This week, Liberal Environment Critic Hon. John Godfrey accused Stephen Harper and the Conservatives of enganging in Orwellian tactics as they rewrite government websites to erase all mention of Kyoto and climate change.
“This is a government in denial about climate change,” says Mr. Godfrey. “They don’t like the science, and now they want to censor it. This is Orwellian.”
Mr. Holland (Ajax-Pickering MP) agreed, saying, “Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government is tied closely to leading climate change skeptics in the United States and the petroleum industry. This government has a track record of listening to people with dubious views on the environment and climate change. They pretend to be interested in a ‘Made in Canada’ approach, but this is code for doing nothing.”
The Conservatives attempt at revisionist history is an undiluted example of propaganda and manipulation, and it is long overdue for the official opposition to hold them to account.
