After denouncing the previous Tory government’s plan, Liberals copy it

Federal Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna finally admitted the painfully obvious on Sunday.

She acknowledged the Trudeau Liberals are not going to toughen Stephen Harper’s targets for reducing industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked to climate change.

This means that after years spent in opposition attacking as inadequate Harper’s targets of lowering GHG emissions to 17% below 2005 levels by 2020, and to 30% by 2030, the Liberals are adopting them.

    The Liberals have always stolen the ideas of others, usually more intelligent people.

    What a bunch of pathetic losers. The people that vote Liberal I mean.

    Yes, the Lieberals are back. They are screwing the West by forcing another National Energy Plan on them, they are giving money out like Wynne on steriods, including a new pledge of millions today to UN Swiss bank accounts, and now after screaming all election about Harper’s environment policies they are adopting it. But never fear, all women and young people still think he is wonderful. He is so young and cool.

    Every time I see that IDIOT’s face I want to do things to it that are illegal. And I’m not even Canadian. The man is such an absolute jackass in every way possible that he almost rivals Obama for sheer cluelessness.

      He is exactly a paler version of Obama, and as a Canadian I have the same urges when I see his mug.
