Progress Or Politics?

If you start the following video at about the 5:30 mark, you will hear a surprising answer from Conservative MP Braid Braid when asked by Evan Solomon if the Harper government believes in climate change.

Progress or mere politics? You decide.


  1. 50-to-70 billion dollars in infrastructure funding over 10-years isn't much when the best expert minds we have put the cost of infrastructure upgrades and repairs at upwards of a trillion dollars. We need a coherent, federal-provincial initiative that identifies targets and how we'll reach them and then works out the cost and how we'll meet that. What we know is that, if we don't make these investments, the cost will be far greater.

    1. The fact that none of the parties is looking at the long-term picture is a sad reminder that politics trumps the public good yet again, Mound.
