's best chance" to hit its targets under the Paris climate-change agreement and that it can happen without a carbon tax.
Scheer outlined his climate policy in the backyard of a private home in rural Chelsea, Que., Wednesday evening, not far from where flooding linked to climate change hit for the second time in three years this spring. Flies and mosquitoes swarmed and a handful of protesters gathered on the gravel road in front of the property.
"Conservatives fundamentally believe that you cannot tax your way to a cleaner environment," Scheer said. "Instead, the answer lies in technology."
The environment, and climate change in particular, are garnering the most attention ever heading into a federal campaign as Canadians in all parts of the country are dealing with more frequent forest fires, droughts, floods and storms.
The plan does not specify how much any of its 55 elements would cut emissions and suggests Canada's path to meeting the targets would include using Canadian products to reduce emissions in other countries.
"Greenhouse-gas emissions do not recognize borders," Scheer said. "Nor are the impacts of climate change proportional to any one country’s emissions. Whether emissions are reduced in Canada or in China, the scientific impact on global climate change is the exact same."
His platform, dubbed A Real Plan to Protect Our Environment, looks at introducing a capital cost allowance for industries that show they are reducing emissions in other countries. He specifically mentions using Canadian liquefied natural gas to replace coal as a source of electricity and exporting more Canadian aluminum, which he says is made with fewer emissions than aluminum in other countries.
Canada's commitment under the Paris climate-change agreement is to cut emissions to 70 per cent of what they were in 2005 before 2030. Canada needs to get to 513 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year to hit that target. In 2017, the most recent year for which statistics have been compiled, Canada's emissions were 716 million tonnes.
There is an allowance in the Paris accord for "co-operative mechanisms," which allow for reductions in one country to be counted towards the targets of another country as long as both countries agree. The rules for that allowance have not yet been set and the intention was for it to be used for countries to strengthen their targets beyond the original Paris commitments.
The targets in the Paris accord are not legally binding, however, so there is no monetary penalty if Canada misses them. In a question-and-answer session after the speech, Scheer refused to be drawn on how much his plan could be expected to reduce Canada's emissions.
Canada's existing climate plan under the Liberal government leaves the country about 80 million tonnes shy of its Paris targets in 2030. The national price on carbon, set at $20 a tonne this year, rising to $50 a tonne by 2022, will reduce emissions between 50 million and 60 million tonnes a year, an Environment Canada analysis says.
Scheer's plan is to make scrapping that carbon tax one of his first actions as prime minister.
He also intends to replace the Liberals' system for applying the carbon tax to major industrial emitters with one that requires them to invest in clean technology for their own companies.
Scheer promises to give companies a tax break on income earned from developing and patenting green technology in Canada. Homeowners will get a tax credit worth as much as $2,850 for making energy-efficiency upgrades to their homes, such as installing solar panels or putting in better-insulated windows.
He also intends to create a green-technology fund with $250 million in federal money to draw private investments in green technology that could repay the federal contributions when the technology is sold.
Liberal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna took to a microphone on Parliament Hill to scorn the Tory plan shortly after Scheer finished talking.
"I guess we now know why Andrew Scheer waited until the dying hours of this Parliament to shovel out his ideas to tackle climate change," she said. "It's because he has a fake plan. No numbers, no serious measures and no commitment to move the needle on climate action. He says we can save the planet but we don't have to make any changes. Pollution can be free, we can burn coal, develop oil forever, build as many pipelines as oil lobbyists want. Just invent some technologies and sell them to other countries — that'll do it. Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that. The Paris agreement requires every country to do their part … You can't export your way out of this problem."
The New Democrats' Peter Julian called the Tory plan "a collection of boutique tax credits and a rebranding exercise ... But I would say to the Conservatives, 'Nice pictures, though.' Because that's the only benefit I see from the plan they presented today."
Environment groups likewise panned the Scheer plan, saying it is similar to requests from the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, which released a climate plan a few weeks ago.
"This is a plan only an oil lobbyist could love," said Keith Stewart, a senior energy strategist at Greenpeace Canada.
Catherine Abreu, executive director of the Climate Action Network Canada, said the Scheer strategy is a research-and-development plan, not a climate-action policy.
"This might be a plan to cut other things but it is not a plan to cut emissions," said Abreu. "Is Canada somehow going to save the world by increasing our own emissions?"

Soooo according to Climate Barbie you can't reduce emissions and boost the economy at the same time, only a Carbon tax will suffice, interesting

THERE ARE ACTUALLY SOLUTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Its just that NONE of the solutions are ACCEPTABLE........................................ ...


to either LIE-berals or their civil service union HOG allies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



As an example- during the LIE-beral Chretien era......................................


there was a govt program to offer grants to mining companies and others that used compressed air to drive assorted machinery..........


Companies that used those grants were able to save about TWENTY FIVE PERCENT off their electricity bills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Replacing aging air hoses and connectors as well ..........................................


meant MUCH REDUCED AIR LEAKAGE and REDUCED WEAR on compressors ..............................................


AND lowered electricity bills as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Or we could look the recent HUGE CONTROVERSY over that $12 million dollar GIFT to Loblaws...............................


to buy new freezers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


Loblaws WILL SAVE SUBSTANTIALLY on its electric bill with new freezers.......................................... ....


but the great question is WHY ordinary people SHOULD BE FOOTING THE BILLS.......................................


for LIE-beral CORPORATE FRIENDS???????????????????????????????????



LIE-beral policy is entirely MUDDLED and two faced!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


How can LIE-berals hand out grand grants to corporations................................


and then turn around and call corporations a bunch of greedy tax cheats?????????????????????????????


HOGS INSIST that corporations are GREEDY....................................


yet the HOGS SAY NOTHING about the LIE-beral Billion Dollar GIFT to Bombardier........................................ ...


and HOGS HAVE NOTHING to say about the Lavalin BRIBERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Civil service union HOGS, NDPers and Greenies have launched a campaign to tell us corporations do not pay their fair share of taxes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And LIE-berals desperately NEED HOG VOTES................................


so how can LIE-berals tax corporations "fairly" so HOGS can have their GRAVY..................................


and at the same time LIE-berals NEED to encourage corporations to hire Cdns..........................................


and PAY THEM WELL..............................................


AND LIE-berals want corporations to spend HUGE MONEY to "modernize" and run cleaner and greener????????????????????


The Socialist NITWITS are spinning in circles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!


LIE-beral policy demonstrates that LIE-berals are BADLY OVER DRAWN at the Idea Bank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals COULD reduce Cdn carbon production by CUTTING GRAVY to HOGS.................................


so the HOGS will do as ordinary people do......................................


meaning they will walk more and drive less..............................................


will drive smaller more fuel efficient vehicles.......................................... ....


will spend less time messing with gas guzzling TOYS like atv`s and Seadoos........................................


and MOST IMPORTANT...............................


less gravy for HOGS means they will FLY LESS OFTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And air travel is THE BIGGEST AND MOST DAMAGING POLLUTER- related to ANY FORM OF TRANSPORTATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


BUT LIE-berals will do NONE of these things............................................


because it will cost them HOG VOTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-beral policy is UTTERLY INCONSISTENT with either Reason or Logic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

And what about the Arctic? You know what's interesting about the Arctic ice claims? They are based off the 1979 sea ice extent. Why is that important? For two reasons. 1) It's the first year that NASA started tracking sea ice extent with satellites. And 2) 1979 had the highest sea ice extent in over 50 years. 1979 was an anomaly and yet THAT is the base year that sea ice extent is judged by.

But here's the real issue and it's bullshit. Canada is being made a pariah for no good reason. In 2017 the entire country generated 652.3 TWh of electricity. Of that, only 19% was derived from fossil fuels from all sources. The other 81% comes from clean energy sources of which 60% was hydroelectric. Jesus Christ, when it comes to power generation we're doing better than at least half the Eurotrash countries the progtards keep pointing to as fine examples to follow.

In 2017 Canada generated 3% of the global total of electricity while only generating 1.6% of the total global GHG emissions, from ALL sources; industrial, agricultural, transportation, the energy sector etc.

Now the latest claim coming from foreign sources is that our natgas is dirtier than coal. It hasn't gained much traction, yet. But I can see enough morons in Canada being stupid enough to buy it. They were stupid enough to buy the smear campaign against our oil.

Joe Oliver: Here’s a truth few dare to utter: Canada will benefit from climate change

Quote:

Why should Canada fight climate change?
Finally, someone proclaimed an obvious truth that few dare to utter publicly. According to Moody’s Analytics, Canada will benefit from climate change. Although it will shock many, this forecast should surprise no one. Canada is a very large, cold country, with 90 per cent of its population huddled within 100 miles of its southern border and an enormous agricultural potential if the land warms up. There will also be new opportunities for oil, gas and mineral development in the Arctic. And let’s not ignore the greater personal comfort of living in a more hospitable climate.
According to a CBC story about Moody’s study, “when all the changes to things like tourism demand, crop yields and the growing season are factored in, there’s a slight net positive.”

Assuming a one-degree Celsius temperature rise, Moody’s calculates that our economy would be unaffected in 2048. A rise of 2.4 degrees would increase GDP by 0.1 per cent and four degrees would boost it by 0.3 per cent. Not much, but still positive, and certainly not the terrifying calamity we are warned to expect.
The impact on farming, however, would be dramatic. In the three Prairie provinces alone, an area more than twice the size of France, arable land could increase between 26 and 40 per cent by 2040, according to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. With improvements in farm technology, drought-resistant crops and new harvesting methods, Canada would have a wonderful opportunity to help feed a hungry world. And not a moment too soon: according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization, agricultural output needs to increase by 50 per cent over the next 30 years to keep pace with world population growth.
Paradoxically, Canada is imposing burdensome costs and regulations to try to prevent what for us would be beneficial warming. But let’s not be so selfish. Other countries will be hurt by climate change, so we need to do our part as good global citizens. Unfortunately, at only 1.6 per cent of global GHG emissions, Canada cannot achieve a measurable impact on global temperatures, even if it met the latest UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change target, which would devastate our economy.
OK, we cannot make a practical difference, but surely we have to try, if only as a symbol of our determination to help the world counter an existential threat. Mind you, that is tantamount to elevating a meaningless gesture to a moral imperative. Moreover, once you get past all the doomsday prophesying and virtue-signalling, other countries’ commitments are honoured mainly in the breach, as global emissions continue to rise.
In a last-gasp rationale for sacrifice to the climate gods, we are urged to serve as a shining example of rectitude, presumably to inspire or shame others into action for their own good. Now we have truly arrived in fantasyland. Does anyone seriously imagine Canada can convince the four biggest carbon emitters, China, the U.S., India and Russia, who together are responsible for 57 per cent of global emissions, to follow our example of sequestered resources and undermined prosperity? The prime minister’s hectoring has zero influence on his counterparts. Two benefit from our inability to export energy overseas. Three barely tolerate his presence. And the fourth, Donald Trump, has abandoned the Paris accord.
Meanwhile, we are not doing what we can to address extreme weather, which directly and severely harms our economy and endangers Canadians. According to the Insurance Bureau of Canada, insured damages for extreme weather events amounted to $1.9 billion last year, with an estimated triple that for damage to public infrastructure.
Our focus needs to be on adaptation, reduction and protection, as well as on building resilience and increasing survivability. Initiatives could include: new land-use plans and building codes; incentives for moving homes and businesses away from high-risk areas, especially coasts; constructing flood defences and raising the levels of dikes; developing drought-tolerant crops; making forests less vulnerable to storms and fires and setting aside land corridors that permit species migration. Other collaborative strategies are early warning systems, co-ordinated emergency preparedness and public education about insurance protection and flood- and fire-prevention best practices.
Right now our overall approach is piecemeal. Canada badly needs competent leadership rather than dead-end ideological obsessions, rent-seeking and bureaucratic empire-building. We have witnessed the current government’s ineffective reaction to this pressing environmental challenge. Leading into the election, the other party leaders, and especially Andrew Scheer, head of a government-in-waiting, should tell Canadians how they would take it on differently, possibly with a federal-provincial-municipal action plan.
Instead, the House of Commons declares a “National Climate Emergency,” the emperor struts around with invisible policy clothes and the official climate jeremiad simultaneously scares our children and encourages progressives to seek an ever-larger role for an all-knowing government. Things will go very poorly for both the economy and the environment if we stubbornly continue to work against the national interest, pursue unachievable objectives, posture to unimpressed foreigners and inadequately prepare for extreme weather. Alas, the disconnect between belief and reality seems destined to endure for some time.
