Pierre Poilievre has been a professional politician all his life. It's the only job he's ever done.
He's a feral politico if ever there was one, with a well honed survival instinct.
So it's hard to understand how he could have made such a potentially catastrophic mistake as thinking he could get away with ignoring the issue of climate change.
Even though it's the biggest issue we face.
Even as the planet burns.
Poilievre gambled on the ignorance and greed of many Canadians, he lost, and now he's going to get burned.
For what's happening in the U.K. and in Europe has made climate change too big, too uncomfortable and too dangerous to ignore.
Poilievre is running away from a lot of things these days.
The Bitcoin balloon that blew up in his face. His sinister buddies in the trucker terrorist movement. His brutish record as a stooge in the Harper regime.
But he can't get away from climate change, and it will be the issue that eats him alive...
P.S: I got a couple of texts from friends in England announcing that they are planning to move to Canada. But I told them not to bother. Where I live it was 35 degrees this afternoon, and felt like 42. So we’re all in this together…
