Irony of Ironies...

John Baird just said on Politics (not with Don Newman today :( ) that if the Liberals had implemented the Tory environment plan in 1997, we would have met our Kyoto targets.

The ironic thing is that if the Liberals had implemented the Tory environment plan in 1997, the Tories and the Reform Party would have had a fit - and no doubt would John Baird (then an Ontario Tory cabinet minister) have as well, not to mention Stephen Harper.

Sorry, but it seems to me that you can't criticize somebody for not doing something that you would have condemned them for doing. The hypocrisy of these people is just amazing...

A fair point.

Now if only we could convince Liberals that you can't criticize somebody for not doing something that you didn't do while you were in office for 4,478 days, then maybe we could have a reasonable debate.

"A Liberal government will work with provincial and urban governments to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energies, with the aim of cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 20 percent from 1988 levels by the year 2005." (1993 Liberal Red Book, p. 70)

You want the Official Opposition to stop criticizing the Government in order to have a reasonnable debate?

Do you people ever listen to yourselves, or is partisanship all you've got?

Give it up, already.

The past is the past. Stephane Dion is not Jean Chretien or Paul Martin. When he served in their cabinets, he did their bidding. You can't hold the decisions of Jean Chretien against Stephane Dion.

Libs had 2 majorities and a Dipper backed minority, Chretien or Martin could have forced any green plan they wanted...like they did SSM.
So why did't they?
