Kate over at Small Dead Animals links into this story from Sun News about NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair’s hatred for the oil industry.
She juxtaposes this comment:
“We know that it is impossible to maintain the current manner of tarsands development without seriously affecting the health of human beings – and without destroying important ecosystems forever. He (Harper) is currently placing the largest ecological and economic debt imaginable in the backpacks of our children and grandchildren,”
Against this news out of Quebec:
“Huge mining giants from Europe, China and India are pumping billions of dollars into virgin territories in far northern Quebec in a race to satisfy a growing global appetite for iron ore”
Quebec let’s remember flooded huge parts of its province to build the James Bay dam system to provide hydro-electricity.
Mulcair has been hitting hard at the Western provinces and blaming them for the drop in manufacturing in Ontario and Quebec. That has led BC’s Christie Clark, Alberta’ Alison Redford and Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall to all counter Mulcair who then dismissed the premiers as Harper’s messengers.
Brad Wall tweeted out at Mulcair, we’ll see if he listens. I think this all answers Kinsella’s question as to why the Conservatives haven’t attacked Mulcair.
