Al Gore & David Suzuki double team the Tories

Al Gore: An Inconvenient Truth

Originally uploaded by jotape85.

The Canadian Press has the story of Al Gore and Vancouver’s own David Suzuki coming out against the Conservatives’ new environmental policy. It seems Al’s down with David but not with Stephen Harper, which seems pretty much par for the course. The Province has the story here [tvp].

Money quote? Al Gore on the Conservatives’ police, “In my opinion, it is a complete and total fraud. It is designed to mislead the Canadian people.”

Harper’s Enviro-Lacky John Baird shot back by saying, “The fact is our plan is vastly tougher than any measures introduced by the administration of which the former vice president was a member.” Which, for our American readers, is Canadian for “Fuck off.”

    Bullshit! Anyone and everyone knows that that’s Canadia-speak for Fuck You, too. As in we all know the U.S. left Canada behind in terms of protecting its environment regardless of ANY political denomination in power left or right. Which is why everytime Baird opens his mouth to speak we need spittle protection from his self righteous and vitriolic fuelled rants, and that is its his only method of protection from any critics who firmly denounce his stand of playing politics with our environment. For instance, the Libs tried to ban the importation of MMT into Canada as a health and environmental hazard and had to have it rescinded as a result of what? NAFTA. But that takes balls to say something like that about a former VP. I’d like to see Baird write a book the same size as the tome Gore has written on the environment. Surely he did not mean to infringe upon the 15 year old now Canada-United States Air Quality Agreement and their yearly reports? I believe he is taking the results of tens and hundreds of millions of dollars Canadian scientists have made with help from Liberal government through funding and trying to run into the end zone with some bold pseudo-dynamic thinking to try and undo the damage his own government has done through things like NAFTA and the like. It’s actually quite deplorable. It’s no wonder Canadians get disgusted with politics by watching such wonderful Machiavellian practices such as these in motion.

    Gore later admitted he hadn’t even read the thing he and suzuki are just being partisan.

    They are both hyprocrites, Suzuki for having a horkin bus and AL for having a 30,000 electric bill while telling the rest of us to cut back.
