Sorry, also on Climate Change. You would know that I was one of the strongest supporter on Council supporting the Kyoto Accord even though criticized by the main media at the time. I also supported enhancing public transit, creating a pedestrian mall at Gore, creating an energy department in the city etc etc etc
What I refuse to do even today as we are approaching the $100 per barrel cost of oil, is to believe that we must stop everything. I believe in action; and I believe in strong action, but we should also plan for jobs and economic growth in the city. If you have read Gwynn Dyer's recent essay on this topic, his views match mine very nicely.
As you know I am a candidate in the next Federal Election and my party, the Liberal Party under Stephane Dion will have a very sustainable plan to address climate change and the rising cost of fossil fuel as well as environmental sustainability. M. Dion with his emphasis on the economy, the environment and Social causes capture very nicely the spirit of what I tried to work on in my elected life.
