Quebec and Alberta disagree on climate change as well Ottawa’s recent decision to turn its back on the greenhouse-gas emission targets set in the Kyoto accord. Mr. Charest, who has been a strong defender of Kyoto, remains supportive of the development of the Alberta oil sands despite its impact on climate change. Instead, Mr. Charest has focused on Alberta’s efforts to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.
“Quebec has in this area private and public resources and it is one area where we can co-operate [with Alberta] to develop new technologies and improve our environmental record,” Mr. Charest said.
Translation: Quebec can get carbon credits from Alberta.
Our premier is selling Alberta out. She is not a supporter of our oil sands, she is intent on creating a name for herself. She is a LIBERAL, get that through your heads Albertans.
What did she promise Quebec for their support? They don't even buy our oil! Let me speculate on how it went.
RED Ali: We will give you BILLIONS of dollars in carbon credits for your doing nothing, because the greens love your hydro power, and you can make Alberta look good.
Charest: Okay. Just don't let Newfoundland and Labrador into our arrangement, we still have years of gouging them left.
Did Red Ali promise Ontario's McGinny the same thing? They are very, very careful not to say "carbon credits, or carbon tax" but is that what The Red is promising? Something got Quebec on side, that is the only thing that makes sense.
My question is why is she going around the country and promoting a "national" energy program? Our resources are ours, not Quebec's or Ontario's. I see no up side for Alberta. I see no reason for her to be promoting this NEP2. I see no reason for voting for this Joe Clark clone. Wake up Alberta, before we turn into the next have not province. Vote Wildrose!
