Guest blog: Feet on solid Canadian ground

My occasional guest-blogging friend returns with a folksy and real assessment of today’s political scene.  I’m glad to provide him this space since his job isn’t so permissive as to allow him to maintain a regular blog.

    Stephen, you make your point kindly, and yet I feel, well,I can see Dions narrow little butt in a trajectory that will indeed enable him to “patch” the ozone layer, if he could just get rid of the “atomic wedgie” your well placed (dirty)boot has left him with. As he soars he will notice I am sure that the earth is not green at all, it is indeed TORY BLUE.
    Cheers,and thanks for a gem of an article, Bubba

    Not my article. This one was written by a friend.

    'Have to wonder if Dion is suited for politics at all. It appears he's lived a very isolated life and has no concept of the Canadian reality from coast to coast. If the Liberal party were in a position to actually win any election and regain power they would never have chosen a hapless scapegoat as “leader”. If he were up to the job would the old boys and younger keeners not be out helping him? Why is he left with the likes of Garth Turner, on his last legs in politics, to help him sell his carbon tax, as a yet to be explained clearly?

    For the record, S.Harper also wanted Canadians to be shouldering our rifles in the deserts of Iraq, a mission that presently works against our defense of a NATO ally.
    Aren't any Conservatives going to stand up for the science of Al Gore or the public good of universities and bicycles? The article is snippy. Climate change will negatively affect Conservative farmers, fishers, and mineral exporters to China in the long-term, even if it hurts to address immediately. The theme of this article is that Conservative environmental policies are good for Earth?!
    I wonder how many farmers have engineered their own crop varieties vs how many use crops developed in the Universities that are being mocked here?
    Feel free to suggest an alternative to carbon tax; AB ridings are safe regardless.
