A minister who could even say such things should not be in cabinet
The federal Liberals are starting to reveal what they really think. And they think demon oil is the perfect foil for October’s federal election.
Take this remarkable tweet from Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, who was reacting to news that Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer met privately with oil executives at an Alberta lodge to talk about election campaigns, among other things.
“Straight from Harper’s playbook,” she wrote. “Andrew Scheer has been caught scheming behind closed doors with wealthy executives to gut environmental protection laws, silence critics, and make pollution free again.”
The zealous minister misses her own irony. “Scheming behind closed doors with wealthy executives” is an exact description of Liberal behaviour in the SNC-Lavalin case.
But never mind that. Or mind it, if you like.
