Peter Kent’s brave stand

by Aaron Wherry

John Baird said the Liberal cap-and-trade plan was “unCanadian” and Stephen Harper said the NDP cap-and-trade plan would “wreak enormous havoc on the Canadian economy,” but Environment Minister Peter Kent apparently thinks cap-and-trade could still be pursued at some point.

“There’s no expectation of cap-and-trade continentally in the near or medium future and we don’t believe that it would be wise to go with a shallow market in a closely integrated continental economy,” Kent said. “It can always be something to consider in the future.”

Peter Kent’s brave stand

  1.  ”“There’s no expectation of cap-and-trade continentally in the near or medium future ….. It can always be something to consider in the future.”

     Cap n Trade? Not in the future, that’s for certain, unless we change our minds.

    A little something for everyone …. welcome to the new Liberal Party of Canada.

    • THAT’S IT! The New Liberals. That will stick. 

      Less crude than the SupposiTories. 

  2. Yup, the second Tuesday of the week beginning on the 12th of never. 

    I note with amusement though that we now have ‘a shallow market in a closely integrated continental economy’

  3.  Well the Liberal Party, er, I mean the Tories….well. 

    Hmm.

    Let me think for a moment. Well, they’re SUPPOSED to be Tories right? Supposed to be Tories.

    SupposiTories?

  4. The one word descriptor for Conservative climate change action is “future.” Predecessor Liberal government synonym was “voluntary.”
