This is nuts! We live in one of the cleanest natural environments on the planet - surrounded by the sea and rain forests. We get three feet of rain dumped on us every year and cleansing winds blow constantly off the ocean. We have abundant hydro electricity and little or no heavy industrial activity. And there’s absolutely no credible sign of "global warming".
The new Victoria mayor, in a CTV interview last night, named his top priorities as "homelessness, transportation and global warming".
My own city’s newly elected mayor declared that his was a "green-friendly" win.
The environment can safely go to the bottom of the priority list. There’s no need, beyond pure politics, to have it at the top.
