BTC: Fight illiteracy (II)


 

Apparently the government House leader lets Jason Kenney do his reading for him. Unless we are to assume that not one, but two members of cabinet lack the ability to read.

Here, again, is what’s written on page 16 of the Liberal plan. “We believe that our target should be to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020. This should be increased to at least 25 per cent if other countries take on comparable efforts.”

(I’ve not got a transcript on hand of Mr. Dion’s post-announcement press conference, so you’ll have to trust my memory that he conveyed much the same message then.)

And here, at the last QP session before summer, is what Peter Van Loan had to say this morning.

“Mr. Speaker, in the tax plan the Liberal leader released yesterday, a tax plan he said he would never have, in that tax plan he does not mention one single ounce of reduction in greenhouse gases…

“…a plan that says absolutely nothing about reducing greenhouse gases…

“…he did not say one word about one figure, about one ounce of reduction in greenhouse gases…

“…not one figure, not one ounce, of greenhouse gas reduction included…

“…not one ounce in reduction in greenhouse gases…”
