Environmental Hypocracy

The Current Conservative Government is using the budget now before Parliament to undermine our environmental protection. The Budget will amend the Navigable Waters Protection Act to let cabinet exempt certain rivers and lakes from regulations that limit dumping and damming. Can't you just see what the oil industry will do to the Athabasca River when they get it exempted. The whole MacKenzie River system will be destroyed.

At the same time Transport Minister John Baird is considering cutting back the breadth and scope of environmental assessment laws in the name of removing red tape.

It will be open season on our fresh water rivers!

I ask how can the Liberals be supporting this budget with out amendments??

I think Ignatieff said he will call for amendments when the time comes. The people sure do not want an election yet! The
Country cannot afford it.
