COLLINS – Climate plan doesn’t cut it
Posted on April 2, 2022 in Collins, Local Voices, Page One // 2 Comments
WE SPEAK, but we don’t do.
That pretty much sums up Canada’s $9.1 billion climate plan announced this week in Vancouver by the prime minister.
It’s a lot of money, but we’ve delayed serious action for so long that it’s really just a drop in the bucket.
Few details have been released so far, but we can already see huge gaps.
Doug Collins has had a wide background in the broadcast industry, having done virtually every type of news and sports broadcasting, including news anchor, sports play-by-play, and editorialist. His “One Man’s Opinion” aired on TV from 1973- 2013. He retired from his management roles in the station in October, 2018, but continues to write his column.
How many train-loads of coal pass through Kamloops every day to be burned in China?
We can tax ourselves into oblivion but until something is done to address the lion’s share of the problem, it’s doubtful that we will see much difference in the “global swimming pool” by claiming Canada is in the ‘no pollution section’.
Doug – This is so true in spades! Doc Suzuki as well as a few other way more far-sighted than the average bring-home-the-baconer hit the nail on the head. The rest of us had to watch the world drown, burn, melt, or get blown away before we had the wisdom hit our nervous systems before we engaged our mentalities. Probably too late. And don’t call me a doomster.
