Premier Brad Wall criticizes Governor General’s ‘divine intervention’ speech

Odd duck.

Premier Brad Wall has taken aim at comments that Gov. Gen. Julie Payette made in a speech to the Canadian Science Policy Convention last week.

On Nov. 1, Payette made critical statements about pseudo science, creationism and unwillingness by some people to accept that climate change is man-made.

“We are still debating and still questioning whether life was a divine intervention or whether it was coming out of a natural process let alone, oh my goodness, a random process,” Payette said in her speech.
