David Suzuki went to Saskatchewan to scold Saskatchewan and no one cared, not even the North Saskatchewan River.
Suzuki was in Saskatoon for a literary festival and while he was there he insulted the very wise Saskatchewan voters for electing Premier Brad Wall.
Suzuki told a reporter for a local radio station, he’s shocked that Saskatchewan voters would elect a “climate denier” to lead their province. He accused Brad Wall of not taking climate change seriously.
But right after he scolded Brad Wall for not being serious enough, David Suzuki spoke to a river.
“I apologize to you, river, for our thoughtlessness...for polluting you, great river, we are truly sorry”
The river did not reply to Suzuki and did not respond to my repeated requests for comment but knowing how Suzuki operates, he probably billed the river for the speech.
David Suzuki is apologizing to a river, but Brad Wall is the unserious one?
River Whisperer David Suzuki is one of the main activists driving public policy and public sentiment around climate change. What could possibly go wrong?
