Hooray for the Kids in the Commons
Wow. What a sight in the House of Pork. A young flash mob in the visitors gallery and blood in the corridors
And all I can say is good for them. At least some people in this incredibly passive country are willing to get off their asses and let the politicians know we DEMAND they do more to save our burning planet.
Because Stephen Harper's dirty oil government isn't even PRETENDING it wants to do anything to fight global warming.
Canadians must also recognize that any national emissions cap has to reflect differing conditions across the country so as not to punish high-growth provinces, he added. The minister has been consulting with provinces on a plan that would impose a cap on industrial emissions, but allow Alberta's energy-intensive, emissions-heavy oil sands to continue expanding.
And these Con oil hogs ....you know the Calgary Gang....are actually planning to waddle off to Copenhagen and shame us in the eyes of the world. By telling other countries we can't do it because we...um...CAN'T.
And they're counting on the complacency and selfishness of Canadians to get away with this crime against the planet.
So if some young Canadians feel they need to make a bit of noise to remind the politicians that they need to do better. I say go for it. It's THEIR future that is being torched. This country is dying of smugness. So the more noise the better.
Time is running out. Those Con oil hogs and planet destroyers need to hear our anger.
And the time for action is NOW !!!
