OMG. You'd think she would do better. You'd think she would live up to the honour of being the first Inuk appointed to a federal cabinet.
You'd think she would do all she could to help and protect the people who live in the arctic from the devastating effects of climate change. Her people.
But no, Leona Aglukkaq is no Minister of the Environment. She's just another shabby Con climate change denier.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s environment minister is casting doubt about scientific observations of melting summer sea ice in Canada’s north. In a short televised interview on CTV’s daily political show, Power Play, Leona Aglukkaq suggested the scientific observations were not as important as the Harper government’s priorities in its new role as chair of a group of Arctic nations.
When asked by Martin if she had personally observed changes in the Canada’s north, Aglukkaq, who represents the riding of Nunavut in Parliament, sighed before saying it was “debatable” whether the Arctic was warmer, explaining that northerners experienced a cold summer in general with snow in some areas.
Can you believe that? And so soon after making a complete fool of herself by all but ignoring the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. And attacking the NDP's nonexistent carbon tax.
"Unlike the previous Liberal government, under whose watch greenhouse gas emissions rose by almost 30 per cent, or the NDP, who want a $21-billion carbon tax, our government is actually reducing greenhouse gases and standing up for Canadian jobs," Aglukkaq said in the release.
But then why should we be surprised eh? When this whole new/nouveau Con cabinet is just a bad joke. Agglukkaq is no Minister of the Environment.
Just like Rona Ambrose is no Health Minister. How could she be? When she would put her own foul ideology before the lives of some of the sickest and most vulnerable Canadians.
Health Minister Rona Ambrose announced this afternoon that Health Canada will never again allow doctors to provide prescription heroin to patients through the Special Access Program (though she did suggest doctors who wished to do so could attempt to pursue the matter through provincial routes).
Or put her moralistic crap before harm reduction and scientific evidence.
Here is how the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction summarized the global research in this regard. A small population of chronic heroin users, once thought to be ‘untreatable’, is now benefiting from a novel type of therapy using medicinal heroin as the substitution drug. In a new report out today from the EU drugs agency (EMCDDA), experts describe the development as ‘an important clinical step forward’.
It's depressing, it's pathetic, it's CRIMINAL.
But then again why should we be surprised eh? When it all comes from the diseased mind of Stephen Harper, the climate change denier who once claimed that carbon dioxide wasn't a problem.
It would take more than one letter to explain what’s wrong with Kyoto, but here are a few facts about this so-called “Accord”: — It’s based on tentative and contradictory scientific evidence about climate trends. — It focuses on carbon dioxide, which is essential to life, rather than upon pollutants.
The Kyoto killer who is now trying to fool the Americans into believing he's a REAL environmentalist...
The leader of the pathetic gang of Con artists, who also happens to be the maniac who secretly believes that medicare is socialism. And is doing all he can to destroy it, or privatize it beyond recognition, by making the provinces too poor to afford it.
The Conservative government is downloading billions of dollars of health-care costs on the provinces, says the parliamentary budget officer, making federal finances sustainable over the long term but leaving provincial governments to stare down severe financial pains in the coming years.
The PBO’s annual long-term fiscal sustainability report released Thursday says the Harper government’s decision to scale back the growth in Canada Health Transfer payments means provincial governments will increasingly struggle to afford health-care services for their citizens.
As I've warned again and again. Because that's the way he operates. Stealthy, stealthy, creepy crawly, and the knife in the back.
Oh well. Surely Canadians will wake up soon and realize this isn't a Canadian government it's a sinister Con klown show.
And in the meantime let's get ready to greet Stephen Harper's new/nouveau cabinet when it shuffles out of the darkness and into the light again...
Get your peanuts ready.
Try not to laugh too loudly eh?
And then ask yourself this happy question:
When we can fire them ALL...
