Last week, Catherine McKenna, the Liberal environment minister, was jetting around again and she published this short comment on Twitter:
Flew over some wind turbines in Nova Scotia. I'm taking it as a good sign #CANClimateAction
Four things jumped to mind.
First — you’re flying. In an airplane. Again. She wants the rest of us to have a smaller carbon footprint. But not her.
The second is, her plane isn’t powered by wind turbines. You can't make planes in a factory made from wind turbines. Heck, you can’t make wind turbines in a factory powered by wind turbines.
Think about it...
Third: those wind turbines in Nova Scotia? They don’t actually produce power most of the time. They all need back-up generators.
So now Nova Scotia has two power systems. One for showing off, and one that does the work.
WATCH while I tell you what the fourth thing — my favourite thing — reveals about McKenna and Justin's Liberals...
